New Year’s recipe …… it’s love

start with a bowl of forgiving
add a heap of compassion
and a dash
of reality
—-for if you are not aware
than how can you care—–

stir together
kindness and tolerance
creating a mix of empathy
gently fold this into the bowl

add equal amounts of
hope
happiness
courage
and faith
blending till completely combined

bring to a simmer
smell the aromatic magic

fill your glass
and raise it on this sunset
to a new year
with this elixir
full of
understanding
positivity
gratitude
and joy

it’s love
