It’s a New Year

And some things feel old:

A quiet moon,

Laundry on my bed,

Hope in my heart

Feelings in my head.

I want to move the mental

Out—down to my toes.

I want to know the shimmer

And shake of energy’s light,

Let it grow wings so

My heart can take flight.

I plant what’s past on the edge of my bed

Dream the present into a future I believe.

Night takes hold. Late becomes early.

I ease into now and relieve

Hurt with forgiveness and joy.

I let go of all I know

To open a door that leads to a place

Where life’s promise flows with grace.

Edie Lazenby

Edith Lazenby’s first love is poetry. Her second is yoga. Life unrolls in ways she could have never have imagined. She loves to love and live life daringly. Leap and the net will appear is how the saying goes but they don’t tell you what to do after it disappears.

Edith lives in Baltimore with her cat, Cucumber. She works all the time, it seems, these days. Life is good. Blessings are many.
