River of Stones

January 2, 2011

This month, I’m participating in River of Stones, a January challenge to write small observational poems.  For January 1, 2011, I will start with an observation of my not-too-exciting New Year celebration.

Staring at the clock
as it turns from
11:59 to 12:00
from yesterday to today
from 2010 to 2011,
I hear your soft snore
even before I hear
fireworks, and I whisper,
“Happy New Year.”
