On days like today when I feel sad or mad about what’s happening in the world, I try to be grateful for all of the blessings that surround me. Sometimes I go back into my life files and pull out something that makes me smile to share with others.
An Apple A Day
Yesterday I watched an angel Flutter through the supermarket She lingered over the produce Sampled carrots and grapes Polished apples until they reflected Stars and a tipsy moon Hanging over tasselled fields of corn I bought the apples ate one at lunchtime
I saw her this morning standing At the side of the road Tangled wings trailing behind her I stopped to ask if she needed a lift She shook her head pointed Toward the light plating the river Red and orange banks of cloud A dragonfly wrapped in sticky threads I went home ate another apple
The moon filled my room with laughter As I climbed into bed The angel came to my window Burnished the glass with her feathers Until it melted away
