T is for Thank You (A to Z Bonus Post)

Thank you

For the fire
ignited deep within 
awaking and urging me to dream bigger
to do better
to want more

For the passion
once dormant but now burning brightly
making me feel young
and beautiful 
and vibrant

For the clarity
gained from a lesson I needed to learn
reminding me of who I am
what I believe
where I belong

For the act
exposing your truest of colors
making my decision easy
washing my hands
closing the door

Thanks for stopping by and taking a moment to read my latest poetry attempt.

This is a bonus post for the 2016 Blogging A to Z Challenge.  Many bloggers who participate in this challenge, select a theme.  My theme is - "Whatever I Think Of."

  1. This to me is one of the best things I have read. How do I explain why? It evoked something within me! Too deep to go into now, but I thank you for sharing this with me, it really reached me deep down. #mg

  2. Very thought provoking. Thanks for sharing #mg

    1. Thank you for your kind words. Poetry is new endeavor for me, one that I have never been particularly good at, but which has emerged during this A to Z Blogging Challenge. I started out writing a full blown post, but before I knew it, the post had become a crazy, untamable beast. The only solution I could come up with was to convert it, or the feelings I wished to convey, into a reasonably size poem. I appreciate you stopping by and taking the time to comment.

  3. Very thought provoking. Thanks for sharing #mg

  4. I liked this. Really got me thinking, I don't read much poetry but I enjoyed this xx #mg

    1. Thank you for the compliment and for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate it.

  5. Sounds like there is more of a juicy story behind this post? :-) #mg

    1. Juicy? Not really. Bittersweet, definitely. Thank you for stopping by and for taking the time to comment.
