I prefer
The second definition
'Sober thoughtfulness'
To the prolonged state of...

For everyone
Must have some
Remembering time,
When things long gone...

Are remembered
Sometimes tearfully,
But then today comes back...

Things to do,
People to interact with,
Looking up to tomorrow,
Times long gone return to the past...

Faint echoes of
Are not to be lived in
But remembered... Occasionally...

Is greeted with hope
With the creation of
New memories... New blessings...

Each day
We give ourselves
The gift of being in this day...
The gift of new beginnings...

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. (

New year, 2015

So here
it is again,  
a new year starts…

Daily life
cycles in
as we wake each day…

The cold days
& even colder nights
keep us bundled up & thinking…

As we
new beginnings of life…

Cleaning out
lots of accumulation,
not only of stuff but of thoughts…

Looking forward
to new adventures,
new places to explore… new days…

Looking up
to Hope, Light,
and peaceful spirit of mind…

Keep our eyes
on the Light of life,
salvation of spirit, joy of days…

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it. (
Psalms 90:12, 17
