223: Instead of Spending All Our Money
I’d like to buy a fig tree for the living room,
a cardigan for the plane,
new prints for the walls
We’ve talked about buying herbs
for the window box,
a bigger rug, another set of sheets.
You’d like to buy a bag for your bike
and everyone could always use
a new pair of tennis shoes.
But we are not in a season of more.
We are in a season of This is enough
and Isn’t it lovely? So I tuck want
in my back pocket and invite
gratitude to dance.
We trip over each other’s feet a lot,
because want keeps asking to step in,
but eventually gratitude and I find our rhythm.
The song is called “Tell Me Something Good,”
and at the end of the night
we say to each other
This was lovely.
Let’s do it again soon.
