With gratitude

With gratitude

Two small words

Cover all the joy experienced

The gift of friendships acquired

The hope of more days to journal

To share  and to make

Connections so essential, so real

And from these past days of learning

Some familiar skills

Many unfamiliar and untried

 Tools of poetry writing

Taking liberty to write with no fear

To speak out from one’s inner soul

To all poets out there

To the folks at Word press

Most of all to Ben
