Poem of the Month

By Minx Boren

yesterday

sometime

between the washing and drying of sheets

I remembered to be grateful for the many friends

who have blessed me with their company

 

yesterday

sometime

between racing here and there to complete

an endless list of errands

I remembered to be thankful for legs and arms

and wheels and smooth roads

in a safe country

 

yesterday

sometime

between the chopping and serving of a meal

I remembered to give thanks for the seeds

and the farmers and their tools

and the trucks that deliver to markets and

the thousands and thousands

of interlocking efforts that bring 

food to my table

 

yesterday

sometime

between good morning and good night

I remembered

really remembered

the goodness of my days
