Dear Readers,

Poetry seems appropriate any time of year, and so instead of a newsletter this month, I've written a poem, just for you!

The New Year blooms,
fragrant with possibility.
We breathe deep,
then count the days like petals,
plucking them one by one,
deciding along the way
whether we will do and say
whatever it takes
to make each moment sweet,
or at least
worth remembering.
It's up to us
to make the most
of what we're given.
We must treasure
each hour, knowing
neither rose, nor year
will last forever.

Happy New Year!

Bye, for now.

Until next time, see you on Facebook, or Twitter @nikkigrimes9
