Grateful For Every Season

Today’s blazing sun tells me
Yesterday’s clouds were a fluffy comforter
I am grateful for what was

I never won a blue ribbon
Yellow goes more with my décor
I am grateful for less than best

Fossils discovered in the earth
Makes one’s existence worth it after all these years
I am grateful for longsuffering

I venture aimlessly out into deep dark wood
The light of the moon leads me safely home
I am grateful for night’s window

Washed up from the sea
Driftwood and me adapt to the shore
I am grateful I never sank too deep

Leave the grasslands alone
Let the elk and antelope play
I am grateful for where I am today

I am on a potter’s wheel
I hope I am red clay, Iron rich and strong
And grateful my whole life long


Linking with Linda Kruschke PaintChip Poetry.

The theme for today is I am grateful and I’m challenging you to use all seven of these paint chips words and phrases: blazing sun, blue ribbon, fossil, red clay, grassland, deep dark wood, and driftwood. Bonus points if you can write your poem in couplets.

    There are many things to be grateful for. I especially can relate to “I am grateful for less than best” and yet never sinking too deep.
