Really Thankful


“If you are

really thankful,

what do you do?

You share.”


W. Clement Stone


Elfje:         (Cinquain)



give out

from the heart

to anyone in need





migration begun

springs harbinger of new birth

first robin sighting




songbirds welcome the morning light
the sun chases the chilled morning dew
butterflies move with an erratic flight
the strong coffee tastes like witches brew
breakfast a porridge of curds and whey
God’s design begins another day

the pencil recalls many happy mornings
drawing  images from a time long past
recalling troubles when we ignored mothers warnings
cherishing happy moments that cannot be surpassed
enjoying today, a future memory
having an attitude to bring about reverie

time slows the mind and body
moments recollected, sorted by feelings
winter mornings warmed by a hot toddy
summer splashes punctuated by squealings
the fortunate remember a successful relationship
treasuring what was an everlasting courtship

even though the imagination was just pretending
the truth could never write a better ending



ME and the Boss
