V-Day sucks

Everywhere I look these days I see red and overstuffed candy hearts, which can mean only one thing in February : Hallmark holiday… I mean Valentine’s Day!

I’ll be totally honest, I hate this shallow and tacky holiday but anyway I wish you all a happy one.

Today I’ll spare you my bad poetry, but tomorrow you will not be so lucky.

New Year’s Day Hangover

 

Here we are. It’s day one of 2011. My first thought this morning just out of bed was «where did I put the advil». My head is so foggy and hurt. Last night, I only had one sip of Champagne, so I wonder if it’s possible that I’m suffering from drinking too much soda. I want to sleep the day away, but it generally isn’t a good idea to follow.

I have no idea what I’ll be doing this afternoon. Probably relaxing, enjoying the “newness” of the year.

This first day should mean changes, new beginnings and new poems. That will be tomorrow’s task, when my hangover will fade.

2011 has started like the old one has ended.

New Year’s Eve, It’s just another night out

 

Tonight is the last night of the year.

What comes to mind when I mention New Year’s Eve ?

Party favors, dancing, kisses at the stroke of midnight, countdown…

 

But to me, it’s just another night out,

only more crowded, expensive and loud.

So, I prefer to stay at home.

 

We are supposed to have fun and be happy tonight.

But not me, I have mixed feelings.

It’s sad to see the end of something.

On the other hand, I’m excited because it’s the beginning of a new cycle.

I’m looking back to the past and looking forward to the days to come.

 

And before I sign off, I’d like to make a toast :

 

The New Year is about to start

It’s time for bittersweet reflection

saying goodbye to the past.

It’s a time for new hopes,

new dreams,

and new aspirations.

There is a shift time.

Enter the new year

with an open mind.

 

Happy New Year! May 2011 be the Best Year Ever.
