New beginnings

For RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #101 Fresh&Wind, I wrote something about new beginnings. It is about hope and looking forward to a better tomorrow. We all need positivity and hope to help us get through the days, months and years. 🙂


New beginnings

Fresh new beginnings
Fly by on the winds of change
To scale greater heights

Let’s look forward to a better tomorrow, and actively and collectively work towards making  today better than yesterday, and tomorrow better than today. If everybody does a little good, no matter how small, it will contribute directly or indirectly towards the well-being of oneself and the collective well-being of others in the long term. This is because doing something good not only benefits the recipient of the good deed, but it also makes us feel good about ourselves. 😀


Fresh aspirations

With the New Year, comes new beginnings, new experiences, and new challenges. Let’s welcome them with open arms, and with the passing of each challenge, grow to be better and wiser, as well as more resourceful and resilient. Wishing everybody an exciting year ahead.

Time & New

For this week’s Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge #40, the word prompts are ‘time’ and ‘new’. I decided to write something on hopefulness and optimism. 🙂
