poeming on thanksgiving

giving thanks

for all that i have, for all that i do not have: i give thanks.

for everything. and nothing. and something.

for love beyond measure. for ability and thankfulness and awe.

for laughter and tears. for the nights spent broken on the floor and the days spent reading in happy solitude.

for the grace of a hand holding mine when i least expect.

for the land and the sea and the spaces in between.

for birth and for death and all the wonderful times in between.

for everything. yes. for everything: i give thanks.
