For the words I read and write
For emotions caught and music playing
For the filaments of peace still extending
For the Paris and the climate agreements
For friends in blogging
For our collective book
For the rain and sun, the earth I walk
For mountain and the sea.
For my family & friends
For work I still can do.
For technology that help us stay together
For proximity and a gentle touch of hands
For wind that tousle hair
For the lack of drought where I’m lucky to live
For my health allowing me the use of bicycle
For my limbs, my feet, my eyes.
For dinners shared
For the joy and sorrows shared
For my muse who steer my hands
For temptations that I fought.
For temptations that I haven’t fought.
For friendship crossing borders of race and gender
For the hardship overcome.
For the challenges, for noise and silence
For the greyzone still remaining
For solidarity with refugees we’ve shown.
For the narrow strips of sanity in a crazy world
For those that doesn’t give in to simplicity
For my breath, for air
10 Minutes of just writing down things to be grateful for when we reach the end of 2015. Maybe a little bit of list poetry of sorts. I know it might not have been 50 items. This is linked to Dawn Landau’s prompt, if you want to do the same, just go there and link.
