for dogs
who forget to sleep in
on holidays;
for cats
who think every day
is a holiday
(about them!);

for fireworks
that dance
in the night skies;
for butterflies
that glide
on summer breezes;

for children
bouncing on trampolines;
for wrinkled hands
that caress our cheeks;

for all blessings
that are ours
to give away:

we thank you,
Wonderful God,
we thank you!
