For a cute apron because I’m messy

For the seesaw motion that chops the pecans just so

For the cookies that will be out of the oven soon

For the scent of lemon just because

For that moment when I finally get to the pond

And off come my shoes

And I can swing my toes

Back and forth over the water

Peaceful and free

For the tiniest flower that blooms

In unsuspecting places

Even when there hasn’t been enough rain

Reminding me that I can do the same…

For all this and so much much more

I am ever grateful…
