moving forward

moving forward

moving forward

long before night
leaves, a light
pushes back the darkness

one second
to the next, mid-night,
new year

celebration, hope
for better, doing our best
to hold on to what we have

as the sun rises,
nothing changes

everything changes

New year, new star

I’m sure that many who follow me in their reader also follow Jane, but I want to share this, regardless. Her writing can take many different directions (all of them good). In this, I find myself thinking of my life as one minuscule part of all that surrounds me, yet as an integral part of that greater whole, and that is a good thing.

Jane Dougherty Writes

This tanka is for Frank Tassone’s New Year challenge.


Stars, sky-spangles shift,

slow and stately, wheels turning,

through time and cold space.

Each new year, another light

in the endless firmament.
