Today Poems: 3 / 500

Birthday Blessings

Rating: 4.9

The sun got out of bed
Swam across the ocean
Just to shine on you today

The wind climbed mountains
Endured dusty deserts
Just to blow on you today

The birds organized their orchestra
Traveled to nearby trees
Just to serenade you today

The rain descended high heavens
Bowed at your feet
Just to refresh you today

I join all of nature in wishing you
A blessed birthday today

Howard, i really like this one. i think it's better than A Kiss. i gave this one a 9. I've never heard the sun described like that, ...very original. the mark of a great poet. and yet you didn't have to go all super-wordy with it. you just gave it a playful, creative spin on how the sun gets to us. a great poet and say a lot by saying very little. that what you did here, perfectly. and sometimes a poem needs to be long, don't get me wrong there either... this poem also gives the reader the feeling of how lucky anyone is, just to wake up and experience all the little things in a day we can take for granted...birds singing, the sun coming up, etc. thanks for sharing this with us! ! ! -RQ-
