Poetry: The Year Not Yet Begun By Neil Daswani

2 min read

Neil Daswani’s poem talks about the New Year on the threshold and the old one that has passed away a few hours ago.

This year too, shall come to an end
like all the years that’ve gone before
the days and weeks that we spent
pursuing things that mattered more

the earth returns to where it once was
resumes its free wheelies around the sun
we reset, resolve and perhaps take pause
to be different in the year not yet begun


About the Poet

Neil Daswani is a naturalized Singaporean of Indian origin. Over the past thirty-one years he has lived and worked in Singapore, Hong Kong and the Middle East. This international background finds expression in his poetry. He is a banker by day and a poet by night who now writes poetry prolifically. His poetry covers a myriad of themes ranging from nature and mythology, high school physics and history, to humour and the ebb and flow of love and relationships.

The year 2020 has been a milestone year for him wherein he has published three separate volumes of poetry: Why Now? followed by Seen & Felt and Redshift.
