Honor: Ordinary Glory // Day 19

Honor seems like a special word

Reserved for

Glory,

Power,

Uniforms,

Ceremony,

Importance,

Occasion.

But honor shows up in my house

When kids say thank you,

When we lovers call midday

To eat lunch together,

Setting aside a moment to revere.

This morning I look up at clear sky,

Clouded only a moment ago—

I feel glory in color of red leaf,

Light breeze,

Sun catching birch tree unaware.

The mutual God glory of love felt and seen,

Acknowledged.

This post is Day 19 of 31 Days of Poetry.

What does honor mean to you?
