Ahead to 2021

Edge of a new year - exploring the pauses

No resolutions
only solutions.
Vaccine for pandemic
relief, new President.
Hoping fear recedes,
jobs meet needs.
No person hungry
or homeless, endless mercy.


About purplepeninportland

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.

    Yes, relief. But i wish the outgoing administration would get some financial relief to those who need it. 2021 will be better. I am so ready for it. Stay safe, Sara.

    Happy New Year Sara! 🙂

    Solutions are what we need, agreed. We are ending 2020 on hopeful notes as to a few of those items.

    Hopefully our demented ex-president will fade into the sunset (probably too much to ask), and 2021 be a peaceful year, with vaccine curbing the pandemic and some form of normalcy returning. Here’s to the good things!

    Happy New Year …. stay safe and healthy.


  6. I love the way this ends- ‘endless mercy’- yes!

    I love this Sara! Solutions and endless mercy!! Wishing you a safe and hopeful 2021!


  8. Solutions–hundreds and hundreds of them–seem like the things to work for.

    SUCH relief! Even among Canadians, as we watch everything on our screens, and the rhetoric caused problems in Canada too. Solutions and mercy sound good to me!
