New Year--By Dr. Upma A. Sharma--India

New Year

When new year resolutions at the eve
shatter in shimmer of next day's sunrise,
Setting sun's aurora if could forgive
Promises unkept waiting to fulfil,
beauty of dawn takes up as a surprise,
Grudges of past lost to desires that chill.

End up in dreams to be unveiled in time,
Some golden moments we fondly cherished,
in few years of life that were utmost prime,
Achievements studded in crown of glory
still far was content to be embellished,
New year nurtures hope, another story.

When new year resolutions at the eve
end up in dreams to be unveiled in time.

Passion for poetry can turn anyone crazy, Dr. Upma A. Sharma has proved this so well. She finds time from her busy schedule to satiate her appetite for words, words that rhyme with her heart. She feels that nothing in this world happens without a reason and so is poetry. This indeed is a purposeful expression of emotions and thoughts that are well oxygenated before putting them into circulation, and positive words certainly are a way to serenity.
