Thank You

Thanksgiving

sharp winter chill
(not autumn)
morning

brilliant sun
cloudless sky
frost
crisp grass

warm air
escaping lungs
like body-cloud

toasty thoughts
comforting
challenging

counting blessings
assuaging guilt
so many
alone
hope-bereft

soul steam
circling hot coffee cup
fogs inside

god light
intense fall color
cinnabar
bronze
beckons
dance with me
with life
insists
come
play
celebrate gifts
enjoy
give back

A warm thank you to all of you who take the time to visit and comment on my blog. May you always have something to be grateful for, so that thanks-giving be celebrated everyday, in every corner of the world. Come on over to the Pub and join your thanks to ours.

    The photo is stunning… it has such an other-worldly quality… sort of ethereal… I think it’s the play on light/darkness.
    Hope you had a blessed thanksgiving, Victoria! 🙂 🙂

  21. I love the structure and rhythm on this poem. It has a wonderful sense of festivity to it and yet includes thoughts of those who may not be having such a festive time. I know it’s thanksgiving over in the U.S so Happy Thanksgiving to you.

    It’s hard to enumerate the blessings of every day, you’ve done a good job. 🙂 And I’m wondering if there’s anything we couldn’t be grateful for, if we really looked hard for the blessing… Thank you.
