We are hovering
Suspended in the gap
between what was
and what is yet to be

Not to be let down
too soon
Still slightly warmed
by dwindling 
candle flames

Not resolution ready
though snippets steal in
Imaginations opening to
thoughts of
a new year

Not yet
Not yet

Leave us adrift
in this innocuous space
Not for naught
this respite
awaiting the next chapter
