I am going to post twice on this prompt. The first post is a piece I wrote yesterday called "What Do You Pray For!" It is commentary on a conversation with other women.

The second will be about those prayers that do not ask for anything at all. Grateful is indeed a beautiful word.

Invited hereby to my site
please be. You see I poems write
and knight like fight and youth alight.
That photo says it. Godly, right?

I want more readers. I want you
to come as if out from the blue
and tell me what I write is true
and make my motivation new.

Why you? This is not spam, God’s dear.
I stand by what I do. I care.
Your senseless love to me I fear.
I mean it. I am good. Take care.

Good prompt. Forces us to count the little blessings in life that we so easily ignore.

From "Grapefruit Moon":

Now I'm smoking cigarettes
And I strive for purity,
And I slip just like the stars into obscurity.
'Cause every time I hear that melody,
Well, puts me up a tree,
And the grapefruit moon, one star shining,
Is all that I can see.

I found the prompt quite hard at first and then it clicked. I love being back at school again and doing 'homework'!

Thanks not only for the site, but also to the kind folks who themselves write, and also come in and read and leave comments. It means the world.

1st time try at this for me, not sure Multiply allows links like this but I hope so. Anyway, the exercise is good.

Thanks, Megg and Laini for always being here with a prompt, every Sunday. Whether something comes to me to write about it or not, I'm always grateful that those prompts are here. Thank you.
Have a happy Thanksgiving.

I hope I'm not too late! But, is it ever too late to be grateful? I think we all know the answer to that!! I hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving! Jan

This is my first visit to your blog. What a great prompt offering. I am reading several of the takes on this one, around the blogs. I will try to come up with one myself, before the end of the week. Also will add you to my blogroll.
