Ringing in the New Year – A Tanka

Welcome to my contribution to my weekly Tanka challenge. This week, I kept the prompt words of ‘last and few.’ Both words have many connotations and can change the meaning of your Tanka poetry in many ways. By the way, please link your Tanka to my post found here.

Ron and I have so much to be thankful for this year. My heart swells at the outpouring of love and friendship from my blogging community. Thank you all for making this a memorable year for me.

Don’s forget, great excitement lies just around the corner… On January 3, 2017, The Heart Stone Chronicles: The Swamp Fairy will finally be published. I can hardly contain my excitement! 😀

I would like to take this time to wish you peace and happiness.

The last hours tarry –

between the Yule and New Year,

time is suspended.

When Auld Lang Syne sweetly sings

hope recharges our spirits.

Happy New Year everyone! ❤
