a new day by George Fairchild

a new day

Acrylic on paper, 12x12 in.

With my college chemistry teaching job coming up in about one week, this will probably be my last painting and poem for a while, as I must concentrate on my “real world” duties…sigh… I will try to get on PIL whenever I can to enjoy and comment on the beautiful artwork of the many dear friends whom I have met here this past summer…you have all made this an amazing start to my 4-month old “career” as an artist and poet…your support and kindness is so greatly appreciated!!! -GHPF

A New Day

Today is a new day…what will you do with it?
A blank canvas that’s waiting to be painted…
A song whose notes have yet to be written…
Make this new day a special one…

Today is a day that comes only once…
Rejoice and celebrate each magical moment…
Dance with great joy…sing songs of love…
Treasure each minute as if it were golden…

Find reasons to smile…to laugh…to hug…
Learn a new word …start a new hobby…
Satisfy your soul and help make it soar…
This new day’s a gift…please use it wisely…

Today is a new day…it’s yours for the taking…
Its image…its song…its history awaits you…
We know not how many more new days we’ll have,
So please make it special, precious and memorable.
