Making good Mondays is like making coffee -

The week is before us - like the coffee pot - waiting to brew. Making it good is a matter of choice, luck, creativity, patience and acceptance of the outcome.

Happy New Year to You, Dear Earth

I want to wish you . . .
A Happy New Year, dear Earth.
You deserve better than a penny's worth
Of righteous effort from us.

I want to wish you. . .
A better bunch of friends in high places.
You deserve a set of brand new faces
Honoring their Bully Pulpits.

I want to wish you. . .
A decent shot at normal temp trends.
You deserve relief from over extended
Fossil fuel fires of waste.

I want to wish you . . .
A Chilly Winter at both your poles.
You deserve fewer gaping holes
In those precious ozone layers.

I want to wish you. . .
A Happy New Year, dear Earth.
You deserve at least a rebirth
Of higher rescue aspirations.

Belinda, I, indeed, am having a pretty good New Year. I appreciate your warm comment.
I visited your two websites, the gallery and your journal. Your work is beautiful -- lovely images and words. Yours is the first blog that I have seen in bilingual form. That is a lot of work and an impressive gift to your readers. Thank you for that.
You have only been doing this for a few months. I hope you are enjoying the experience.
I will visit again. I think we both might enjoy getting to know each other. We have lots in common. Happy New Year to you, too.
