Poem

Before Another Year Ends

Before we left for the December 31st
Dew Drop Inn cookie and conversation fest
I took down all my 2016 Calendars
and replaced them with 2017
Today is 2017 minus one

Running into everyone we knew and
some others we hope to know more
we conversated on movies,
the courage needed to cross some streets
and movies, plays, and words

Walking back in time to walk the dogs by light
prepare for a modest evening’s celebrate
i felt good that i could walk so well and
think so well and write… as well as i can
and still hold dreams of an uncertain future
