At the End of Winter

Gratitude is an evolved
Social emotion.
I can feel grateful. Often,
I feel grateful to people.

As the world owes me nothing,
I owe nothing to the world.
The world can offer pleasure,

Sometimes, and sometimes
The world can offer delight.
I take pleasure. I delight.

The last snow melting
From this heavy-headed palm
In startled Arizona
In renewed sun drips delight.
