NEW YEAR – By ElizaBeth Coira

Can we Love
Without the weight
Of worry
      guilt
          control
            and fury

Can we soar
Without the cage
Of hate
      and fear
Please tell me
Dear

What is it
We’ve been doing
Playing at
Through the years

Though it’s been done
By so many
For so long
As we awake

Today
New choices
Await us

They are
Sun-ripened
Ready
For picking

I think I’ll walk
A while
      wander
Roll around
Bask
In the glow

Of All
New day
New year
Possibilities

Let’s wait
No more
To embrace
Weightless
