Alphabet of Gratitude

Someone suggested keeping an ongoing
gratitude list this month. I strung mine together
and would attempt tuning it
to lower range notes because it feels like
that would be appropriate...However
I do not have a keyboard- Happy Thanksgiving!

Ask ample abundance, best breath of beauty
combining compassion and courtesy
for delivering divine devotion
essential essences of empathy,
flowers of faith and forgiveness,
grateful growth and giving heartfelt hope and healing
Instruments of instinctual inspiration
and joy, joy, joy-

kneeling, kindness and knowing, living love and light
making the most of miracles,
noticing noble nighttime
opening opportunities often
perfection of possible promises
quite,quiet questions

reflecting, reading and reaching
sober in singing sunlight,
thankful thoughtful touches
urging the unknown and unexpected
weaving wonderful and wise
in youthful yeses of yearning,
with zoo's of zest from zero !
