appreciation

pow
thwack
slam
a bit of
(metaphorical)
violence
directed at myself
a slap
a kick
knocking sense
into myself
until I get it
really understand
how lucky I am
how much I have
to be thankful for
how much there is
to look forward to
how wonderful
all the little things are
appreciate
the simplicity
of your touch
the pleasure
of being amid nature
the joy
of my children’s smiles
and there is nothing
wrong with getting older
when I’m getting older
with you
