Long road to gratefulness

Will I be grateful only...
For the crispness of spring
The sunshine on my back
A free day to take a long walk
The occasional novel thrown in
A satisfying day of work
And an email long overdue
For a dainty tea party
A cook-out with friends

Will I be grateful?
For deadlines and feverish writing
And a mind that loves to wander
Days that feel like years
The sudden pangs of loneliness
A stack of dirty dishes by the sink
Food appetizing to none
For pricking conscience and over-zealous moments
Every plan waylaid

wouldn't be as interesting if it was not lived in the head
