Falling Stars And The Year Of Dreams…


(Photo credit: Woq)

The shadows inched closer and I watched the wind walking with the legs of a deer.

What kind of hope lie in wait for the coming year?

I have no idea, said the old man, new year

are best for great ideas.

 Tears of the rainbow has nothing to do with the wishes of an orphan.

I lost a dear friend old man, I said, walking beside the sea of dreams

We all lose people at one time or the other, said the old man

The most important thing is not to lose yourself.

The year has been okay, I mused, wrapping my robes tighter

 Others don’t have it so good.

People have died, dreams extinguished!

Then do something about it, he said and left me

I watched him go and I saw falling stars hitting my little

house beside the lake.

Strange, I sighed

Life is strange indeed, said the wind, dancing with the lake.

I saw the falling stars by my window

I tried to stop them but I couldn’t

How can I help?

Dear friends, it’s been a great year, some dreams go unfulfilled, others need more work but one thing I realise is, it’s never too late. New Years are for fresh ideas, hold your loved ones tighter, tighten up your belt and fill your mind with positive thoughts. Work hard and you’ll see great results. Things don’t always go the way we want sometimes, but that is why the sun ALWAYS rise again.

Don’t give up on yourself!

Happy New Year (in advance) great friends and I love you all!!!

    Reality puts some of our dreams on hold. Frankly, it can be VERY frustrating at times. Anyway, I am always optimistic, so yeah, 2013 could well be the time to unlock those dreams. Happy New Year to you and your family in advance.

    Very well and wise written post – “the most important thing is not to lose yourself”, indeed if we do then it’s just a matter of time so we have lost everything – but it’s never too late, life is (like many other things) waves in unpredictable rhythms – I wish you a wonderful trip on your surfboard across the blue sea called “Twenty-Thirteen” – I’m sure it will be a fantastic trip – because you have the good feeling inside of you – it’s the best possible start … 🙂

    Happy New Year to You and Yours… 🙂
