Poem Series: This Day

This day

Easier than most

Refreshing the soul

And reminding me of


What can be

Is today.

Maybe not tomorrow,

But I rejoice in

Today's ease and ability.

Storms can't last forever

The peace that overtake after violent winds destroy

Feels like a glass of cool water

A perfect summer day

A sweet tune on a piano

Or beholding children play


I wonder

Will this contentment stay?

Seeing the world in rosy hue

And thinking to myself

Thank you, God, for today.


I wrote this poem in February 2022. My husband and I were visiting his sister and brother-in-law in San Diego and I had to pause to take in the beauty of the moment. It touches on normalcy, loss, joy, hope, contentment, and peace.
