(Wellington, New Zealand)

Morning Eyes Gently Awake

Morning eyes gently awake
First taste of life on my breath
Slowly ease the living shake
Others freeze to stubborn death

Another sunrise livens my heart
Gently climbing up the horizon
First words from my tongue’s art
Prayers polish the tiniest diamond

In thier hands daily transformations
From night darkness dull coal
Like minded birth the Godly nations
Help others through actions drum roll

No morning coffee or poached eggs
Sizzling sausages over toasted bread
Hunger fed instead by planning legs
Serve and help the true religion trend

No bank account vast enough to hold
Sum of good deeds the way to heaven
Passion to serve without a fixed mold
His vacant cross-answered the question

Green acts of kindness in a world gone bare
When 'I' replaces 'US' and me 'You'
In giving all we shall grow to care
No matter how dull it seems our hue

Vivid living colours lined inside each
Snowbells start the end of winter’s bleach
Honeysuckle spring life to honey bees each
Warm-hearted sunflowers bent humble to teach

Thanksgiving from nature lessons in outreach
Look no further than to the sunflower’s reach

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
