Simplicity

Yellow Roses in bloom
My yellow rose in bloom

Neighbor’s helping hand

Good news in the mail

Peace where I stand

Counting my blessings

Makes me feel grand!

Rhyme

Just a simple little rhyme today as I sit counting my blessings.

Sometimes I just stand and look at my roses in bloom and give thanks for their beauty.

Sometimes I see my neighbor’s friendly faces or am the recipient of their helping hands and am so grateful.

Sometimes when I see news reports of all the chaos, sadness and destruction going on all around the world I give thanks it is not happening in my little corner of the world.

And as I count my blessings, I pray for those who can’t.

I hope you who are reading this today are blessed and enjoying many little things in your life that are bringing you joy and happiness even in the midst of this pandemic.

Counting Blessings

Number 13

Thirteen

My lucky number

That’s the date of my birth

Glad mom wasn’t superstitious

That day

Cinquain

OctPoWriMo Day 29

Theme: By The Numbers

Most people think the number 13 is an unlucky number but since I was born on that day I have had to consider it positively as my parents always thought me to be a blessing to them and weren’t superstitious.

(Besides, I was born on a Tuesday not on a Friday!) 😊
