Here is the Verse First Prompt:

WALK IN GRATITUDE

Today’s is another simple prompt. Take a walk. On that walk, observe your surroundings with an eye of gratitude. When you return to your writing-table, quickly write down your observations, then refine them; burn away the dross to reveal a poem that will imbue your readers with gratitude, too.
Look out
upon this bare world
cold, snow etched horizon
life stripped by season’s storm
where hides the sun?
*
 I sit in reflection
scanning my forest
I walk in this dream
never to awaken
to cold cruelty again
*
I watch life
it smiles at me
So Thankful
to have lived
to see this day
fall's creatures
To each of you  I wish hope for a time of Thanksgiving. Enjoy time to spend in warmth with friends and family.
