A miraculous flow

“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”
Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life

gratitude-3I feel the soft rain
of gratitude
reviving a desolate wilderness,
infusing life into scattered hope.

Too long have I sojourned
on a parched wasteland,
inhabiting discontent.
A sink hole of unconsciousness.
Bitterness spreading across the barrenness.

I’m gulping down living waters
of thankfulness.
Saturating my shriveled
awareness with compassion.
Counting my many blessings.
Drenching myself in praise!

A miraculous flow of appreciation floods
into the reservoir of longing.
Hope springs to life
breaking forth into tributaries,
surging over dry land,
awakening wonderment,
washing away gloom
becoming a torrent
till it finds a massive ocean
of contentment!
