Happy Chinese New Year 2015

Wishing everybody a very Happy Chinese New Year 2015. On the second day of the new lunar calendar, I decided to write a haiku series in line with the new year theme.

The year 2014 was full of trials and tribulations, with floods, missing aeroplanes, planes shot down and etc. I hope the Year of the Goat will bring better times ahead for one and all.

I.    Lunar New Year

Welcome, dear New Year

Year of the Goat; glad tidings

Hopes and dreams renewed

II.    Renewed hopes

Fresh optimism

For a better year ahead

Floods and tears, goodbye

III.    Abundance

Challenging year, past

Aspiring for abundance

Sufficient for all

IV.    Opportunities

Heralding the new

Prospects for personal growth

And development

V.     Prosperity

Year of good fortune

Revived world economy

Turn it back around

VI.     Peace and harmony

Do not be derailed

By those who wish to shatter

Fragile harmony
