I'm Grateful For... (SOLS #15)

This picture was taken on my drive into work this morning.
As I stopped at a traffic light, I looked up at the sky, and started thinking about some of the things I'm grateful for.

I'm grateful for the morning sky, 
Of streaks of gold,
And sapphire blue.

I'm grateful for the early sounds,
Of Wippoorwills singing,
barely visible among the trees.

I'm grateful for another chance
To make a difference, to teach,
To learn, to discover.

I'm grateful to God,
For family, for friends, for me,
And for the chance, just to be....


  1. How wonderful that you stopped to take a picture to preserve what you were seeing. I'm glad you shared it with us. Morning sunrises are the best.

    Thanks for the gorgeous poem too. Sounds like a lot to be grateful for.

    1. Yes, there's a lot to be grateful for when you stop and think about it. I do love sunrises and sunsets:)
