Poem: A Day's Regard


Quote of the day:

An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
-Henry David Thoreau


Long night has come and gone
Peeking sunrise over the horizon
Birds singing their morning song
Audibly and in perfect unison.

Not wanting to be outdone
Humans take to the streets in a run
Much too early even for some
Hungover from some Jamaican rum.

A bountiful day it appears for some
For others, a merry-go round to escape from
Alas, the day will soon succumb
As it shrivels to life's beating drum.



Have a great week ahead!

Peace.Love.Light*

  2. I can't say I've ever had Jamaican rum. Even so, after reading this, I'm still feeling thirsty for some...

    Good song choice.
