Awe See-saw

The color of today's task?
Beet red!

...among other colours­čŹé

I saw the day that was 
slip softly from my sight
A glint, like dandelion gauze 
wafting into the night

I see the day that is 
unfold the darkened lea
A counterpane of promises 
and unpenned poetry

Ah, soon the day I see 
will be the day I saw
A flicker of flowers and tea 
and task-to-do, and awe-

...filled-gratitude for He 
who tends the gates of air
And watches over you and me 
with kind and faithful care

Nothing is better for a man than that he should eat and drink, 
and that his soul should enjoy good in his labor. 
This also, I saw, was from the hand of God.
