June thankfulness June 5, 2013

Skies bluer than sapphires

Sun glowing, turned the world into High Definition.

Birds calling, trilling, chirping, clicking, singing

Swooping, sailing on a sky sea

Warm breeze a caress,

blowing sultry scents into nostrils.

Barbeque sauce tangoing on the tongue.

With friends, in fellowship,

we celebrate service above ourselves.

There is a lot to be thankful for in June.


June is Rotary Fellowships month.  Fellowships are Rotarians who share a passion, like chess, travel, puzzles, etc.

  1. “Barbecue sauce tangoing on the tongue.” — love that!

  2. Very nice, poem, we have had a few of those June days already. Is there a rotarian poetry fellowship?

    Hi Shawn,

    I hope it’s OK to use this invocation at our weekly Rotary Club of Philadelphia meeting. It’s a nice one. Thanks for sharing.

    Be well,
    President 2013-2014
