And so it is... 1/1/11... and this in Tappan, New York...

a day of bright winter sun
sparkling reflections upon the mounds of snow
the scamper of a squirrel upon the tall tree
a birdsong clear in the chilled air
this the first day of 2011
its light, its beauty
its knowing of an eternal spring
the squirrel, the bird
in celebration of this moment present
and I in the embrace of what blessings bring.

HAPPY NEW YEAR this day and all days to follow.

Much much love,

Rose Marie


  1. Happy-Healthy New year to you Rose Marie. And yes, today sparkled and then has given way to clouds which makes me feel so calm and restful - my Mom and Sis, two nephews, daughter and grandson were all here. Our 1/1/11 gathering was loving and delicious with much laughter and promise.AND, yesterday, my other daughter called - to wish me Happy New Year - Hallelujah - I told her I loved her, no matter what. A season's miracle that she called.
    Love to you my friend

  2. Dearest Gail,

    Happy for the love known and shared with your family. When reading of your daughter's call, a smile indeed ... love knows and ever finds its way.

    The best ever to you and yours. A special HUG to your Mom.

    Much love,
    Rose Marie
