Welcoming the New Year


I watch the snow, melting
Rain pelting down on it,
Forcing it to change its state
Into a form that flows freely.

This year of hardened memories
Resists the press of time
Not wanting to slide a little further,
Leaving the present
To the new and unthought experience,
Yesterday flowing more freely
As the new year comes.
