Day of Gratefulness


A stroll through the wetlands this day of gratefulness. Hawks and black birds and falcons in flight. Trickling streams hidden below thickets of reeds. Miles of golden and russet grasses with patches of cattails ripe with seeds. My beloved’s hand holding mine. And the sky! Vast and painted with wispy clouds. Such a gorgeous day to be alive and to commune with the land. It’s everything.
