On life's blessings




each morning, 
I count my blessings:
sun, wind, night 

~0~0

ink from my black pen
rise like bubbles in my wine,
spicy tale of life       

~0~0

words cut out from page,
foam with salty bitterness,
birthing a novel

 ~0~0

each evening,
I count my blessings:
moon, stars,day

  23. Counting our blessings make us appreciate life more and more, and in turn, for those who are in the depths of despair begin to become more alive - step by step!!! Thank you for sharing a beautiful sequence. Day 15 ~~ Survived to Live!
