To Spend A Day

To spend a day,
a day that’s real
without the need
where I can feel,
no want, no greed.

Without the greed
there will be time
to breathe the air
with scents of thyme,
and time to share.

With time to share
I’ll hold your hand
we’ll touch the sky
and make a stand,
to love, then sigh.

To spend a day
to love and sigh
the only need,
just you and I,
no want, no greed.

  1. Love the rhythm and the clever link-up between the stanzas.

  2. A day of love is a a truly lovely day for sure! This is lovely writing Julian!

  3. That sounds like a perfect day... but too often we would be tempted to fill the time with useless matters pulling us back to the greed.

  4. Nicely interwoven- like a lace of love.

  5. Ah, what a beautiful dream. May it come true!

  6. Love the rhythm and rhyme, there is beauty when there is no want and greed.

  7. Julian, how lovely to see you! Hello to you in Guernsey! This poem holds the secret of happiness. It is really that profound.

  8. This is really lovely. So freeing, to love without need or greed. So genuine just to be.

  9. What a mantra and testament to simply living.

  10. Very nice! I like the interlocking between the stanzas.

  11. Beautiful.

  12. That sounds like an ideal kind of day!! Wishing you many of these in your lifetime.
