Meander Series #19 Poetry: Thank you for pillows

The time when meandering with me continues!

Today's a whimsical one folks. 

A poem of thank yous created a while back polished with a few new lines. 


Enjoy!


Poem title: THANK YOU FOR PILLOWS


Thank you for friends we've made

Thank you for good health

Thank you for the roof over our heads

Thank you for pets and animals,

Creatures and spirits that

enrich our lives

Thank you for the magic

of electricity

Thank you for the gift

of connectivity

Thank you for the

wondrous green spaces

Luscious mountains

The warmth

in strangers' faces

Thank you for friends we have

yet to make

Thank you for those

that love us from afar

Thank you for friends

in the distance

whose hearts

we are bonded with

Thank you for the stormy weather

Thank you for the heavenly

skyline the day after

Thank you for our neighbors

Thank you for our neighborhood

cats, mongoose, monkeys, lizards

birds, frogs and dogs

Thank you for the angels

and guides,

Thank you for an

unanticipated delight

Thank you for fluttering

butterflies,

Thank you for flickering

lights in the night,

Thank you for bulbs

Thank you for the stove

to cook our favorite grub

Thank you for the oven

to assist in earring baking

Thank you for smiles

Thank you for frowns

Thank you for healthy teeth

Thank you for strong legs

Thank you for frizzy hair days

Thank you for shiny waves

Thank you for roads

Thank your for trimmed trees

Thank you for wild bushes

Thank you for a cleared path

Thank you for pillows

Thank you for a firm bed

Thank you for pastas

Thank you for the scent of

wild flowers

Thank you for incense

imbuing the air with

inexplicable tranquility

Thank you for beliefs

Thank you for the ability to discern

Thank you for the breeze

Thank you for silence

Thank you for dreams

Thank you for nightmares

Thank you for blooming flowers

Thank you for dead bouquets

Thank you for singing birds

Thank you for croaking frogs

Thank you for barking dogs

Thank you for meowing cats

Thank you for big trees

Thank you for small ones

Thank you for vegetables

Thank you for fruits

Thank you for rabbits,

Roosters and hens

Thank you for a sweet breeze

on a crazy hot day

Thank you for thundering skies

And toasty nights

Thank you for silliness

Thank you for insights

Thank you for silence

That need no filling up

Thank you for the familiar noises

Of those we love
