Reflection: Henry Peters

Here we sit upon a late autumn afternoon
promising winter will be soon
when approaching darkness at five
you thank your lucky stars to be alive.
Even the midnight hour finds its charm
as we parise life without even an alarm
so true do these days pass on by
with the ones you love and can reply
twenty-four-seven around the clock
the Creator gives food for all sought
in a kaleidoscope of beautiful colours for you
and for me as we celebrate all we do.
