THANKFUL FOR BEING THANKFUL

I’m thankful for
the dawn’s breath,
its smile refreshes my
docility,
I am thankful
for its warm nightingale
song,
I am thankful
for the choral medley
of the sun’s orchestra,
I am thankful
I didn’t die
but live to die
one day at a time,
i am thankful,
for love,
its Judas hands found me
and i m thankful
I would not be denied
by a peter,
I am thankful
I am breathing
fresh lilies from untamed flowers,
I am thankful for this chance,
to spit on death’s door,
and thankful I can sing epitaphs to its inane decrees,
I am thankful for my sunflower,
thankful,
I can rise each morning with her in my mind’s cocoon,
a place of refuge for twain lovers,
I am thankful I can write ,
misery’s a cruel master,
time is a wise student,
I am thankful, for a new swan song will birth,
from much heart bed,
and I am thankful to my muse,
for the profound imbuement to pen
this epistle of wan thank ful Ness,
for its better being thankful ,
than being a Jonah ,
sold by lesser devils to ocean depths,
I am thankful ,
for being thankful,
let the stars bear testimony,
I live to die ,
and die to mirth,
yet I am thankful
in all things Thankful, regardless.
