Thursday, November 28, 2013 - An Acrostic Poem

The silence of the morning
has a centered stillness all its own.
As the sun breaks the horizon,
nature greets the day with birdsong,
kindling a gladness of spirit
soaring above the worries of the past.
Gaining a softer perspective,
I sit quiet
vacating my mind of what was,
inviting the grace of what is,
nestled safe and comfortable and
grateful for this day.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, Lettie . . . thanks for letting me share in "the grace of what is". Your artistry with words always makes me smile.

Thank you Andrea... I am happy we share grace in so many forms. And thank you too for sharing me on Facebook... I've sworn off of it in even though so many repeatedly request that I return. It's humbling to know that my words go places I don't tread. :)

Thank you! Andrea Dawn is a dear heart for sharing it. I'm glad you liked it. :)

Thanks Eva! It was a lovely day (my grandmother's roll recipe came out perfect!) and I hope to stretch out the gratefulness well into the weekend. :) As always, so grateful for our connections...
