Inspired by Gratitude I
~ by Laurel Regan

(Pssst… new here? Welcome to Alphabet Salad! For background on how and why I got involved in both NaPoWriMo and the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, check out this post… and, if you’d like to catch up on my progress to date, my challenge posts are tagged with Poetry from A to Z. Glad you stopped by, and hope you’ll return!)

for opening my curtains, morning-drowsy
surprised into joy by the first robin of spring
plump, red-breasted, proud

for an abundance of friendship

for the love and trust of a fluffy cat
settled in my arms
asleep, dream-twitching

for artists creating beauty

for the first tentative lilac buds
emerging, pale green, on the tips of each branch
a promise of fragrance-laden purple blooms

for colour, music, textures, taste

for the hope of all things new:
new birth
new life
a fresh, new day

thank you

Now it’s your turn!
