Today she talks non-stop,
sits upright in the chair,
fairly bounces through her day.
this shift inside
is like three thousand
steady burning flames.
gratitude tonight is both
the largest and the smallest
we have talked about yet.
it is gratitude for self.
it is the release that happens
left completely open & vulnerable to the world
you look to yourself and find the key to change
to remember you
and to re-inspire.
it seems a small thing, this gratitude for self
but it is in fact the sum of all things
it is the very glue that takes the littlest bits
and holds them all together.
it is, in fact, the littlest bit of all.
