New Year's Day
RaynesEnd

In the middle, at the beginning,
 1
somewhere between the heat and the
 2
frozen (in time)...it was summer
 3
again at midnight, all warmth
 4
and skin, then the depths
 5
of winter as you watched me go,
 6
but we started...yes, love, we
 7
began. It's 24 degrees and falling
 8
and I'm still falling
 9
and you always catch
 10
my eye, like the plastic glasses
 11
caught champagne while smoke
 12
drifted up like a prayer;
 13
we were dizzy with it,
 14
enraptured and overflowing,
 15
fireworks bursting - all light
 16
and heat and reminders
 17
to live in the moment,
 18
to cherish the time,
 19
to savor and burst
 20
and renew.
