The New Year

The road
Ahead is a
Mystery, curving through
The new year – two-thousand-eleven
The adventures are hidden from me still
And I look forward eagerly
To the first bend in the
Track of the road
Ahead.

Inspired in part by L.M. Montgomery, the hymn Woyaya, and Robert Frost.

Posted for Monday Poetry Potluck.

    Like the idea of that first bend – a bend for good or a not?

  6. All roads have bends, don’t they? I guess without the bends there would be no excitement.
