Below is the poem of the day entitled The Perfect Day which was written by poet Tim Smith.

The Perfect Day

Mist rises from the valley floor Sunshine peeks over the mountain top silhouetting the Coopers Hawk soaring in the southern breeze I sit in my old oak rocking chair drinking my dark black coffee taking it all in. Mornings don't get any finer I am one one with nature. The smell of flapjacks fill the air Then out walks you my heart skips a beat as you smile brighter than the clear blue stream blending in beautifully with the azure sky your caramelized eyes glisten each time you glance my way I can't help but smile for this is the perfect day

    You nailed it bro. A perfect poem for a perfect day. In Africa it is more perfect with a keg of Tombo and a box of Utaba.
