Glowing with gratitude

Glowing with gratitude

Not much can compare

to the sweet                     satisfaction of a

life well lived, a moment well spent.

Gratitude melts

                                      in my mouth                        like a treat.

I have no words, but

                                 a medley of feelings that sing        from the heart.

It brings me           closer to myself.

When the crisp cool breeze

                 tickles the tiny hairs behind my ears.

And I find myself


at deep hues           fallen from

                                    rainbows in the skies.

I inhale,       exhale,                           and let it simmer.

There is joy here,

                                   and I intend to keep it.
