Gratitude

With the dawn, the sunshine spreads its wings,
the humble sunflowers reach the sky to touch it,
the trees spread their arms to breathe in the love,
the birds leave their abodes to make a living,
the forest resumes its chorus and scenes.The rhinos bask under the heavens of warmth,
the cubs measure the paths made visible again,
the cuckoos send their prayers to the unknown,
and I bow down to the mighty with devout admiration,
with my heart breathing pure gratitude.Through this poem I express my gratidue (my humblest gift) to all the beings and things who selflessly bestow their love and kindness upon us. Like the sun, the earth, and above all, our parents.

In response to Ella’s Promt: Poets United
