Thanksgiving Poem by Richard Wlodarski


Rating: 4.9

O Lord Creator
Today I give thanks
For so much in life:
Two eyes witnessing
Birth of Creation
Two ears hearing
Nature's symphony
A mouth tasting
Life's abundance
A nose smelling
All that is good
Two feet walking
In others' shoes
Two hands welcoming
God's friendly neighbours

And One Heart
Shared with God

does a computer write your poems? you have so many 'new ones'! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! favorite lines: A mouth tasting Life's abundance A nose smelling All that is good food, right? i hope so. but it makes me stop and think: does ice cream have an aroma? i eat it too fast, perhaps, to ever have noticed; really. others' shoes? what are the others wearing if YOU are wearing THEIR shoes? ? ? ! who are God's neighbors? i am thankful for what i have: callouses on my soles, cavities in my teeth, pain in my back, R. Wlodarski and others on PH. but i don't know who to thank for them. i lost belief in God years ago and He has not come knocking on my door since. sure, the LDS and Witnesses have knocked. bri :)

Bri, I must admit that you have very unique creative feedback which I like. I'm working on feeding my thoughts into the computer and having it create my poems. That way, I'll be able to generate a few thousand every day. Although I'm kidding, this technology already exists. Scary thought! With respect to God, you might consider wanting to revisit that issue sometime in the future. If not, just give thanks to the universe. Thank you for your support and encouragement. And for your sense of humour. Greatly appreciated!

It takes a noble heart to concoct these humble thoughts and concern, but a nobler one to defy opposites and proclaim publicly as the poet here just did/does. Peace to your soul. Grand piece you've got, Sir.
