Thoughts of Thanks

  • READ POEM
    A thank you to the sounds
    More lines from a thank you note... Thanks also for the sounds of children singing in laughter some where unseen. For an injured neighbor able to listen and two silent cats tentative and still. Thanks for soft sunlight and memory of rain for memory of mother alone in her yard. Thanks for a beloved brown shawl sometimes around my shoulder in deepest night.
