May 11, 2021 || Daily Thought & Prayer


Sinking sun at close of day

Busy leaves dance randomly

Whisper breeze, branches sway

Flying birds are tucked away

Cool still air under quiet spell

Serves steadiness of mind to pray

Raising heart and offering flower

Heralds the evening vesper hour

Lit lamp on sacred altars stand

Chanting matches mood at hand

Day’s deeds held as bouquet sweet

To lay at Lord’s eternal feet

Someday our sun will go to sleep

Our boat will sink into the deep

Mourn not as your vessel lies

For we shall see a new sunrise


O Lord, reveal Yourself to me in those auspicious times of day and night. Let me surrender my little boat completely to You as the sun yields to the beauty of evening.
