New Year’s Day

Stopped by the lake just to sit for a while
finally my swirling head stops pounding
and my racing thoughts begin to rest
blueberry bagel, warm coffee
instead of sadness, i feel still
like this lake water, just sitting there
free of ripples, waves
no ups, no downs
still like this big tree
with no leaves but still standing
if only the weather was warmer
i would have taken a walk
but its ok, i dont mind beginning this year
with a poem in the car.
