Thoughts 4 - My Day Is Today

My mind a treasure chest of thoughts galore,
Myriad facets of nature to joyfully watch,
My sleepy eyes open to the orange glow of the
Morning sun that peeps through my silken curtains;
Million rays of golden light gliding in with new hopes,
Morning glory blooms with a satin touch,
Marigold nods its head with mischievous smile,
Magnificent flowers that dance to the breezy tunes,
Marvelous birds that sing the sweet songs of love,
Monk who walks down the street with a contented smile,
My day is today, to marvel at nature's splendour
My thoughts for the day, so serene and calm,
My time is now, to rejoice the little blessings of life with gratitude
Many thanks for this moment, for I know not the destiny of tomorrow!
