Gratitude

by Kristina Woodhill

Ah the sheer sneeze of it!
The chew of cheese of it!
The cooling breeze of it!
And from these bended knees
I give You thanks

Hi Kristina. Love this because, gratitude is something of which none of us can give too much. I think it's on the smiles, the thanks we give, our little gestures of appreciation, that our neighbors, friends and especially our children, build up their philosophy of life. Thanks.

LOL! Excellent reflection of title in text. Wonderfully positive from sneeze to knees. :o)

The approach is positive and life always echos our approach, recompensing what we fill it with.

I love the wild abandon of the first three lines, the deep inhale of life and sensation. Then the drawing into a quietness, which I like to think has multiple interpretations, but the basic thanks and joy taken in existence and feeling is what stands out or comes to "bended knees" for me.

It's a good poem too. I like this simple reflection of daily experience and the budding gratitude lovely as a flowing creek.
