Welcome to January’s Write Here With Me link-up.

Here is my response to the prompt Fresh:

 

The New Year arrives at my doorstep in a fresh new suit, looking great

but carrying a case

heavy with the weight of expectations

 

And as soon as she arrives I take the case and hold on to it

And in lieu of a greeting I start shouting

About all the things I will do for this year

 

I am going to be better

I am going to be fitter and stronger and skinnier, you’ll see!

I am going to give this up and stop doing that and

I am going to do everything right

everything 

and in return

this year is going to be

the best ever

 

and then my arms start to ache

from holding onto that case.

 

So, instead, when the New Year comes strolling up my path

I will take the heavy case from her and put it aside.

 

I will welcome her with a smile.

Come in I will say

Let’s dance.

  1. New Years does come with expectation and baggage, especially when recovering from the previous year. My post is more about my “word” rather than the “fresh” prompt you have offered but I look forward to joining in next month for your writing prompt. Happy New Year Alana x

    • Thanks for linking up Lisa. Your post still falls into the parameters of the prompt as it is a *fresh* new year after all. I love the word you have chosen for the year and wish you all the very best with your plans. Happy New Year to you too xx
