Grateful Psalm



For blood-warming and mellow music to the heart;

for smooth milk, blue cheese, mint-tea, Turkish delight;

for sea-waves clapping and dancing in the morning light;

on the valiant mountain for all the depth and height;

for every cat-tail, warbler’s wing, all nature’s might;

for every shiny memory and moment that is star-bright

as well as for every thunderstorm and starless night;

for every breath, smile, wink of and eye that is worth the fight;

for every good in the bad, joy in the sad, sane in the mad, beauty in the sight;

for every quiet corner, misty street, pretty violet and wind-kite;

thank you for my loved ones and quirky enemies, dear God;

thank you for my whole messy, sassy, chaotic, awesome life!
