Gestalt and the New Year

Gestalt and the New Year

Sweep out twenty twenty-one with a mental broom.
Don’t let it be a harbinger of dissent and of doom.
Accept a new beginning. Set out looking for the light.
Don’t rate the whole dinner by your initial bite.

Life is a varied banquet of bitter, sweet and salt.
Those who succeed best at life fall in with its Gestalt.
We must season what is in our heads with what is in our hearts.
The whole of anything, it’s true, is greater than its parts.

 

Prompt words today are light, harbinger, beginning, dissent and dinner. The illustration was made using LunaPic. Start the year out right and try it out. It’s free!!! I like using the Art editor.

          Well, I just read your comment and had forgotten what you were commenting on so scrolled up and read the poem and I suddenly realized I had written it not to “preach to” others but to remind myself. So, I’m comforting myself and listening. Maybe that is usually why we write. Or at least why I do.

    Someone left a comment and I didn’t know which poem she was referring to, so I scrolled up and read this:

    And I realized it was really good advice to myself!
