Today

Hartlepool Sunflowers

There are days that sparkle
Stand alone;
Splendid displays
Of our Lord’s
Infinite ways

Skies uncommonly blue
Clouds unreal
We want to reach out
Stretch our arms
To feel

Air so pure
Our lungs hungrily inhale
Bird’s songs so melodic
All sounds soon pale

Flowers too perfect
Their fragrance
Intoxicating;
Causing tears to form
For beauty
So invigorating

Those days
Occur perhaps more than we know
We may just be too preoccupied
To appreciate their glow

What a gift
Free it is!
Surrounding us
That is why
We must live

Every day
From sunrise to sunset
Whispering a prayer of thanks
Let us not ever –
Forget.
