Ingrid Goff Maidoff - Tending Joy

Celebrating Poetry, Beauty,
& the Sacred Essence of Joy

Praise and Unspoken Gratitudes



I wish I could bring you with me on walks around the island.  I snap photographs and jot notes in my notebook, receiving words and poems.


Here is this morning’s poem……..

There are undreamed dreams inside you.
Might you name a few?

There are some hopes that were dashed and are jagged –
could you breathe them into repair?

And what of praise and unspoken gratitudes-
begin to speak them in every moment.

Speak them and feel your life turning
from worry into song.

~Ingrid Goff-Maidoff

    Beautiful poem. I sent it to my children as they begin their day of uncertainty and challenges. Really enjoy your mailings and poetry. Thank you for birthing all of the words that lie in my unspoken heart.
