Poem: Let my day be filled with love

As dawn is gaily chimed
In the windpipes of dutiful cocks,
Let my mind resonant soar
With the color filling the fields
And today be ushered with hope
As brightness catches on the sky.
So let my day, everyday, be filled with love.

While the fields wake to the tune of day
Piped up by lightheaded robins,
Let the work my hands find to do
Be not like the grind of rickety mills.
But let my fingers use the same fluid tempo
That conducts the nectar-sodden butterfly dances in the wind.
So let my day, everyday, be filled with love.

Even the morning glory is teased
By fingering streaks of warm light;
So let me have the warmth of friends,
The joy of serving and the delight of kisses;
I wish not to have to stand alone
Before I can truly assert myself.
So let my day, everyday, be filled with love.

Like the mouthful of a giraffe
That has it’s head in a bough of sweet berries,
Let my day be filled with words of inspiration
Not forced silent like a mouth laded with gravel.
If my guts rumble as I chew the cud at evening,
Let it be of meditations – sweet and juicy.
So let my day, everyday, be filled with love.

Lovely piece of poetry! manages to combines a rich medley of visual and sound cues/appeals to achieve its overall liberating effect even as it is aspirational.Good piece!
