The New Year Opportunity

"The New Year Opportunity"
By:  Adrielle R. Bollin

A brand new slate To start the year
To put forth a goal And forgo all fear

For the storm has past That was yesteryear 
That raging tempest With its lessons so dear
This photo taken by Adrielle R. Bollin
So now we look on To a future that's bright
 Toward new possibilities Born day and night

 Exploring the new While remembering the old
Taking new paths While adventure unfolds
This photo taken by Mitchell D. Bollin
The possibilities are endless, The choices we can make
To be filled with regret, Or to learn from our mistakes
This photo taken by Adrielle R. Bollin
A new horizon is here, To greet the dawn
A New Year is given And is beginning to be drawn

Thank you to all who have taken the time to read, comment, and encourage me this past year!  It has been one of the greatest pleasures of my year, to get to know those of you whose blogs I've had the pleasure of reading as well as to learn of those who have read my blogs and have both commented and remained silent but appreciative.  May all your lives be filled with abundant joy, thanksgiving, peace, love and prosperity in this new year of 2011!  I look forward to challenging myself to be an even better poet, lyricist and photographer in this new year!

Much love to you all,
Adrielle R. Bollin

  3. Dear Adrielle, what a beautiful post, you are such a talented and sensitive young woman.
    I feel very privileged to have gotten to know you as well, you have a way with words that appeal to me very much and I can recognize myself in the emotions you so eloquently and yet with such an ease convey here, in pictures and words.
