Thank You, God

Thank You, God

A Poem by PadfootBlack

Just taking a bit of time of appreciate... well, EVERYTHING...























Thank You, God

For the gravel that crunches

under my feet

For the toad that hops out of my way

For Your whisper in that gust of wind

That sweeps up my hair, and steals

a breath of mine away.


Thank You, God

For blueberry skies

Pumpernickel splattered with blazing pink,

Deep crimson

And vivid ginger

Residuals of the rising sun


Thank You, God

For the green that I see

From the long, wooden trunks

Of the Redwood Trees

Stiff, proud, and powerful

To the littlest of your flowers,

A gentle bud not yet bloomed

Frail form waving in your gentle breeze


Thank You, God

For the owl’s sleepy hoot

For the finch’s bright greeting

For the cricket’s call

For the orchestra You’ve assembled today

And oh, the music You play…


Thank You, God,

for opening blind eyes

and causing deaf ears

to hear.

Author's Note

Not really a rhyming poem, sometimes I work one in, but it not really supposed to be labeled as a ryhming poem.

This came about as I was walking down my driveway, and because I have the benefit of living in the middle of nowhere, I was able to fully appreciate God's beauty. It was really nice. I suggest y'all do it sometime, yourselves. ;)

Hello Padfootblack,

A beautiful poem. You have written an appreciative thank you, and I am sure a tear falls from Her eye. Excellent, and elegant.

this is a beautiful expression of gratitude
blessings really do increase as the mind shifts to what is there rather than what is not...
thank you for sharing this uplifting inspiration
