blessing for sound health

by matthew scott harris
(schwenksville, pennsylvania)

upon waking every morning

I offer silent benediction for the ability

to revel with full faculty

of this aging body still going strong

where ability sans enjoying the simple pleasures

available thru bodily senses

plus relishing memories before daughters took flight

at their self propelled Kitty Hawk in my nonsensical mien

worth more than money can buy

yet of course if I did happen to be a lucky lottery winner

that could definitely relief some anxiety and allow

me to breathe easy, yet could never do justice

pitted against robust body, mind and spirit triage.
