Happy New Year my fellow toads and visitors!
I hope for all of us this will be a wonderful year!
Today's challenge is a simple one. Below are quotes addressing a new year. Choose as few as one or bits of all of them as jumping boards for inspiration. Write about the new year in resolutions, non resolutions, hopes, dreams, plans, or merely the acknowledgement the calender has turned over into a new year. This is your poetic step into 2015!
"Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, 'It will be happier." Alfred Lord Tennyson
“For last year's words belong to last year's language And next year's words await another voice.” T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets
“We desire an exciting future, but the demand for familiar and comfortable tempers our steps to the point that often our steps are little more than stepping in place.” Craig D. Lounsbrough
As always and especially since this is a brand new year, write a brand new poem for the challenge; add it to Mr. Linky; and celebrate by reading your fellow poets' work.
