I lit these lights in the darkness tonight
In another season, we would still have sunlight
We would have warm air and full gardens
But now it’s the New Year and lights sparkle in the cold and darkness,
It’s time to reflect and plan for new things.
I very much hope 2016 is a year of peace in the world
I wish 2016 would bring food and happiness for everyone.
For me – I’m beginning to plan my gardens
I have a nice stack of catalogs, circles here and there, a growing list of partially made plans
By the warm glow of candlelight,
I’m imagining a bountiful new season.
I hope 2016 is bountiful for all.
