2011's Setting Sun


it was in the glamour of the setting sun
colors calming
light enlivening
a year coming to an end

she opened to absorb all the colors of a passing year
spheres of insight rose within and around her
2012 a new beginning 

she will bring her heart fully
as she steps gently 
yet deeply
wings rising
vision flowing
and growing
for peace love and freedom
for all
welcome 2012
