Dots and text seem to be the theme of this weeks gratitude journal. The left page has my sketch of a weeping cherry tree and text from magazines of things I’m grateful for. I like having Swim and Feline adjacent, if only in my journal. I was introduced to the Langston Hughes poem on the right page by a new friend and it is perfect for this week.

In time of silver rain

The earth puts forth new life again,

Green grasses grow

And flowers lift their heads,

And over all the plain

The wonder spreads


Of Life,

Of Life,

Of life!


In time of silver rain

The butterflies lift silken wings

To catch a rainbow cry,

And trees put forth new leaves to sing

In joy beneath the sky

As down the roadway

Passing boys and girls

Go singing, too,


In time of silver rain When spring

And life

Are new.


Langston Hughes
