Words for Gratitude

a quartet of spoken word poems

ByJorah LaFleur

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The idea of purposefully practicing gratitude seems both freshly popularized and inherently ancient. From earth-based harvest rituals to therapeutic journaling, the concept of gratitude travels through our humanity, appearing always to provide something sacred, healing, necessary. And yet, I find my mind can easily stray away from a lens of gratitude, and habitual effort is required to make sure that “thank you” is never too far from my lucky lips. I’m curious about gratitude, particularly about its relationship to grief, and it has been my pleasure to contemplate and collaborate with other creatives who are too. The Nature of Gratitude (NOG) is an annual benefit series that brings together a multi-faceted ensemble of artists focusing on shared sub-themes. Through music, spoken word, and photography, we explore and experience gratitude. These performance poems, REFUGE, ROOTS, RESPITE, and RETURNING, each began as contributions to our group presentations. In this book, I hope they will serve as both invocations and invitations. What words welcome gratitude into your world?
