The time is near

To wrap up yet

Another year

To open


To better cheer

So stale old fogs

Can slowly clear

And fresh

New hopes

Take a Moment AtaraKatz

Climb up life’s

Tallest peaks.

Let the view

Hike your breath

Up a click.

Pause and be.

Hold and see.

There’s no moment


More prodigal

Than this.

Spill the beans

On what is

And never

Should’ve made

You know

And others


Have lived.

Find the balance


Private stashes

Of sorrow

And the tender joys

To be had

In remembering

They slacked their thirst

As the hypothesis of plenty

Sprawled below them,

Undulating hope.

Let your mind

Pull up stakes

From its old

Dusty space.

Let your heart


To a wider

Warm place.

Open eyes

To new shores.

Plant ideas

Expand more.
