REFLECTION: "IN GRATITUDE"

The day was deeply overcast
with ominous clouds of anxiety ...
until your gracious word
and reassuring smile ...
let the clouds rain down cleansing drops
of empathy ...
to break the gray grimness
of irritant uncertainties ...
and let through the sunlight
making the world just right again.
