Gratitude is what I find



Gratitude is what I find,
With friends  with words of kind soft voices
Of blessings in disguise guiding me like angels
Showing me of right and wrong directions.
Gratitude is what I find, with an editor
Mentoring me with words of sentences to
Paragraphs and more.
Gratitude,  is what I find with a dance teacher
Guiding me as if a five year old starting to walk
And flowing gently from walking to dancing
In circles gently making expressions with eyes and hands
And feet.
Gratitude is what I find in a father who makes her daughter laugh
And jokes with her as if she is still a child at heart.
Gratitude is what I find with a husband taking care of his children
With so much love and giving his wife the greatest shelter and comfort
She needs.
Gratitude is what I find with a mother who is happy to see her grandchildren
And cooks for them with such affection.
Gratitude is what I find with a brother who speaks to his sister
Straight forward and speaks his mind quite calmly and helps her to be strong.
Gratitude is what I find in friends encouraging a women, to be the best
At what ever she is and helping her to have her confidence in her talents.
Gratitude is what I find with friends singing to her with such lovely soft voice,
Or laughing with her making jokes.
Gratitude is what I find with friends letting her write about them in her novel, guiding her when
Needed, listening to her when needed.

An Ocean's View


I picture it in my dreams.

The waves and the cool breeze

 Make me feel at ease.

I hear the subtle sound  of the ocean in my mind.

Its no surprise with me dreaming and laying there

by its landslide.

There's an ocean in years I haven't seen,

Its multicolored colors all mixed inside.

Like a Kaleidoscope radiant blue

As eyes of a beauty in her twentie's

Laying by her lover feeling the ocean waves at shore.

There's an ocean in years I haven't seen where I feel

a silence that's deep within. I am in complete balance as I feel the

waves reach my feet beneath

There's an ocean in years I haven't seen.

I imagine it in my dreams.
