One thousand gifts and still counting (2063-2090)

pillows from home
a trip to the beach
late night at the amusement park

seeing beauty through a four-year-old
movies from the library
snacks in a cooler
hot sand under my feet
salty waves

sprinkles on ice cream
hot water for a shower
enough to eat, more than enough
friends at a birthday party
water slides

little hands to hold
cuddles in my lap
her squeezes as much as she loves
the in-between
a place for my cat

Barbies gifted
a comfy spot to read
a "quiet place" on a bench in the garden
first guests
clean clothes

snacks and pizza delivered
juicy, sweet plums
a lap blanket
endings and beginnings
sunny days
