Better attitude today. Thanks for the kick in the ass. :) Needed it.

Kissed by the rain,
a blade of grass overcomes drought
and bursts through the hardpack
fully alive:
Though sun and storm
tried to dwindle her to the seed
she once was, she fought against
her enemies:
the worst, her doubts
that she would make it ... she need not
have worried; she was stronger
than she believed:
now, here she is,
grateful for lessons in struggle,
she proved she's a survivor,
just as I am:
Battle scarred, yes;
weary, yes; but life is good -
it's a miracle we're here,
the grass and I.

(c) 2006, Karla Dorman.

Now this is more like it, striking images painted with words that capture the minds eye and holds it there to the last word. Life is full of ups and downs Karla, the trick is to bounce back up with this type of attitude when we can.

Good wake-up call, Karla! Grass is tough and old, and it fed buffalo herds before that! Use this as rationale for eliminating negativity.

An encouraging write that many will be happy to read and learn from.

You got it in a nutshell Karla
You are greater than you think or even imagine

No looking back's not allowed...lols
The picture is very symbolical
