When first light of Sun snaps away all winter blues,
On New Year’s Day,
A year’s gone by yet again,
Exciting they seem, daring to go,
When world is painted in all vibrant hues,
Like freshly moulded clay,
Time’s loss, time’s gain,
Start of an inning,
Like bloom of flower, deliberately slow,
While mojo of New year slip and lose,
Jubilation stopping to stay,
Like excited feign,
Steadily crumbles light of candle’s glow,
While the days in calendar choose,
To tilt, dance, delightfully sway,
And end of year reign,
Like at the start of year, let at the end flow and not lie low.

Thoughts :- Often the excitement at the start of the year, doesn’t continue till its end. I wish for continued excitement and energy till the end of the year and not just wish the year to get over.
