Bee’s Poem of the Day: Gratefulness

Hello out there, dear readers! I am sending you sunny Saturday greetings. Hopefully, you can enjoy it despite everything.

It is windy here in North Norfolk and feels a little like autumn. Very, very strange. I am spending my day blogging, watching tv and doing some housework. My energy has gone back to nearly normal and I am extremely grateful that so far I got away with only minor side effect to chemotherapy.

I have to admit I am grateful for a lot of things: that my treatment keeps going despite the virus. That they found cancer early. That so many lovely people support me in many different ways. That we have a garden to potter in when I feel like it. Books. My blogs. You blog readers!!!!!

A couple of years ago I made it a habit to find a couple of things in the morning and in the evening that I am grateful for. It is a good habit because as a habit it keeps reminding you when you are down in the dumps that there is always something good in your life. I can only encourage you to take it up 🙂



a simple habit

feeling it

living it

gives life a beautiful glow

that lasts in the dark


Just in case you wonder: this poetic form is called a Shadorma and is a Spanish syllabic poem form. I discovered it today because I wanted to edge away from my haiku inspired poetry. Find out more about it here.

Happy Saturday to you all despite everything.
