Poem: Each Day

By: James G. Piatt

eachday

The top of the pepper
Trees glisten
With a scarlet glow from
Vanishing prayers,
The Mission’s bell spire
Gleams with a holy flame,
Dim umbra’s exist below.

Oh beautiful summer day,
What will you bring and
Leave us today?
Will it be
Life,
Death,
Happiness,
Sadness…
Souls filled with
Grief,
Joy?

Which of your messages
Will we include in our
Memories at the end of
This day?
Will it be ones of
Sorrow,
Delight,
Agony,
Peacefulness?

But for all its unknowns,
Each day
Is ever beautiful,
For it is always
Filled with life,
And
Enumerable possibilities.
