galloped up into the morning air
a long way
whispering, I imagine,
to the same mystery
I try to speak to
down here. ...
if I could
carry a message of thanks
to the doors of the clouds.
I don't know whether it would be
of the or the mind. I know
it's the poem I have yet to make
There are so many ways to give thanks - poets do so with their words, birds perhaps in their own way with their songs, and children with their giggling runs. Writing, singing, laughing - these are but just three ways to live the day in gratitude. I imagine there are thousands of ways. Here are some of mine:
Looking up at the stars and smiling
Bowing to the trees
Kissing the ground
Hugging a person
Identifying a bird species
Biking instead of driving the car
Writing this blog
What are some of your ways of giving thanks?
