Poem - Evening Reflection

Author: Jennifer Lunn Published: 4th November 2011 09:12

A mum and daughter at Stowe

As a day comes to an end we often reach a cross-over point when the activities of the day have been completed and time now becomes your own. You may not have had much free time that day, perhaps you have spent the day working with others on some project, or perhaps you have been involved in a number of activities all of them making demands on you.

This poem reflect that moment in time when you have just realised that all of the activities that you had to do that day have been completed and that time is now your own. That the day has gone from being totally demanding to now giving you permission to take the pace as you choose.

Pausing to look around, you realise that the sun is about to set, so you go and make yourself a cup of tea, find a seat giving a view of the sinking sun and reflect upon the day as you watch the sun set

This poem was written for that scenario

Evening Reflection

The stillness of the moment, the quieting of the day
The sun on the horizon, the night now on its way
A moment of reflection, to look upon the view
To see what has left this day, and what it is that’s new

Some memories we will welcome, a happy moment we have seen
While others will be sad to know, reflecting on what has been
Some changes we controlled ourselves, others we played no part
Some will mark the end of things, others will mark the start

Some memories will be new to us, some will be no more
Some will touch us lightly, others will hit the core
All of them will change us, each in a different way
The person who we are now, was not here yesterday

In this stillness of the moment, in this changing of the light
A chance to see what went wrong, a chance to see what’s right
A chance to see what has changed, to see what we have sown
A chance to hope that in this day, some wisdom may have grown
