New Year Poem

New Year
In the city of light...
The sound of hope

Feasting
In the ‘hood, this
New Year Eve
The enduring legacy
Of the epicurean past

Looking at the
The New Year with
Lustful eyes…
She found the golden
Heart of love divine

The old year
Goes off with a bang
The heart sings

The lost boy tells
His own story of survival
Year after year...
The golden wattle
Blooms

Inspired by
The cosmic birth of time
The naked poet
Sat on the rock
Writing his first tanka

Aussie New Year takes
The dreamtime city by storm
Sumptuous wind

Clowns
And comedians in
High spirits…
A gala ball at the
Dawn of time
