New Year

The last day of the year
Passes by silently
Without a tear
Without a cheer
The hidden world

At the gate,
All heads turned towards the TV monitors
Watching a football game

Except for me
Not interested in sports
Reading my book
Listening to the background christmas music
Like a blind man among a crowd of people

Which made me think
What do the blind see?
And the deaf hear?
What do the mute sing?

Way back in school
My teacher said

"Everyday, meditate in front of a lamp
Till when you close your eyes
You can see the flame"

For a long time I confused the phenomenon
With Imagination and Skill

But today I realized
That she was talking about
The Greeting Card

I don't know what it weathered
I don't know when it came
But the wishes inside were still warm!
