A to Z: A is for Arrival

A is for April, a month to bring things anew. It's also the first day of the A to Z challenge and a poem a day challenge. Inspired by poetic asides, here is a couple poems that may or may not start with A:

New Arrival

We went to the restaurant
I spent every year of my life at
yet this time it was like a new arrival
they took out the antique touch
and made it modern

We went to the bakery/cafe
where we hang out nightly
we always get ice cream
but I got in touch with my Arab side
and got kanafa

The sunsets and the sunrises are
new arrivals
knowing the roads, yet it being different
is a new arrival

Meeting an old friend
yet all these changes
meeting new friends
seeming like regular friends

it's a new arrival, a new comfort.
