Heavenly Day


The sky announced the sun
on a day when the sun’s arrival
was enough.

The clouds curtseyed and then
fell away.

The dogwood branches swayed as
with divine provocation.

The poppies pondered providence
the afternoon light, and alliteration.

Lovers and children were devoting their hours
to the wind and newly sprung gardens.

Coins were tossed into fountains devoted
to wishes, on a day so bright surely all
desires were fulfilled.

All day long, the sun lingered as if
a love sick suitor hesitant to say goodbye
to the now blushing sky.

Sadly, the sun learned you can’t roll
back the hours or the day’s resolve
to fade into night.

All you can do is abide the darkness
and await the promise of another spring
struck, soulful blue day.

  1. First of all, cool graphic.:)

    Second, you know I adore you and everything you write. This is no exception! I love the idealism of it, but it’s more the mere fancy because at the end, there’s realism, too, which is (in my opinion) the best kind of fiction.

      1. Now that’s just preposterous!
        You are below me! Therefore…night sweetie! See you when you recover consciousness!

  3. Heavenly indeed. β™‘
    Sunrise awakens the souls of nature’s many faces, in silent smiles of wonder.
    Sunset ease the burdens of the day, to reflect and rest the heart’s and mind’s with peace. Xo
