Morning Eyes Gently Awake
My morning eyes gently awake
First taste of life on my breath,
Ease me into the living earthquake
While others succumb to death.
Another sunrise livens my heart
To the beat of a new horizon.
Optimism forms my tongue's art,
My life shines like a bright diamond.
I witness my daily transformations
From night darkness as dull as coal,
To like-minded who birth Godly nations
By extending helping hands, God's drum roll.
Besides offering after church service coffee or poached eggs
Or sizzling sausages over toasted whole meal bread,
Is to fight hunger whenever it exists with travelling legs
And reach out, and never give up to help, is a godly trend.
No bank account is fat enough to hold
Sum of good deeds to buy a pass to heaven.
Passion to serve is not based on a fixed mould,
His vacant cross-answered that question.
Acts of kindness in a world gone bare,
When 'I' replaces 'US' and me for 'You'
By giving and our will to care and share
Despite how dull the task seems or its hue.
Living colours announce the dawn of each spring,
And snowbells replace death mask and its winter's bleach.
Honeysuckle to bees like love symbol in a wedding ring,
Sunflowers in the fields are but nature's way to outreach.
My poem's corporate image rebranded to: "God's Thanksgiving"
And Thanksgiving should not be for the few, once in a year treat.
Lets us have no more death resulting from hunger for the living,
And Thanksgiving should not be about all you can eat!
