The Perfect Day


I watch as the sun crests the horizon,
its golden glow heralds the dawn of a new day.
Beams of light chase the cool night into shadows.
The sky awakens crystal blue, as the morning reveals itself.

The clarity of the day opens a window to my soul.
Summer sun warms mind and body, but my heart lays cold.
The perfect day is comforting but incomplete.

The cool grass under my feet
and the trees surrounding echo a concert of green.
Warm breezes rustle leaves as a soothing accompaniment.
The sun climbs higher leaving the night long forgotten.

The clarity of the day opens a window to my soul.
Summer sun warms mind and body, but my heart lays cold.
The perfect day is comforting but incomplete.

The sun tracks its broad arc across the sky.
Its warmth caresses my body like a blanket.
Gentle breaths of fresh air curl around me as I stand alone.
The beauty of the earth lays at my feet like a carpet.

The clarity of the day opens a window to my soul.
Summer sun warms mind and body, but my heart lays cold.
The perfect day is comforting but incomplete.

Shadows creep across the ground as the sun sinks to meet the trees.
The song of birds echoes amongst the branches.
The sky's blue intensifies as the sun's golden glow dims.
Magnificent hues of orange and red play across the once fluffy white clouds.

The clarity of the day opens a window to my soul.
Summer sun warms mind and body, but my heart lays cold.
The perfect day is comforting but incomplete.

Spread across the evening sky, ever changing colours swirl in a display of light.
Behind me the sky darkens to reveal specs of white.
The pink and purple glow gives way to a dark jewel covered sky.
The stars of cool night provide a steadfast fireworks display that ends the day.

The clarity of the day opens a window to my soul.
Summer sun warms mind and body, but my heart lays cold.
The perfect day is comforting but incomplete.
Without someone to share it with, the day's gift is lost.
