A Medley Year

                         A reflection of the bygone year.










The year has come and gone,

It’s certainly not been forlorn;

Work successes, few failures,

New colleagues and adieus;

Birthdays and  funerals,

Anniversaries and ceremonies; ::

Appreciations and criticisms, ::

          Compliments and complaints;      :: ;;

Score card green and some red,

Goals met and some abandoned; ::

Brisk walks and snuggly slumbers,  ::

          Strict diets, and many indulgences;        :: ;;

Rising ambitions and some withdrawals, :

Clear thoughts, with a little murkiness;

Relaxing holidays and somber Sundays,

Grand festivals and few lonely dinners;

Lots of poetry and some discarded prose,

Plenty of jokes and sarcastic pokes;

Magical moments, cherishable comments,

Also bundled with some under currents;

Some good, some bad, some love, some hate,

        All is fair in life, overall in a great state;       ::

                  Another brand new year is here,           :: :;

                      I’m all set to embrace it without any fear!          ::  :: ;;


This is the 50th post on my blog. Thanks to all my dear readers who have been the motivation for me to keep this alive.

It’s possible to at this point look forward to my future. Thanks a lot so much for your specialized and results-oriented guide.
