Reflected blue (The New Year hues)

I stopped for but a moment
rushing forward
going nowhere
to the shimmer of blue
pooled like tears
to touch the gift
of a piece of sun.
I stopped there then,
the words like echoes
yesterday and times beyond
to touch the heart
of another year
slipping away.
I wondered what had become
of the fire and passion
of endlessly flowing verse
that now slows to peace
like a trickle,
a tenacious drop of water
falling off of the icicle
into a frozen puddle below.
I saw the sun break through,
clouds of visions silently open
to let out just a bit
just enough
to warm the water
as I stood watching
the reflection emerged
shimmering in the light
and it was the same
yet just a little different
and just enough to see the grey
the growth
the smile hidden within
that had forgotten itself
that had blown away perhaps
in the winter wind.
Like the bitter chill surrounding
the sun chases away
and wraps the mind and soul
in warmth,
that comforts with the changes
each day brings forth,
that gives its essence of hope
for yet one more beautiful day
that waits for you and I.
