Spotless, white snow covers
every inch of earth in sight,
embellished with faint shades of grey
and light trails of footsteps.
“See you! Have a good break!”
The setting sunlight spills over
a blanket of white, leaving crystals
of angel tears shining in the distance.
“Happy holidays. I’ll see you next year!”
When a dash of gold emerges,
airplanes mark an evanescent trail
carved across the gradient sky;
When a mountain of violet clouds hang
over silhouettes of trees, and the sky
speaks in a thousand colors;
When a flock of birds, flying south, flap
a fever orange under the horizon,
and escape this frozen world --
I think of all the remarkable memories,
each unique and delicate
intertwined into an exquisite image of time.
I think of all the amazing people
I was able to cherish and remember,
like the imprints of hues along the skyline.
I will be forever
for everyone I met and befriended;
for all the challenges and achievements;
for the marvelous view I see --
and for this wonderful 2022
you shared with me.
