it's just another day...yet



it's just another day...
yet
the world
conspires to make it seem
a tabula rasa.

today's the day to begin
we're told
to change the way we
eat
pray
live.



yet
nothing in my life
good or bad
every commenced
on the first of january.



i was born in august
got the job that i would keep
for thirty years
on the third of march
and left it
on the 28th.
on a day in may
inconspicuous on the calendar
i gave up alcohol
and death
of course
never obeys the calendar.



still
the push is there
to make a promise
to be better
create more

each day
a haiku?
a collage?
a photograph?
a blog entry?
less mess?



so
i resolve
to put one foot
in front of the other
with intention
in spirit
in thought
with pen and paper and
in the real world.

there.

wish me luck &
happy new day
