I know you’ll step in
with much sound, laughter and all.
But not everyone will participate.
Try to bring a smile to every face
if you can.
Let the day have its sun
and night the stars.
Let seasons breathe.

Happy New Year to you too…beautiful and creative person. ❤
This is wonderful, Sumana. Be kind. The best advice any year – and any person – can be given.
What a lovely (and gently said) exhortation to the New Year. May it be so! Great firework pic to set the scene, too.
Let the day have its sun and night the stars.
Let seasons breathe. Be kind.
Yes, let us breathe new beginnings for the new year and do our part. Happy New Year to you Sumana and happy hols!
Oh, if only a new year could help us with all that–letting nature be what it is, kindness to all and especially to you! May your creativity thrive. Happy New Year. It’s still 3 hours away here.
I do hope it is kind… especially where it caused so much hurt last year. Happy new year Sumana.
That’s a really touching poem of kindness , beautiful…
This is a timely injunction to the year 2017. let us hope it is kind, but I fear the opposite may be true, so I am practising fortitude.
How we are every day is what counts.. yes..to be kind is the best thing we can be to each other – wishing you much kindness in the new year Sumana
Happy New Year, Sumana.
That’s my hope for 2017 too – that it will be kind to all of is and the rest of the world
yes, be kind. that’s great advice.
have a Happy New year, Sumana!
This is pure poetic wisdom, Sumana. It’s, perhaps, too easy to forget that everyone doesn’t feel the way we do. And in our overseeing we can cause so much pain.
This is such a beautiful and compassionate message. Loved it 🙂
May your New Year be filled with kindness…Thank you, and the same to you,
So poignant and important, with a lot packed into a small space.
Oh Sumana I love the tenderness with which this poem is penned❤️ your heart shines through this one.. my favorite from you this year!❤️
This is so timely! Maybe kindness above all
Such a beautiful poem and thoughts my friend! I do hope this year is kind. Hugs!
The personification is done beautifully here and so warmly expresses the sentiments of the season. All the best to you and yours in 2017, Sumana
Well put. Yes, let us be kind. Happy New Year to you.
Heres wishing you a brilliant 2017!
A lovely piece of writing, Sumana. 🙂 If poets ruled the world we’d all be kind to each other. Nothing boring would get done but we’d be kind to each other.
Happy New Year Sumana. ! Hoping 2017 will bring a little kindness to all of us.
Smiles are definitely the way to go…you cannot give too many smiles!
What lovely thoughts Sumana. If only we all followed your advice, the world would change for the better. But I’ll do my best to follow your directive. Thank you.
Inspiring words for sure!
You last line is only two words, but they are the most important words of all.
