Welcome the new year like a new pair of socks!
A new bundle of socks! Ready for the roads ahead.
Smell them now. Fresh! Clean! New! Unworn.
A year from now they’ll have been used hard.
Some in shoes, boots and on floors. Or worse!
With holes, worn through spots and frays.
Each a bit of the journey, sweated and bloodied.
A bundle of socks to bring in the new year!
A promise of new roads ahead, adventures.
Something to go towards, to grow towards.
A new year is a comin’ like it or not.
Like your new socks, it is just waiting to go.
Come this time next year, where will you be?
Where will your socks and feet have taken you?
Brace for an adventure, and be ready for work.
Cold days may take two pair, and others none.
Barefeet with socks tucked away, beach days!
Dancing in new boots, a blister or two. Ouch.
Walking in old shoes with new socks – bliss!
Take the miles as they come, store up memories.
Dance. Laugh. Smell. Taste. LIVE large and loud.
Happy New Year poetic friends! We’ll see you in 2014. Don’t forget some new socks! 🙂 Oh and thanks to my dear husband, Earl, for being my inspiration, my motivation and my sometimes visual. Love you, always and in all ways!
