Year-round gratitude

Spring is being blessed and happy,
      with blooming flowers.
Summer is being blessed and hot,
      with abundant sunshine.
Autumn is being blessed and reflective,
      with colored leaves.
Winter is being blessed and chilly,
      with sparkling snow.

—Terri Guillemets

P.S. Thank you to Kaori Ogawa who turned this poem into beautiful artwork titled “Four Seasons,” which was displayed at the Filoli Garden Inspirations Calligraphy Exhibit in California. The art was chosen to be featured on the publicity postcard for the event. —tg, 2017
