  1. Blessings

    I gave you sunshine
    You didn’t see it

    I gave you moonlight
    You didn’t appreciate it

    I gave you children’s laughter
    You got annoyed

    I gave you a sweet someone
    You complained when would the one come

    I gave you a loyal puppy
    You said there was too much work

    You let all the blessings pass by
    Now you cry to me like an orphan
    ‘God are you ever there?’

  2. you can keep your wine and roses
    bring me a cup of tea on a cold day
    the blessing of romance
    is in the eye of the receiver

  3. For each Monday’s prompts
    I am forever grateful
    as these pics do help
    as do the ideas too
    get those thoughts percolating
