Poem: A Special Day

A Special Day


is a very special day.

Today we celebrate

sun and rain,

light and dark,

the cycles of life,

the great turning

of the wheel.


Today we celebrate

every leaf

on every tree,

every feather

on every bird,

every drop of water

in every stream.


We celebrate

green growing ones

and winged ones,


and four-leggeds,

all who walk, crawl,

swim, or fly.


We celebrate

each breath of air,

each morsel of food,

each beat of our hearts,

each healthy cell.


We celebrate

the profound miracle

of being alive

in this body

in this moment

on this planet.



like every other day,

is a very special day.
