simple joys

Of warm coffee

in a happy mug

and a fridge full of

filling food

and a pantry with the

staples holding together

good health.

Friends who live

on the other side

of the phone

and a dog who has

loyalty and loving ways

that can be counted on.

A certain hope of

spring to come again

and in the meantime

my grandmother’s

book of God’s fire to

snuggle up to

in the winter night.
