As Fireworks Fly

I step softly
as the fireworks fly
I step on the shore
heaven knows
how deep the sea
how I've held my breath
how I've surrendered
I can hear you breathe
my words are small
my eyes talk more
my eyes are wiser
they hold the stars
I wish
they wish that
every grace befall us all
warm love
childlike laughter
peace backlit with joy

Why that might be the perfect New Year's poem. I like your new picture, too. Happy, healthy 2006, Liz to you and your family and readers. Including me, what the heck.

Doug,
Why thank you, sir.
It's a good thing you didn't leave yourself out. I wouldn't have liked you picking on a friend of mine like that.
Smiles and Happy New Year,
Liz
