We will open the book.
Its pages are blank.
We are going to put words on them ourselves.
The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.
~Edith Lovejoy Pierce
I don’t have any words for 2014.
One would think in a year of such struggle and intensity,
I might have some desire to speak of its misery.
But there was enough light.
Not enough to really see by,
but enough to maintain hope for a brighter year next.
Much has happened to me and around me.
My wish is for more creation, more say so,
more stories that I author for myself.
