The build up

The build up to the moment when
the year ends and
the year begins it’s
over in a flash of
fireworks and champagne
and we’re in it all ready
for new starts
a clean sweep
a fresh page to write
we dare
what we wish
we hope then
soon it will be
time to turn over again leaving
a blank page
a clean slate that
wasn’t lived
black slate wet with
rain and tears or
shiny with
smiles and mirrors of delight
as ever the choice is there
three hundred and sixty five times
