HAPPY SUNDAY MY DESKTOP NEXUS FAMILY OF FRIENDS..
MAKE A WISH AND ALL WILL COME TRUE.....ALWAYS CARMEN.


BY Alex Hunter May 2016

sunrise, sunset
sunrise, sunset
birds fly, land, and fret
doctors mend, treat and heal
write wake, write and feel.

sunrise, sunset
the fish swims while the parrot pecks,
the bees nestle back into their hives
as the moon lifts, and the sun dives.

sunrise, sunset
the diaries cease to forget
when all go back to rest
with the sunrise, sunset.

so as the babies mumble and the children cry,
the world lives and nature thrives.
the mother yawns and resets
with the sunrise and the sunset.

my first poem ever
