Gratitude Lately

Lately I’ve been grateful for vented work shirts,
For edelweiss flowers,
For Dollywood rides and cinnamon bread,
For falafel and shared salad plates,
For happy memories of this blue cotton print,
And for springtime roses, as the hot summer looms.

Happy May! What are you grateful for today?
