to be thankful

to be thankful for the beautiful flowers
that count their lives by minutes and hours
as in their gentle radiance,
wondering if it all makes sense
be thankful for each breath
you take
because one day it is
the last that you will make
be thankful that in what seems chaos
and disorder,
there really is reason not just
a random marauder
be thankful that you can feel
and ideate
no need to look further,
all that can wait

About Me

My photo
greetings! i have managed to incorporate my eternal woodstock nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga...waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. sketching, watercolor painting,poetry and photography are my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance.
