Gratitude Diary Day 116 / 365

a slight nudge was it
or perhaps a gentle kick
every so shyly
before turning around in
the warmth of his mother’s womb

Gratitude Diary Day 115 / 365

an old man cleaning
clumsily chases a rogue
balloon caught in a stray draft
a little girl waits
chubby arms outstretched, eyes all
on her unlikely hero

Gratitude Diary Day 106 / 365

cool April breeze and
grey clouds filled with false promise
planting seeds of hope

Gratitude Diary Day 104 / 365

rainbow of colours
flowers desperate attempts to
bring life to white walls
with fumes as fragrances and
oil the elixir of life

Gratitude Diary Day 73 / 365

salty sunflower seeds and giggles
random work conversations
laughter winning over
much futile sighing
and wishing for
what was it
