One Deep Breath- The New Year Haiku

Time is a gift

hope remains

live life

Prompt: The New Year

What does the New Year mean to you? Maybe you think of peace or renewal? It may be a time to reflect on the past year's joys and sorrows and/or focus on the future... or perhaps it is a time to contemplate the passage of time itself? Maybe you will notice the "firsts" of the New Year... or you might choose to write a traditional "positive" haiku to begin the year.

One of our ODB members, Helen of Yellow Rose, needs our good thoughts and prayers. Thank you!

Beautiful poem Tammy. Hope this is a wonderful year for you and yours! BTW, I clicked on the link for Helen and it took me to a site that was definitely not Helen! :)
