A Brand New Day

A Brand New Day

Passing days as winter sets in

Diminishing light toward the Winter Solstice

Slushy snow covers unforgiving ground

As the calendar ticks off another day in December

Seasonal settings of holly and evergreens

Mixed with aromas of bayberry and sage

Left over memories of childhood days forgotten

As an orange colored sunrise reflects on frozen land

Time for reinventing with each ribbon festooning

New memories to put in the pocket

Of life’s evolving entries in the years that lie ahead

As the shortening days elongate

And the mixture of the seasons

Casts a new refrain for singing

A divertissement in time

And the passing days as winter sets in

Recollects the golden shadows of days not long ago

In memories parsed in sunlight refracting through a window

And the birth of a brand new day
