Rooster of the New Year

Written for:  Carpe Diem #650, First Rooster Crowing (hatsutori)
After New Year’s Eve and after the fireworks we go to bed, because life starts all over … and after a festive New Year’s Eve it’s nice to go to sleep and dream about the future or the past, but then …. the first rooster crows as it starts to become light again. What a short night we had, but that first rooster crowing does help us to remember that life goes on … nothing has changed, only the year has changed …


Daybreak of new year
Rooster crows in back yard
Same sound as every day

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
