western New Year’s will be welcome

if I am moody
this time of year
do not blame the
yellow-rumped warbler
who daily washes
in the bird bath

if I cannot relax
during the holidays
do not blame the
azaleas that bloom
out of season
due to above average heat

The past has left
an emotional trail
of destruction littered
with broken relationships
good intentions and
ugly sweaters

The Daily Post prompts
