Poems From The Porch

The Simple Presence of Gratitude

is happy to be here.

Nothing else is required but simple presence.

I did not have to say a certain thing

or give luxurious pets

or sit in an inviting posture.

The purring evidence of his contentment originates from within

and is based on gratitude.
