Love more, when it is hardest to love.
Show compassion, always.
Be kind when deserved or not.
Be patient, when you are at the end of your rope.
Smile, when you are saddest.
Pray when you are at your lowest.
Thank God when you are at your highest.

celebration, joy, new year, spring,
Persian Haiku 2
What a gorgeous view!
You and the flower garden,
I'm the butterfly.
Your eyes, the ocean;
The ocean colors your eyes.
Your hair is the wave.
Moon on the ocean,
Your face is the reflection.
Always be alone.
I live with my heart,
All flowers are beautiful,
I love daffodils.
What a discussion,
I had with all my flowers.
Their breath smells nice.
Note: Iranians/Persians Celebrate today, the first day of spring as their new year. We call this day Norooz or Nowruz, it translates as New Day. From my family to yours, Norooz Mobarak ....Happy New Year.

Your love is real
the love you feel.
Your love is great
the love you make.
Your records are on fire
its your desire.
Take me out tonight
and go wild and crazy,
or be fat and lazy.
So I played some Doors
and saw some whores.
So I said goodbye
and they all must die, fool.
So dig my guts
and eat my brain
and then go insane.
Care I love it
so forget it, Punk!

nature, new year,
New Year’s Eve
I need to feel the trade winds blow
To know they have my heart in tow,
Here in the twilight of this hour
I feel the grandeur of God’s power.
The Sun, a ball of golden fire
Rises with my heart’s desire
That this New Year will offer love
As Sol begins to rise above.
How wonderful, the winter sky—
With mist filled clouds that float on by.
Sweet birds of beauty on the wing,
Portends the gifts New Year will bring.

inspirationalold, old, new year,
The ending of an old week
the beginning of a new month
and the memories of an old hour.
The dawning of a new day
the setting of an old sun
and the rising of a new star.
A perfect year has begun
your dreams lay not afar.
Start it with a smile
and make this coming year
a year worthwhile!
Hey people...soooo sorry I wasn't here to read all of your lovely poems in a long while,
I've been really busy with school....I wish you all a happy new year and I hope it brings
lots more wonderful poetry as well....I missed you all!....:).......love always, Maryam

The New Year (Cornish Sonnet)
The clock struck midnight; she came in
attired in silky flowing dress
that matched her youthful glowing skin.
She clutched an hourglass in her hand
that showed the seconds evanesce
with every grain of trickling sand.
I put my bow to violin
and played for her a melody;
I hoped her tender heart to win.
Champagne was popped and glasses raised
but she cared not for revelry...
into my eyes she deeply gazed.
The clock struck midnight; she came in.
I put my bow to violin.

Happy New Year
H aving shelter and the means to keep ourselves
A live doesn’t seem like much to ask, yet many
P eople strive just to pay the rent and somehow keep their
P oor kids fed. Whatever can we say to those who
Y earn for just a bed?
N ow I sit and wonder why we simply don’t
E volve! All the problems that exist, only
W e can solve.
Y es, a New Year’s coming, and I hope we will
E mploy helpfulness for those in need. Let’s bring them love
A nd joy! In this world of woe, we need to be a
R ay of light, glowing, ever glowing though the world seem dark as night.

To you who brought the light to day
giving life to every season
if on this eve I may humbly pray
for Grace to know my reason
Hold fast my hand and bear my soul
as I rise and meet my future lot
loose fears that face the morrows roll
from will my faith has taught
Stay near my God, guide every step
as I seek the fortune that awaits
bless the road I traverse next
hold me close with your embrace
If in this year you call me home
leave love in all the hearts I've known

I know not where
the morning light leadeth me,
nor who, as I led, went before
I know not if a sea, a woodland,
or a mountain ahead to climb –
and, thus, my way to explore
For what I may see, may hear,
God, alone, knows true vision,
His worlds of sound, and where
our ultimate journeys are bound
As I must faithfully seek –
if to redeem my soul; for this
earth its Lost and Found....

Friends: Poetry Soupers,
Brethren of literary troopers,
I pray God to do my best
to wish us all a Christmas blest,
And if our loves ideas and bents
are not the same,
Perhaps we can meditate on
from whence we came.
At least in that light be together,
As Birds of a poetic feather.
I extend to you an olive branch
carried by peaceful Dove,
And wish you
Mercy ,Wisdom and Love.
We pray you have, Poetry Soupers
A joyous Christmas and happy New Year
May God bless All His literary troopers.

god, mom, new year, new years day,
I welcome 2019, I'm glad it's here.
I hope it will be an excellent year.
Many years ago on every New Year's Day, Mom cooked hog jowls and black eyed peas.
But I didn't like those meals very much, I wasn't pleased.
Sadly, I now spend New Year days alone because Mom is deceased.
I certainly hope that the year 2019 will be a year of prosperity and peace.
God has given me another year to live and for that, he deserves my praise.
I will love, praise and worship The Lord for the remainder of my days.
I hope that 2019 will be a good year for others and myself.
And I wish everybody a year of happiness and good health.

love, philosophy, visionary, day, love,
Love is my passion
Love is my creed
Love is my touchstone
Love is all that I need.
Without love there is no reason
for each new day, new year, new season.
From the day we are born
Till the day we depart
Love is there buried deep in our hearts.
So starting today, lets make a pact
That love will decide the way that we act.
Give love to your neighbors, brother and kin
And then maybe more love will start to come in.

life, metaphor, new year,
This light has dimmed among the stars
Flickering from up above seen from afar
With a heart crushed by an asteroid
Crumbling into pieces falling to the ground
Let the earth swallow them up and go on
Growing life within sprouting a new one
Tasting the new waters from the rain above
Letting the sun give the soul warmth and free love
Let not the fall crumble these leaves
Let not the winter be cold and freeze
Let the spring bring a newness of life
Let the summer travel without strife
Cast your sorrows away starting a new day
Place your faith up above and find love
A never ending Summer, Winter, Spring and Fall
A new life given to all.

new year, new years day,
Happy New Year, friends of the net
Your words uplift my soul
I love you though we’ve never met
Your presence makes me whole
Tied by a common bond
Of you all heart’s grown fond
With cape of soul search donned
Love you, my dear
Happy New Year

food, holiday, life, new year,
If it were not for the pork and black eyed peas
My husband would not be eating this meal with me
I love my pork and sauerkraut for our New Year good
Hubbie hates kraut and would take bad luck that is
just the way he feels
I will have the kraut and him the black eyed peas
Then he will share in the good luck meal with me

EPIPHANY - Acrostic
They came from the East, the three wise men,
Following a star that Prophesied a King,
A Shepherd of Israel Immanuel his name, in a
Stable in Bethlehem Precious gifts and adoration.
'I'd like to worship!', Herod declared.
Until in a dream the Astrologers were warned.
God’s gift of love for New Year, as foretold,
is Christ the heart of Yuletide and light of the world.

Drops of crystal memory
Where love filled her mind
Joyous as the supple wind
Silent as the new days dawn

Childhood memories of Christmases past
At this time of year a spell is cast
Pretty lights flash, causing feelings of cheer
A season that brings friends and family near
Musical tributes in the form of a song
Decorated stores with their lines oh so long
Sharing smiles and laughter with all those we pass
Giving gifts filled with love and toasting a glass
Sending holiday wishes to all who are dear
Merry Christmas to all and a Happy New Year!

Six to #20 Gold I have to share,
no incidence, no burns, thanks...
Whistles blow, fountains glow,
pop'n sounds, entire sky all aglow
I love those colors, high an low
trails eched onto my retina
inspired me to let ya know
Now you close both eyes
in pitch dark, what a surprise
for you to see, right there
darkness, absolutely anywhere
beautiful trails of lights in motion
