Praise for Pleasures Taken for Granted

It is so easy to be grateful especially for the small things all around us that we take for granted. This poem came after a long productive day when I stepped outside for a cool breath of light moonlight. Enjoy the poem and the little things all around you. -Dawn

Praise for Pleasures taken for Granted

Praise of Pleasures taken for Granted

The alternate light
of half moon
and lightning bugs
on a soft summer night
when bed-time is long earned
and I sit in my fleece robe
with time to read and lounge
and time to sleep in although
we don’t
enjoying the dewy morning
when the sunrise has washed
white as new bloomers,
when industriousness
rises up into your limbs
and you do and move and make
and step back to see
what you have accomplished
and embrace again
the moon a little more bright.
