A Gift From Heaven

A GIFT FROM HEAVEN

Walking
With loved ones
Or close friends
And talking

Sometimes you don’t
Need anything more
Beautiful surroundings
An added bonus

A gift from Heaven

No Ill Wind: Tanka

NO ILL WIND

I feel gratitude
For all of those who loved me
Also those who spurned
For though painful it taught me
The foolishness of craving

Happy Thanksgiving

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

We’re not all Americans though
On the other hand
On the other hand
Gratitude is always in season
Given we’re all fingers of one hand
On the other hand
On the other hand
It isn’t rooted in slavery and genocide either
On the other hand
On the other hand
We breathe in, we breathe out, we breathe on

Appreciated (30d)

APPRECIATED

Kindly words
Never come amiss
Both hearts are
Uplifted
Let us ensure they never
Go out of fashion

Old Lovers: Four By Six

OLD LOVERS

That curious rhythm
Stitched us to its branchings
Caught up in its weaving
Gladly surrendering

Nature II

NATURE II

Both creatures and plants
From ants to elephants
Ginormous or minute
Beauty abounds

Beauty abounds wherever
Whenever we choose
Once given due attention
– Okay sometimes patience

But always attitude, attitude
Birth, growth, blooming and death
No need of any artificial grooming
Simple appreciation, gratitude

Crepuscule

CREPUSCULE

Silence and small sounds
Nestle like peas in a pod
Sharing is good – Thanks

Procession

And this one is for Teodora.

From The Silence

From the silence … arose …

A Rose
…..
…..
Enough

Let us rest in peace

And silence

Promiscuity

PROMISCUITY

Many have a favourite from among the seasons
And each proponent has of course their reasons

To be matchless some aver a vernal evening’s moon
While others find it’s Summer makes them swoon
Some folk will only fall for Autumn’s ripe delights
Supreme for some is snuggling up on Winter’s nights

But why not embrace every new season and learn
To enthrone it as if a passionate lover in its turn
Become more open, adopt a polygamous attitude
And receive its gifts with heartfelt joy and gratitude
