THANKSGIVING 11.22.2018.11:11AM

We place our hand on our heart.

In exchange for the laughter + our freedom,

we release—old memories…


this a new way of seeing,

on a day that what disposable, be



thus what crafted be, respected,

might a love that grow in us — be received,

for reciprocity and cooperation 

know happiness shows through,

and not—of…


yes, might sunlight and angels,

whose flights—soothe and light,

be like the vast

of blue skies

having eyes, may we too see

hearts that feel more 

peace than pain, 

more beauty, than sorrow


might then, we give 

more possibility than—

gifted ruby’s or diamonds

thus truer gifts become 

the hope of brighter days whilst 

extended arms ours wrap

—around the silent and wounded


might we see compassion in their smiles,

hear caring in their words —

feel goodness in their hearts…


shall we foster it today—wellbeing,

might all children be, a

future brightness shining—now

like justice balanced—swiftly, abundance flows, 

natural and unobstructed…


might we relax time today, 

thus all perceptions freed—

no long corridors now, no walls, no locked doors evermore…


for you are as God created —

the part, in the whole

and though, appearing like sparrow,

behold—her breathtaking beauty unfolds


with eyes the source of light—
