A country girl’s New Year

New Year and my skeleton rattle of

memories of withered days

lies like an evil smoke in the air

headlines from the miserable color-spattering

paint strokes in the dark

I throw away an old treasure map from my

ruined soul on the ocean

a cold winter night that casts a veil over me of

ice crystals

I howl against the moon and

wave to nature’s queen between the stars

a dark room in my heart with fear of another

new and strange year

the old I wipe out from the canvas of life

a collection of thoughts from my dead eyes and

my scars of madness in my wounds of running

from the unknown

You spoke to me in poetry

tangle me in your rhyme

you danced with me in my darkness of sorrow

and wake me up inside

my broken heart heal

and this year you can’t burn someone who is

made of fire…

I reach for your hand

I inhale your memory because when I exhale

your ghost beneath the lilac skies and where

the cold winds blows as they strip you away…

it is time to watch what happens when bravery

lights the way

unlike storms left undspoken

-I have stared into the abyss

and it has stared back into me

I have lived there-in hell…

I will rewrite the ending to start over on the


Welcome 2020

  2. Happy New Year to you Lillian! I pray it will be filled with many blessings and much beauty for you!! A wonderful poem showing the old and the new. The new comes and the old goes. Wonderfully captured in your words Lillian. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!😁😸⛄🌲

      1. Thank you so much Lillian! I am starting to feel better, the muscle has basically healed though some complications have come up but hopefully everything will be fine over time and I should be walking again normally in 4 to 6 weeks.
        Enjoy your weekend Lillian!😃😺😻⛄

  3. Lots of beautiful metaphors here. I love all, especially these lines:

    «I throw away an old treasure map from my

    ruined soul on the ocean»

    Such a lovely way to express the need of a restart, life as a sea adventure, an introspective journey to the human soul. This is a myth along literature, where the introspective journey quite often also implies a geographical one, from the ancient Greeks like Homer with the Odyssey.

    I also love the power and beauty of these lines:

    «I howl against the moon and

    wave to nature’s queen between the stars

    a dark room in my heart with fear of another

    new and strange year

    the old I wipe out from the canvas of life»

    The last verse has special strength, so pictorial.

    And this is also very beautiful and sensual:

    «I inhale your memory..» and the idea of exhaling your ghost… wow!

    Great artwork and poetry, Lillian! ❤❤
