On Counting Them Again

the taste of ice cold lemonade on a hot day,
the realization that a giant smile is plastered across your face,
long drives with your best friends,
the perfect stillness of a place in the middle of nowhere,
fresh flowers,
mason jars to put them in,
finding a free afternoon and using it to finally clean the bathroom,
saying yes,
finishing a task that feels unending,
little paws tapping the side of the bed to see if you're awake,
slumber parties,
kyle chandler and connie britton,
fancy dresses and high heels,
farmers markets,
new ideas,
smiles exchanged,
being as brave as possible,
bodies of water,
your body,
my body,
keeping a tiara next to the bed,
the gentle ease into fall,
the sound of the voices of the people you love most,
saying no,

i am grateful for you.
