Happy New Year

Out with the old
In with the New –
Or so I’ve heard.

Instead,
Old and new become the same
soup I make myself –
mixed and melded
A spoon meandering back and forth –
combining ingredients

A frosting thickening
equal parts of sweet and savory
thin and powdery
magic if you believe in it.

Intrinsically real
in funhouse mirrored facades
of a life being lived.

Find a window, find a reflection.

Resolutions resolved through
free falling action
to a denouement (instead) which becomes exposition –
because stories don’t always
begin how you expect
and the best endings
are unpredicatble
and always leave you wanting more.

Happy New Year!
Cheers to struggling and striving
Living and loving
Into new and old stories
we will continue to tell.
