happy 2018 all

happy 2018 all

By jfarrell


May the new year, tomorrow,

Be your best ever.

More prosperous, happier, easier.


Tonight, enjoy the crowds, the sights, the thrills,

The warmth and companionship of other people, strangers;

Please enjoy the spectacular fireworks display.


For me,

Long ago, a firework was put through my letterbox

And my hall went up in flames.


This past year,

Too many innocents have died in flames.

Fireworks don’t feel to me as they to others…


No matter…


Tomorrow, 2018, sees the birth of a brand new, unwritten future,

For us all.

Happy new year.
