For Granted

*1: to assume (something) as true, real, unquestionable, or to be expected 2: to value (something or someone) too lightly: to fail to properly notice or appreciate (someone or something that should be valued)

Indoor plumbing,

clean water that is always

nearby, a home with walls, 

a real floor, a roof,

shoes, socks, coats—

clothing in abundance,

a fully-stocked pantry and fridge,

a home, a hearth, family and friends,

a love for which I did nothing in return—

may I give thanks for all I take for granted.

—C.L. Fisher, November 2021
