New and Old

My humble contribution to the end of a year and the start of a new one as part of the Ragtag Community’s prompt of New at https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2022/12/31/rdp-saturday-new/

New trips off my tongue

Eagerly marching forward

But old gets stuck

Buried beneath wrinkles of time

Both anticipate the unexplored

New with hopeful fervor

Old with fearful weariness

It is the story of new and old

A new year begins

While the old ends

One to become, the other a tired has been.
