November Poetry: Hidden Blessings

Published by Lydia Richmond on


almost over

thank goodness

from hand foot mouth to

stomach virus

MRIs and kidney stones

stress, adulting, and more


almost over

thank goodness

for growing wiser

opening old wounds

healing them with love and hugs

rekindling relationships on the verge of being lost


almost over

an election year

we wish we could forget

anger, bitterness, resentment

on both sides

over now — we move forward


almost over

beneath the ugly

behind the tears



life’s hidden blessings

Personal for you and yet universal as these are sentiments many of us hold. Despite it all, ending in positivity.

Amazing! The last months of 2016. Momentous in so many ways . . .
