Because this is the beginning of the New Year 2009 I reprint here one of my poems suitable for the occasion:
Blank Pages Beckon
Numbered pages of a New Years organizer,
stare blank and stark, beckoning to be filled.
Chrysalis of mental energy, separately set in perfect blocks
meetings, lunches, parties, vacations,
wait for birthing into reality.
Penciled in are doctors visits, shopping trips, job interviews
pending transformation into daily drama.
Weddings, baptisms, divorces and custody wars
scribbled amongst work-a-day scenes.
Those chancy twins, sickness and death,
not known for scrupulous planning, will, in time,
serpentine into the record.
The world orders its life on pristine pages,
harnessing time to its dreams.
Resolved to master the randomness of fate,
by cataloging its schemes.

I wish you good health, good times, good friends.
