New Year's Eve 2014

out of a year
of extremes
and countless
lessons learned


new days wait
on the other side
of a year expired


share the hour
and a glass
in a toast
with friends alive
& those who've passed


begin and end
the year with a smile
bookend laughs
at the in-between


the last hours
fell with snow
in cold abandon

These are micropoems originally posted on Twitter while out for New Year's Eve 2014. For convenience, I've let them fall together in this post.
