Thanking God... - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

i thank God today
for giving me that
gift to like what i
do.

For what seems hard
at first, after so many
attempts, becomes
as easy as it goes.

i am not climbing a
mountain anymore
i am sliding on its
belly.

I could have stopped
dreaming. I could have
quit reality.

I could not have joined
two opposing worlds,
i could not have
liked myself, i could not
have loved you,

that first glance was
beguiling
imagination is wild like
that spoiled child,
that favorite dog,
the kitten that sleeps
with me at night,
that tolerated spider
that caught a fly,
that destroyed innocence...

today has changed, and
so I thank you Lord.
