Mingle New Year’s Eve With Good Friends

Mingle New Year’s Eve …

Mingle New Year’s Eve

Many people will mingle New Year’s Eve,
Good friends, good food, and good wine will party,
Or beer, what ever drink suits your fancy,
Celebration, food, and revelers hearty.

Some will stand outside in freezing cold,
Or some on a summer night down under,
To wait for the ball to drop from up high,
Or watch bright fireworks sounding like thunder.

Dance with their beloved in grand ball rooms,
Or attend smaller parties across town,
Friends will meet at local clubs and all sing,
Auld Lang Syne as New Year’s slowly comes down.

They all will take a full cup o’ kindness,
Just for the sake of old times, days bygone,
All those flames of old loves extinguished,
And never once will anyone reflect on.

Just before the midnight strikes lovers hug,
Take the last dance for that lingering kiss,
Whistles will blow, bells will chyme, to mark time,
As love is expressed true in total bliss.

As for me, eve in comfort I’ll spend,
In warm pajamas, slippers, a good book,
And mingle quietly with my best friend,
Silence, relaxing in my little nook.

In the silence I listen to the voice
Of my soul, and refllect on the year passed,
I look upon the path I took by choice,
To know what was right for me, what will last.

I will offer up grateful thanks, with love,
For all I have been given in this life,
And when I gaze at shining stars above,
I will know I have been truly blessed.

Mingle New Year’s Eve With Good Friends

A blessed and Happy New Year to all.

I have always liked to write. It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles for The Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am a freelance writer for Fiverr. I am currently an author on HubPages, a member/author of the Maven Coalition, and Senior Editor and an author for The Creative Exiles. Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader. I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.
