Morning in Little Boats

Little Boats of the Morning © Manan sheel (author)

Morning
has brought its messages
in little boats -
Some carry
golden sunlight,
Some carry
colorful flowers

Morning
has brought wonders -
Sharp colors of colorful birds,
Patterns of butterflies,
Cries from a million creatures,

And a freshness that will exhaust
soon —
More mornings will come,
more boats will arrive,
Carrying all that is lovely,
and fresh, and beautiful

Take these boats
in your cupped hands,
drink your fill
of the gold in the light,
of the colors in the flowers,
of the music in the birds —

These are, and will be
for you the next day,
These are, and will remain,

Drink, O poet, O lover, O painter,
O common man, Drink,
for these golden gifts are there,
they will remain, but who knows,
whether or not
you will remain!
