attitude of gratitude

Weekend writing challenge on “gratitude” with Sammi Cox   

For undulations of the hills
for desert, daisies, daffodils
for love’s sweet longing family fills
God give us grateful hearts.

For grass to grow, mow everywhere
for pizza, pickles, peach and pear
for every breath we breathe of air
God give us grateful hearts.

For hiking, biking mountain steep
for swimming, surfing oceans deep
for every day our lives you keep
God give us grateful hearts.

For puppies, kittens, goldfish, frogs
for horses, cows, and baconed hogs
for reading books and writing blogs
God give us grateful hearts.

Although

it may seem

customary for

a girl to prefer

a dozen roses,

he decided to

defy tradition

by offering her

a lovely chain

of fresh daisies.

His unique gift

gently struck

a heart’s chord

which brought

forward a burst

of affection as

she stepped

close enough

to exchange a

petaled kiss.
