Bubble of Thanks #poetry #Thanksgiving


“Two bubbles found they had rainbows on their curves.
They flickered out saying:
“It was worth being a bubble, just to have held that rainbow thirty seconds.”

Carl Sandburg (quote from Goodreads)

bubble-1-430x322

It was unexplainable

that moment when I touched you

a giddy colorful rainbow

it was like giggles and hugs

all wrapped in one

It was unexplainable

that walk across the desert

my feet never touched the hot sand

you were firmly holding my hand

and I made it

It was unexplainable

the light in the sky

rays touched my skin

warming from within

and I knew you were near

It was unexplainable

when I learned you had died

taken all the bad things I had done

my heart you’d already won

and I cried

It was unexplainable

that moment when you touched me

a giddy colorful bubble

full of  giggles and hugs

in the sun we would run

The Poets United  prompt for today at Midweek Motif is Gratitude. This is a week (in the US) to really think about what we are grateful for. I am grateful for my God, family and friends!!!

  “Love each other as I have loved you.  Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”

John 15:12

Part In Peace: Is Day Before Us?

bSarah Fuller Flower Adams (1805-48)

Part in peace: is day before us?

Praise His Name for life and light;

Are the shadows lengthening o’er us?

Bless His care Who guards the night.

Part in peace: with deep thanksgiving,

Rendering, as we homeward tread,

Gracious service to the living,

Tranquil memory to the dead.

Part in peace: such are the praises

God our Maker loveth best;

Human hearts to heavenly rest.

Such the worship that upraises

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.
