Give Thanks

For streams in which I fish,
and my daughter's wish
to set a date for me to take her -
Into the Woods we travel,
Austin tossing pieces of gravel.

For dogs jumping at the door
panting and holding not back their adoration.

For toy guns and leather holsters
handed over with pride,
"For a boy in this day with a cap gun."

Time spent wrestling not with the remote,
but with each other. While Kylie
and Fisky switch allies for fun.

For order and the anchor of my life.
Sweet smiles and intelligence,
deliverance from chaos,
administrator of justice.
Walking together through every strife.
