We often ask for divine gifts
eyelids sealed and clasped fists, we dare
requests or wishes via prayer
while missing beauty that exists
surrounding us, we must cherish
like tangerine hue of sky’s dawn
lyrics from your favorite song
warm embrace of one who loves you
the flavor of the sweetest fruit
or image drawn with child’s crayon

this is lovely… a perfect message to unplug to this evening, to draw from as this day fades into next. Poignant for each day, but especially today, the anniversary of 9/11. May we all be grateful for life.
Thanks for your kind words. Yes, miracles surround us. This is what makes life beautiful.
This is a lovely piece and reminder to cherish the things we already have in our midst. A lesson often overlooked. I love that you included the style along with your piece. Luv, peace, and an abundance of blessings. DrkTearz
Beautiful! I dont think we count our blessings or appreciate the simple things in life, as much as we should. Magnificent choice of illustration too 🙂
