Happy thanksgiving


Most every year I do this

I thank you all,

For being


Then, thank you all

For allowing me

To be


Meaningful thanks

From a heart unlikely

From a soul inconsistent

At times

Know, all,

It is not just now

That my gratitude arises

Just that now

At this special time

Silly socializations may be sidelined

And thanks can be freely given


Little things

Big things

Personal and not so personal

Losses, additions

And the trials of life

Can be borne with the knowledge

That you, all of you

Accept me and mine

In a way that




Truly appreciates
