Poems to Celebrate New Beginnings
Here are a few quotes which describe my start in the New Year, courtesy of The Poetry Foundation, The Poetry Archive and my own bookshelves.
So much of any year is flammable,lists of vegetables, partial poems.Orange swirling flame of days,so little is a stone.Quick dance, shuffle of losses and leaves,only the things I didn’t docrackle after the blazing dies. (Naomi Shihab Nye)
How far is far?And how many ways to get there?We walkand walk towards meaningand don’t arrive (Mahmoud Darwish)
much against everyone’s advice
I have decided to live the life
I want to read about and write it
not by visiting the graves of authors (Sam Riviere)
