In the Spirit of Gratitude - A poem by Anne-Marie Coury 2020

from a pure heart, gratitude

dances and directs

a positive outflowing of love,

praise that generates a feel-good acceptance

and recognition of another’s worth

while setting in motion a reciprocity

it’s a boomerang in fact.

but not in a premeditated way.

Gratitude doesn’t seek pleasure

or reward or even recognition

it is the ultimate exercise in freedom

to give without expectation

triggered by empathy

celebrated in all cultures

generated in the hearts of strangers

nurtured through acts of random kindness

whether anonymous or not

gratitude is one of our greatest teachers

may its sweet fragrance grace our lives

providing us with honeyed memories

enveloping us in a warm vibration

creating harmony and prosperity for all
