January Joyfulness (New Beginnings)


O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvelous things: his right hand

and his holy arm,hath gotten him the victory.

Psalm 98:1

New Beginnings

The eve of beginnings, of new hope and belief

As the January month awakens from sleep

Creeping her way the new unfolds

With optimistic magic for what she will hold

The pen has fresh ink, the paper is white

As the author creates a new passionate write.

From January forward

To December end

Poets all gather to share, love and befriend.

So with winter breaking and Spring waiting to start

I blow out the cobwebs and open my heart.

Anticipating, the words ebb and flow

From what secrets I’m keeping and the secrets I’ll show

Gathered together we write with desire

About the sun and the moonlight, the rain and the fire

To the last line we celebrate as a new verse is born

Whilst the muses still whisper from dusk till dawn.

-Julie Cottoningham
