Giving Thanks #thanksgiving


red-fall

With open hands tho little here

I offer thanks this time of year

tho seasons change and winds grow cold

 there’s warmth in smiles of young and old

kindled kindness shared with all

warmly given every fall

gifts of heart like waters flow

from these pools love can grow

foul the water where anger prevails

no tears can quench harsh travails

come look up on bended knee

bountiful is God’s beauty

Today in the United States we celebrate Thanksgiving. It may to some be represented in the food eaten but in our hearts it is for the freedoms we enjoy.

  1. Hi Moondust .. thanks for the poem and word … it is for the freedoms we enjoy, while we need to remember all others too – let’s hope the world grows together and gives praise for all about us … cheers Hilary
