AND ON THE SEVENTH DAY



God was so pleased with his six days of creation
The seventh day He declared a day of rest
Bound to have some heavenly
Well-deserved rest and recreation

As soon as He woke up
He brewed a cup of java and 
Set up his most comfy Adirondack chair
On his fluffiest favorite cloud

And so on this seventh day
A most magnificent morning unfolded
Watching from every conceivable angle
One glorious sunrise after another

By noon for Sunday brunch
God challenged his angels to make
The tallest fruit salad unimaginable
For a rendez-vous on the Hawaiian islands

The first summer games
Were held that very afternoon
Playful racing with dolphins
And swimming in the seven seas

Then dusk began to fall
All were cordially invited to board
The fabulous celestial party bus
For a ‘round the world premiere trip

Westbound capturing one endless sunset
For hours and hours of a colorful joyride
Ending with a final detour to the north
For a late night aurora borealis show

I love this Line! So wonderfully imaginative! I love the thought of God ordering a ridiculous fruit salad then taking everyone on a bus tour. Well, you would, wouldn’t you?! A fave!

Line, this imaginative write delighted me, especially the way you set God up: "As soon as He woke up He brewed a cup of java and Set up his most comfy Adirondack chair On his fluffiest favorite cloud." And the ending is CLASSIC! I love aurora borealis, it is one of my Pinterest boards.
