Thanksgiving eagle

Thanksgiving is a human joy
we gather as kith and kin
sharing repast and remembrances

as I sit lake side
bundled against cold autumn day
my heart thanks giving
for eagles, cormorants, gulls, crows and chickadees
I find like the striking eagle
I am hungry
but not for fish or food
I am hungry
wanting for all
peace, kindness, justice, equality, safety and fellowship

may the Creator grant us those sacred spaces
as we gather as kith and kin
sharing repast and remembrances

  1. I hope both sides of the world – the one where you wander and the one where I roam can soon find peace in the middle. Thanks for letting me glimpse the depth and breath of the world half a sphere away – you do it so marvelously!
