Feliz 2017 – Happy New Year!

January 1, 2017

Midnight – New Year’s Day:
exploding fiery globes
in all directions.

Three-sixty degrees:
everywhere we look we see
scintillating light.

Six cruise ships counted
in Funchal harbour: each one
keeps sounding its horn.

We sip sparkling wine
and gaze on the city lights
that spread up the hill:

Funchal, Madeira!
The first day of a new year;
I am rich with hope.

Wishing a Happy New Year to all my readers. Or – in Portuguese – Feliz 2017!
