How we take the positive from last year
Chinks of light
Flicker in eyes,
As the new year starts.
Blindsided as we were,
By a microbe. New life sees
Optimism rising, despite
Hesitant hearts, our heads held high.
Defeat no option, day by day we fly
Into a future meant to be different.
Sights not seen in eons, Everest so clear,
Nature spreads to strange places, clarity of birdsong.
Can we keep this
New side effect
Of a sad year
To make for all,
A Lovely Day.
