Wednesday Sky
Photo by Amy LV

The other day, Georgia looked out the window and exclaimed, "The sky looks like cotton candy!" And it did. Each day is full of such marvels, and this week I vow to behold more wonders in my life. Big ones, small ones, all.

Today I am grateful for a new word learned this week - murmuration.  You may already have found out what this means, but if not, visit  Wired Science to see something astoundingly lovely in the sky.

I know a local teacher who has her students write regularly about something they are grateful for.  Wise indeed.

Students - look around. Be grateful. Write about it.

I'm thankful to have met so many new friends through the beauty of words.  Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

Thank you today to Tabatha is hosting today's Poetry Friday over at The Opposite of Indifference. Stop on by!

  1. You are right; we should be thankful! I did know of the name of the group because my students did a study of the names and the history behind them a few years ago, but the video you shared is breath-taking. You have started my day with awe. Your poem is sweet and the ending 'startled' me. I am grateful!
