Welcoming 2019 2nd (better) draft

To those of you who either don’t have Facebook, never go to my site (Arlene Corwin Poetry.com) or have anything to do with poetry, I send you this thoughtful but quickly written welcome into the new year. (There’s something sublimely didactic in me that comes out when writing. I think it’s a good thing). The simple rhymes will make it easy for everyone.

Welcoming 2019🧘‍♀️🌈

When everything around is going fast to hell,
We owe it to ourselves to ring out every bell inside (ourselves)
Feel well inside, to ride it out
With cheer and hope,
Not saying ‘nope’ nor moping
In a state
Of negativity.

Let’s pop the cork of generosity;
Philanthropy with common sense and insight,
Making right the wrongs not -out but inside.
Face the new year with old wisdoms.
Every culture has, knew, knows them
Through the sages of the ages.

Let us not to be harmed by karma’s laws.
Past causes always swallowed up by Time;
Let’s sow new seeds as yet unsown
For we, the generators
Are creators
And the future is unknown.

Out with scum, the humdrum, and the dumb
Caught up in day by day.
The busy-ness of nothingness
Is not for us.

As said before,
Let’s greet the year
With hope and cheer
Despite clear omens of the climes
And sheer despair
Of scattering diaspora from native homelands,
And, and, and – and, and.

In between,
Let’s welcome in
Twenty nineteen
Taking care
To make clean air
(for air is everywhere).

Blessings and good luck!

Welcome 2019 1.1.2019 Our Culture Our Times II; Nature In & Of Reality; Arlene Nover Corwin
