Happy New Year’s Eve 2023 俳句


🎇 Happy New Year’s Eve! 🎆
SO GLAD TO LEAVE 2022
and to
WELCOME 2023 !!!!
A Healthy & Happy New Year
to everyone!!
!

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day’;
begin it well and serenely,
with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
This new day is too dear, with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.

        ― Ralph Waldo Emerson, Collected Poems and Translations

And now let us believe in a long year that is given to us, new, untouched,
full of things that have never been, full of work that has never been done,
full of tasks, claims, and demands; and let us see that we learn
to take it without letting fall too much of what it has to bestow
upon those who demand of it necessary, serious, and great things.

― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke, 1892-1910

And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.

― Roald Dahl, The Minpins
