For What Do I Owe This Honor

Updated on July 17, 2018

It Is Late Yet You Still Come

With all the things in the world right now

You have come by to wish the warmest greetings

For there are many occasions that would be welcome

I am thrilled with the comfort from thy own heart

At the same time I am amazed at the raw pleasure

From as far as the eyes can see

There is beauty from the sky above to the earth

A great anticipating feeling of joy

For what is about to happen next

When two people meet

They exchange ideas and thoughts

This is the wonderful gift of life

We can learn and appreciate so much

By repeating this over and over

For every day that we live

Not in order to get but to give

        Shannon Henry You are understanding and so sweet. I try to leave town before the storm gets bad and come back later when the storm has disappeared. I often try to tie down the hatches and finish up any loose ends. Then unexpectedly a quick storm will catch me off guard. So much so I get blown away. I grab hold on to anything I can to grab hold. Then I brace myself for the worst to come. I manage to survive. Many times I scratch my head trying to figure out how. Then I realize so many people have gone through so much worse. Of course I could do it. Happy to be here and sharing a thought or two. I am so blessed to have friends that understand. I like to think I can solve problems but sometimes it seems out of my hands. Then I wait to see the dust clear like an old western and check myself for bullet holes. I have fun with life and life has fun with me. (most of the time) Thank you for responding and making my night even more peaceful. Here is to a wonderful world of writing where the writing never stops even when the pen runs out of ink.

        Don't worry about how long it takes you respond. Life happens and we all understand that. As for storms in your head, well, I've had plenty of my own to wade through. I know how that feels, too, so I cannot fault you for that either. Yes, when the pieces finally all fall apart then we can pick up only what we need and leave the rest behind. Painful as it can be sometimes, it all works out for the good.

        Gypsy Rose Lee I love thoughts of new people and the spirit of life. Each bringing together a deeper feeling of kindness and comfort. Here it is you traveled thousands of miles and managed to still write. I got caught up in thoughts and stopped thinking and writing. It is strange how the mind works sometimes. The weather turned into thunderstorms today and rain all day. Through the rain and the wind I found myself again. I can't wait to hear about your first swim. The lovely walks. The new place. The new restaurants. I have so many questions and I will ask only a few at a time. Thank you for reading and following me. My deepest sincerest apology for not responding sooner. Life gives us surprises that throws us for a loop. Then we find our way out and back on track again.

        Shannon Henry I do believe poems write themselves. They life us up to a higher level of thinking. Beyond our logical mind. Thank you so much for reading and caring. I have been caught in a storm in my head. Now that it is over I can see the sun break. The rain has stopped. Things are looking brighter and brighter. Work got me struggling and trying to understand why? Sometimes we just have to let things fall apart so we can see all the pieces. Thank you so much for being patient. I like to respond to all comments within a reasonable time. This is well beyond. Keep happy and make it a fun day.

        Chitrangada Sharan I think we learn to take everything for granted because it is so easy. Little do we know the beauty is so incredible and it keeps giving every time if we notice it or not. I have been so busy lately. I feel so bad it took me so long to respond. I appreciate you commenting and sharing. May today give us a smile we never had before.

        I know what you mean my poems most often work that way, too.

        Beautiful verse. Tomorrow for the first time I will head for the boardwalk and get a look at that big puddle they call the ocean lapping the shores here in Florida. Then I have discovered a water park about a block from where I live so I have different ways to get out of the house and to keep cool. Hope you have a very good weekend.

        Shannon Henry I wanted to write more but my thoughts just stopped. It felt like it was complete in some strange way. When we meet and talk so many things happen. The endless flow of ideas is pretty amazing. Thank you so much for being the first to comment and share.

        Much shorter than I am used to from you, but also one of my favorites from you. I enjoy the exchange of thoughts and ideas... Philosophies and theories.... Just for the sake of doing it. For me, there doesn't necessarily have to be some bigger goal in mind to discuss those things. And then sometimes someone says something that stays with me for years, perhaps a lifetime, to come. Those are the things that can matter more than we imagine at the time of exchange.
