Daily Prompt: Thank You

The internet is full of rants. Help tip the balance: today, simply be thankful for something (or someone).

Photographers, artists, poets: show us THANKS.

This day carries so many memories
Some still raw as the day it happened
Some covered over by scars unseen
Pulled back to that place they’d once been
Back on that day so many years ago
Though never too far from our minds
When the world as we knew it changed forever
Safety, security – left far behind
But out of the ashes came a spirit
Too strong for approaching darkness to quell
Hands reached out to hold another
Touching goodness wherever it dwelled
And so I say thank you to each one of you
Strong with the spirit of love and compassion
For I see the hope that dwells deep within you still
That no act of evil can ever darken
