Gratitude

“Mark this, then, you who forget God,
     or I will tear you apart;
        there will be no one to deliver.
  Those who bring thanksgiving
     as their sacrifice honor me;
        To those who go the right way
     I will show the salvation of God.” ~ Psalm 50:22-23

To the east
I cannot tell
where sky ends
mountain begins
all there is gray
with relative
ambiguity

Westward
a falling sun
erases the mist
over the islands
leaving the sea
in definitive
perspicuity

About Peter Notehelfer

I'm a retired people person who now finds the time to watch the little details of the world without worrying about being watched by anyone . . . I live on an Island north of Seattle with my wife named Ellen, a yellow dog named McGee, a yellow cat named Gatzby, and four fine chickens . . . I read fiction, bake bread, smoke salmon, and fish whenever the weather allows . . . Oh, and yes, I try to write a poem every day simply to avoid senility!
