clear air

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1842 End Of Year

"In classical Japan (following the Lunar calendar) there was a fifth season ''New Year", and this season was from approximately 20 December 'til 20 January." 

 after New Year's Eve
 life hasn't changed a bit -
 another year gone

 listen! listen!
 the sweet silence
 the day after

 New Year's Eve
 fireworks enlightens the sky -
 bad ghosts flee

Here is my attempt:

old year of black smoke
trapped in Dreamcatcher's web
clears air for new year

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.
