And grateful for
The Hawaiian word for thank you is mahalo. Yesterday I had a friend call to talk about her gratitude rock. She carries it in her pocket to remind herself to be thankful for all the beauty in her life and all the wondrous encounters she has. I have another friend who makes a list every Sunday of all the things from the previous week she is thankful for.
I'm thankful you have come to read my poem today. Now that spring is here I feel like there are changes occuring in the universe and I'm so glad we are a part of the changes. So thank you. Today's poem was written especially for you. Your challenge for today is to write your own poem about thankfulness or gratitude. Perhaps you'll want to try an acrostic poem too.
Thank you for stopping by and now I'm off to go rock hunting.
Happy Poetry Friday. For more fun poems today hop over to The Drift Record , Julie Larios is hosting the Poetry Friday Roundup this week. Thanks, Julie, for all your work. Great poetry party!
