No Ordinary Days

Just an ordinary day.  Are there any

ordinary days?

I think they’re all Special.

Each one shines like the jewel it is.

Rubies today.

Sapphires tomorrow.

Yesterday was a green emerald.

Deeper blue was not found anywhere.

Into the earth the lake dove.

Light ceased to exist.

Silence abated to the beating of

my heart.

I was alive, deep & dark within

the depths of silence.

My heart told me so.

I believed it.

It was my friend for a change,

it seemed.

When the whole world conspires

against you, you need a friend

on your side,

Or maybe you have to face it

alone.

Alone and ordinary.  You & the

day.  It’s what you got, it’s

what you say.

Say nice things about what

you got because that was it.

The day won’t ever come again.

Be glad that you got something

out of it.
