Peaceful Gratitude

I am grateful for our blogs with WordPress. It is interesting, through the data provided – and other forms of feedback – to see which poems are read often. And if one poem is read by one person, that is wonderful as well. Sometimes many people may visit, and sometimes one person may visit, and view a few posts. Thank you. With all the data, there is still the wonderful mystery of creativity.

Two poems:

R est
E  ducate
A  dmire
D  ream
I   nspire
N  ew
G  oals

Acrostic poem for READING is one of the most read poems at Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin, which we began in December 2009. “Grace” is a recent poem from the same site.

GRACE

gifts of small moments
when I read and write

in the middle of all
that happens every day

in our worlds
large and small

I am more than content
with what I have
and have achieved

goals revised
and rewritten for now

When my spirit
was overwhelmed within me,
then thou knewest my path.

Psalm 142: 3a (KJV)

peaceful memories

For the WordPress Discover Challenge MEMORY – two poems:

streets I used to travel
to go to Mom’s house
empty stores here and there
with signs of recovery
peaceful memories

*

driving home
on different roads
and streets

these trees are taller

I remember places
that only exist in photos
and memories now

and then
the beauty
of today

*
