Gratitude For Everyday Life


two red tulips
lean towards sun
perennial friends

a pause in the yard
with a bag of groceries
fragrance of lilacs

lilacs and sky path to new dreams

reading poetry
in the garden
summer school

each flower
a star for a time

stack of art books
not needing to read today
just need them there

prayers before dawn
a few fireflies
by the window

dragonfly rests
for a moment
on the tree branch
long enough for me
to see each wing

my old sweater
worn thin
Queen Anne’s Lace
along country roads
