CELEBRATION

My granddog, Chloe,
who cant believe the cupcake
coming at her


The sun comes up every morning,
and the trees unfurl their arms 
and sway in celebration.
The miracle of those big green waves,
rolling in, rolling out,
is the definition of everness.
And we?
Our eyes open, amazed,
at the miracle of
another day of loving.
We look to the sky,
where the great birds are wheeling.
Our hearts swell
in gratitude, in hopefulness,
in reverence,
in one long moment
of “Thank You!”

Each morning,
a celebration.
Each evening,
thankfulness,
and rest.




Chloe's sister, Cali, a rescue from
a kill shelter in California, who celebrates
her new life, with gratitude, every day.
As do I.


For Sumana's prompt: Celebration at Midweek Motif.
