i trace the moon's face with ink

darkness & starlight

- a stunning flower, a pearl-

thank you moon

i gather the blue from the sky,

the unburdened flights of gulls & 

serenity of murmuring tides-

thank you lake

i click & tap on black keyboards

my hands are busy bees

hopping & gliding along excel sheets-

thank you work colleagues

i read the words of dead poets

as yellow daffodils rise & bloom (again)                     

as birdsongs fill the air (again)     

thank you garden

  9. Hi Grace, it's been a while since I've read your work. I am glad that I was able to read this one. Thank you for hosting. Your Black Keyboard and the Dead Poets rang bells here. This little 13 inch Dell is really slow coming around, it was Mrs. Jim's and she was disgusted with it. We do most of our computer work with the smart phones. My son gave me his computer because he did a lot of work in the dark or poorly lit areas and needed one with 'lighted keyboards'. I compose a lot with the old S8 Galaxy smart phone, more likely than not on the edge of the bed, waking or going to sleep. I started today's that way.
    Dead Poets, made me as you wished while writing, think of the classics. I like them also.

  10. Gratitude is a sustaining thing in these times. You bring it to life here on the page, Grace.

  11. Thank you, Grace, for reminding us to be grateful for what we have. Absolutely beautiful.

  12. AHHHHHH ... glad I saved you to read last ... thankful too. A lovely poem, Grace.

  13. From Georgina Navasola- So lovely to catch up and read your words. So elegant and concise. I thank your garden too. And you! Yes, there is so much to be grateful for.

  17. It's important to remember to thank the garden.

  18. I love the structure of this poem and the gathering of parts. Our hands are busy as bees looking for the pollen.
