Grace


I thank you for this life,
To experience a chance,
To feel the hidden wonders,
At more than just a glance.

I thank you for this body,
Enclosed this beating heart,
In rhythm with the universe,
Till ending from the start.

I thank you for this endless soul,
Who’s traveled back through time,
And now this present moment,
Many more still left to climb.

I thank you for this Mother Earth,
Who nurtures us with care,
Her beauty for all eyes to see,
Take time to smell her air.

I thank you for another day,
To breathe another breath,
Sacred is this mortal life,
Every moment until death.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
