New Year's Eve

Every year past Decembers
Cold and windy months
I created moment by moment

revelries for others

While all the while
As the euphoria of countdown settles
I was dreaming to be
with loved ones

This year I do not want the fanfare
I long for the quiet moment
Of deep content and giddy happiness

bubbling inside


For the magpie tales

Happy New Year, friends and fellow travelers of the blogosphere !
I shall no longer be like the candle in the wind, creating glamour and radiance for others but not for those closest to my heart.


  1. Lovely words, especially at the end.

  2. Thank you Anthony. Happy new Year to you!

  3. Ninot Ma'am,
    It must be a big relief! No more on your toes doing things for others. NY Eve is for you to savour and for you to do your own thing.How nice!


  4. Dear Sir Hanks,
    Yes! I shall savour it....and yet why am I here starting on a new book project entitled RATU?

    Happy New Year!

    1. Two years later I am still working on RATU...

  5. I feel your bubbles!

    Happy New Year

  6. Love the beautiful truth in your New Year wishes Ninotaziz!! Happy New Year to you beautiful friend! :-)

  7. Dear Helen,
    Thank you for all your support and encouragement throughout the year.

    Happy New Year to you too!

  8. Dear dear Carrie,
    I hope you received something in the mail!

    Happy New Year !

  9. I thought I did
    Obviously I didn't
    So let me do it
    Before I forget
    Wish you and your loved ones a happy and prosperous new year.

  10. Dear dear Pakcik and Makcik
    Happy New Year to all at Al-Manar too!
    Regards from Melaka
