Sunny Sunday Morning: A Poem

Sunny Sunday Morning: A Poem

by Denis Kabi

 

It’s a sunny Sunday morning.

Everything is bright and lively.

The coo of the morning dove permeates the air.

Globules of dew sparkle on the blades of green grass,

and on the green leaves of various plants,

and on the petals of multi-coloured flowers.

Bees buzz busily about,

to and from their hives,

collecting nectar and storing it,

while their legs carry and spread pollen to various plants.

Other insects buzz around as well,

spending their time wisely.

Birds beat their wings and flit around,

eager to catch something to eat,

and they sing noisily while doing so.

There’s not a cloud in the sky,

but acres upon acres upon acres

of delightful light blue.

Everywhere the wind blows

it ruffles the leaves and blades and petals of plants

and makes tree trunks and branches swing from side to side

as if doing a little jig.

Nature sings, nature dances,

nature raises its hands

in praise of its Creator!

 

It’s a sunny Sunday morning.

Everything is bright and lively.

The coo of the morning dove permeates the air.

The house of worship is packed to capacity

with eager worshippers eager to hear the life-giving Word;

not an inch of pew is uncovered.

Voices of the choir harmonize

with those of the rest of the congregation,

singing “Haleluyia! Haleluyia! Haleluyia!”

as they all clap enthusiastically

and sway from side to side.

It’s so packed in the house

that there’s hardly any room for more worshippers,

and so the latecomers stand outside,

eagerly waiting for the next service.

All three services are packed with eager worshippers

eager to hear the life-giving Word;

not an inch of pew is uncovered.

Voices of the choir harmonize

with those of the rest of the congregation,

singing, “Haleluyia! Haleluyia! Haleluyia!”

as they all clap enthusiastically

and sway from side to side.

His children sing, His children dance,

His children raise their hands,

in praise of their Creator!

This is the day the LORD has made;

we will rejoice and be glad in it.
