For the snow, thank you.
For the footprints of happy dogs in the snow, thank you.
For the cloth that the snow throws over a table, as if getting ready for a party, thank you.
For a wheelbarrow full of snow that any day now will melt into water, insurance against next year’s drought, thank you.
For the sun, just about to come up over the fence and the trees, just about to sparkle on dogs and tables and wheelbarrows and me and friends and strangers and this new day, thank you.
