Today

“Today”

Today is a day of merriment.
Today is a day of wonder.
Today, the gods of new and old
Emerge together from their chambers of marble
To get a better look at what is going on down under.

Today is a day of ice cream.
Today is a day of laughter.
Today, the leaders of tomorrow
Sit in lawn chairs sipping sloppily concocted lemonade
Dreaming of a time when all is happily ever after.

Today is a day of fortune.
Today is a day of smile.
Today, a weary, lonely beggar
Watches passerby from a rusty bench on 42nd street
And has earned the right to feel worthwhile.

Today is a day of adventure.
Today is a day of motivation.
Today, two ordinary blackbirds
Rendezvous to soar above the heads of human beings
Free from the need of a particular destination.

Today is a day of simplicity.
Today is a day of reflection.
Today, a closeted atheist
Says grace with absolute certainty
That her newborn son has the utmost form of divine protection.

    I really, really like this. I love your writing style in your poems and other posts. If you haven’t already, you should check out the bands The National and The Shins (and you know what, while you’re at it check out Noah and the Whale as well); you may like them.
    Keep writing!
