The Power of Gratitude

A word of thanks for all that I receive,
Yesterday, today and tomorrow too.
Is it so hard to simply say thank you,
Or take a breath to let the heart believe?
Two easy words that never seem enough,
Surrounded by beauty in Nature’s love,
But it is harder to look to the skies above,
When life is tough and the going is rough,
Yet taking the time to reflect thanks then,
Opens the soul so life begins to change,
And our dreams take on a different range,
As we embrace a brief moment of Zen.
This is the power that awakens life
Even when surrounded by naught but strife.

Form: Canadian Sonnet
