I’m grateful for the little things,
hairy caterpillars and dragonfly wings.
birds atop the springtime trees …
kissed by a breeze.
I’ve a fondness for robins and wrens and snails,
acrobatic squirrels with big bushy tails.
See the insects
that till the earth,
we take for granted
their vital worth.
I’m thankful for each little thing
that fills me with wonder and makes my heart sing.
