Some days are meant for savoring.
They may be the sweet days
filled with candy flavored events,
or they may be the slow days
when time tastes like lemonade on a hot July day.
Some days are fast and furious
like biting off the end of a jalapeno,
and, other days are awful
and no matter how many mints you consume,
you cannot mask the sour taste.
Days have a flavor all their own
and it’s in stopping and tasting,
that I remember to give thanks…
thanks for the sweet, the sour,
the savory and the sublime.
Learning to live a life of gratitude
has sharpened my senses
and taught me to taste it all.
