Gratitude Card

Here is the collage that I did for a deck project, all about Gratitude. It was fascinating to see what all the things were that the participants were grateful for. The words say: "I Am So Grateful for This TIME". The picture is clickable to see it larger. Isn't that background image amazing? It was from an article illustration in the magazine Wired (it is smoke!).
I thought it would be a good illustration for this poem about time, and since it is Poetry Thursday, here goes:
Marking Time
by Julie Zaccone Stiller
Slow pause hesitate
Notice observe absorb
How long did that take?
...
Endless stretch ahead
no horizon's end in sight
The door closes on this moment.
...
Awaken to this new day
another cycle echoes
Repeat the lessons learned
...
Again Tomorrow Now
all crash in synchronicity
Shoulders sag under time's burden

I love how this feels like one big circle.

That's a great gratitude card. Wish i'd done the swap. Sigh. Not enough time. Or perhaps, it just feels that way.
