SIMPLE THINGS

The warmth of his hand holding mine
… baby rabbits in the bittersweet vine
the promise of today in the sunrise glow
… sunflowers smiling… row upon row

so many beautiful things

Humming birds at my window feeder
… dueling and putting on a show
warming my hands in the sun’s glow…
My grandchildren’s pudgy feet…

there is no thing as sweet

just gifts… these things
Chasing fireflies with a little girl
… glowing night angels on wings
these things color my world…

I am thankful for these things

Soldiers stand ready to defend
these peaceful things to no end
I am grateful… and proud of all of them
who are placed in harm’s way… life and limb

to protect these precious things…
