Roses for Mother’s Day by qthomasbower

Look to this day,
for it is life, the very breath of life.

In its brief course lie
all the realities of your existence;

the bliss of growth,
the glory of action,
the splendour of beauty.

For yesterday is only a dream,
and tomorrow is but a vision.

But today, well-lived,
makes every yesterday a dream of happiness,
and every tomorrow
a vision of hope.

Look well, therefore, to this day.

— Kālidāsa
famed playwright and poet from 4th century CE India.

Seems I’m inspired to post this periodically; first in 2009, then again in 2016 as a salutation to the dawn. This is the third time and version.
