All I Want For 2019 is

December 28, 2018

PROMPT: 2019

1 half-ton of literature with that treasured book smell
2 buckets of new glossy-paged notebooks, smooth ink pens
1 gallon of crashing sea waves to sooth me to rest 
4 quarts of palm trees to remind me
half a bushel of reunited friends crying at the airport 
2 cups full of road trips-in the dark, day-long, hour-short, month-stretches
a couple hundred grams of imperfect and eventual, adjustment
10 lumps of endurance
3 tablespoons of lifting hysterical laughter to sweeten, and humour, to weather through it all
a dollop of healthy realism
13 milliliters of tears for perspective and relief
1 teaspoon of the past interacting with the future
3 dozen sprinkles of fresh, crisp, mountain and city air
2 dashes of hopeful, wise optimism
multiple pinches of decision, of decisiveness
a liberal dusting of new freckles to accept
1 drizzle of extra freedom to be at peace, and pet more cats
a finishing spray of steel to fortify
