Untitled 3

Posted: April 5, 2010 in Uncategorized

I came across this in my stuff. It’s not dated or initialed which is unusual for me. I believe I wrote it on a Thanksgiving morning, but am not sure. The handwriting is pretty and not terribly rushed. So, that being said….here are some more words.

Untitled 3

Thanksgiving…

     for an existence

     requiring much persistance

     steering straight on rocky roads

     fog obscuring the clarity to negotiate

Thanksgiving…

     for smiles

     quiet rewards of love

     relationships that fit like a glove

     miles of hard work,  just because it needs to be done

     exhaustion, justified

Thanksgiving…

     for remembering precious times

     life’s remarkable record keeping polishes an shines

     the pictures never taken

     vividly imprinted on the paper of a mind

Thanksgiving…

     for looking forward to freedom

     to pass along unique wisdom

     sharing the knowledge only hardship can teach

     for if everything was easy

     there would be no stories to tell

Thanksgiving…

     for now

     for the present

     for the moment

     basking in the light of togetherness

     the song of loved ones communicating

     the voice that we all have to say “thank you”

     the heart and mind that will hold on and keep sacred this special day

Undated
