Thanksgiving (2009)

I had to dig deep.
I had to search long.

And then I remembered
the words from a song.

‘Jesus loves me this I know.’

So I stopped to enjoy
the crackle and glow.

I stopped to enjoy
the twinkling night sky.

I made it a point
to laugh and to cry.

I stopped to enjoy
the brilliant colors of a set.

I try with all might
to wake up before the rise.

The plants, the flowers,
the animals, the sounds.

Crunching leaves as I walked
then I rode, then I hiked.

And I thanked God
that I could.

Thanksgiving is so much bigger
than dinner, but the fragrance,
the family, what a truly lovely bonus!

My Poetry, Photography, and Journals hold treasure from grade school to high school to adult school, which I'm still attending ... just waiting for the final grade. Each layer of life reveals a new truth and with age, it becomes apparent that time is my greatest rival. My hope is to reflect with words and pictures that offer comfort, insight, and wisdom for a life well-lived with peace and tranquility in the end.
