Gratitude Diary Day 136 / 365

soft relief of rain
musty smell of earth as dust
calms, settles, nestles
into unseen cracks and trees
sway to welcome Ramadan

Gratitude Diary Day 57 & 58 / 365

evenings in solitude


a spattering of
cold raindrops from a blue sky
turned a gorgeous gray

Gratitude Diary Day 45 / 365

fond memories of
those who’ve moved on too
soon for all of us

rest in peace
Mrs. Parker


I ate four mangoes SO4-2
I had three cups of tea SO3-2
and Sanjay is a donkey S-2

Gratitude Diary Day 43 / 365

phone calls and on holds
drained credit, quick recharges
and topic hopping
a muddle of things to say
and someone to say them to

Gratitude Diary Day 20 / 365

quiet time to build
flimsy paper temples for
fragile hearts to pray
