My thoughts were full of words and pictures this morning, and I quickly wrote them down before they fell out of my brain into oblivion. Another gift of a Thursday; it was just Monday!

So here’s some thoughts on life for a Thursday morning.

scurries by
May falls into

mornings into night
again and again

Clouds drift by
and disappear in a
Do clouds have an
expiry date?

I stared at the sunflower
I had planted
one cold spring morning

A seed among many
But she survived
and grew, tall
Her yellow crown as big
as a plate

I talked to her
each night as I
watered the parched ground
and she was just there
part of my landscape
colouring it with
beauty and grace.

I reminded myself to
to hold this moment
to drink in
her beauty..

But I forgot to capture
the moment with my camera
And yesterday
she drooped
her head bowed

and soon I know
where she once stood
will only be a memory
in my mind.

Teach us to savour our days
O God
Our yesterdays pile up

And eternity seems closer
That great unknown
when time as we know it
will be
no more.
