Giving Thanks

I spent a lot of time thinking about the earthweal challenge this week, to write a poem of thanks. It all came down to the same thing: I’m thankful for life, to be alive. But I couldn’t think of another better way to say it.

always unexpected—this
grace, this balancing—darkness
shining into light

Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating, and those who are not. May we remember and honor all life with care and gratitude.

    Yes. Me, too. You said it as well as it can be said. We are grateful for life – to be alive. No matter what.

    The picture reminds me of a festive meal, for which one gives thanks, and the poem of the miracle of life itself. Happy Thanksgiving indeed!
