the gift of seasons

FallBouquet 009


the gift of seasons

still having the faith
to keep trying when
we could have stayed
discouraged many times

(though sometimes we need
a rest and can trust
our part of this work
to others for a time)

the miracle of being here

saying our thank yous
to God

and to one another

this day

by Ellen Grace Olinger

This is a poem from August 2012 on this site.
I called that post Sunrise Poem.
