Today's Gratitude

For cold tea (white pear) in the hand-turned pottery cup Paqui gave me.

For my grandmother Nora.

For autumn days of optimism and splendor.

For peridot, the green-hearted stone.

For all the fountains in Rome.

For Mozart.

For chocolate with orange peel.

For flannel nightgowns, and chilly nights on which to snuggle into them.
