Join me this week of Thanksgiving . . . as I focus on gratitude.
by Andrea Potos
Sometimes it just stuns you
like an arrow flung from some angel’s wing.
Sometimes it hastily scribbles
a list in the air: black coffee,
thick new books,
your pillow’s cool underside,
the quirky family you married into.
It is content with so little really;
even the ink of your pen along
the watery lines of your dimestore notebook
could be a swiftly moving prayer.
Thanks so much for being here. For reading what I have to say, and for sharing your thoughts with me.
May you find much to be grateful for today . . . and every day.
I discovered this poem in How to Love the World: Poems of Gratitude and Hope, edited by James Crews, published by Storey Publishing, 2021. More information about the poet, Andrea Potos, can be found here.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Kym
