Plenty ~

My wishes are filled
a single companion
on the path 
a little book 
from eternity's song 
shelter, water and food 
the presence of light 
when I remember to see 
and someone with whom 
to foolishly complain 
when darkness hides the sun -

  2. Margie,

    A wonderful poem of thankfulness, for all that is there, with us. Sometimes we do not ssee the beauty, simply when a moment of darkness, obstructs a total view...Nice to have a trusty companion in life as well:)

  12. Hi Margie! Well, I always think that if I'm with a friend I can be joyful and complain! But you're right...it is silly to complain in the face of so many gifts from God.
    This made me think!
    Happy Weekend :)

    1. Hello Ceil
      It's okay to be joyful and complain, I did that tonight with my best friend (my husband)
      I am blessed to have him.

      Thanks for the visit and comment.

  13. Your poem perfectly sums up the essentials in life: the right companion, a little book, water, food , light.

  17. We're both lucky, Margie, that we have longstanding companions with whom to walk and talk, and share! I love the dramatic photo - that tree makes you look VERY small indeed. I'm off the computer a lot - we're busy readying the Denver house for sale.
