*I actually wrote exactly a year ago! And even though I may be a bit early, Happy New Years Everybody!

As though a sculpture in museum
Half in the light, half in the shade
Unfinished quarter of an apple
Sits on a emptied plate

Portraying calmness of a lake
Which gusty wind has no discovered
A cup of tea, as dark as ink
Since morning stands uncovered

A spoon, a fork, a butter knife--
Aligned together like three guards,
Are on patrol to keep the stillness
In the unfinished game of cards

Along the window in the sunshine
A dog’s stretched out for a nap
It listens for the softest sound
And waits for the owner to come back

As for the moment, frozen silence
As though fresh air fills up the room
And all the memories of 1999
Are swept away with a magic broom



 I fell in love and kept on falling

Excellent imagery, Master!  

My favorite stanza was...

"Along the window in the sunshine
A dog's stretched out for a nap
It listens for the softest sound
And waits for the owner to come back"

I also love how it all relates to the ending of a year!   Great.

This is great...A job well done!

Terrific imagery and poem, Master!

Elizabeth

 Nail to the mast her holy flag,
Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!

when I read this I think of my children who have gone and left home some have died and some grand children too, but mostly I felt how they are gone on with lives of their own.
