Inspired by Gratitude I
~ by Laurel Regan
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
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:
a fresh, new day
Now it’s your turn!
