I am a writer of poetry and fiction. I especially love flash fiction. My name is Ruby, and I live in Southern Illinois. I am a retired R.N.

Adios twenty-fourteen, hello twenty-fifteen

Adios old year

Twenty-fifteen arrival

Corks popping open

Singing Auld Lang Syne

Glasses tinkling, ting-ting-ting

Dancing rhythem and blues

A fun filled evening with friends

Happy New Year, smiles

      Hello Genna. You're never too late dear. Writing Senyu poetry is just counting syllables, 5-7-5 in a line, you can have as many lines you choose, no rhyming required, it's fun, try it. Thank you...

      I'm so sorry I'm late, dear Ruby, but we've been away. Happy New Year! I am hopeless when it comes to writing Senyru...I wisely leave this to the experts like Ruby Jean. :-) Up ++ and shared.

      Seems the New Year always starts out with "corks popping" and "fun filled"....may your year be full of corks popping and lots of fun!

      Voted up and interesting.
