Re: Happy Thanksgiving


I frankly enjoy this day. Spending it alone this year which is something I'm okay with. An FB friend posted a photo of a plaque calling the day a day of mourning and put up somewhere in New England, I think, by Native Americans, in place since '70. That makes good sense too. Everything right in taking in, commemorating, the whole of the American experience on this day in America.

Trust as many as possible are having a good day, free of worry.

Re: Happy Thanksgiving


          Solid Furniture

The man in the store said
"Four legs are more stable,"
as he shifted us slightly to the left
toward the four-legged table.
"A center post is fancy, yes,
but if you happen to bump it,
it can tip over and fall, take
Thanksgiving dinner with it.
But this four-legger here…
not as pretty, I guess,
an older design, after all,
but good solid furniture."

I thought, maybe that's true,
and that's not all. I thought
maybe I, too, am like
that four-legged table.
I've got Darwin and Einstein
on one side and Jesus and Lao tzu
on the other.

Not as pretty as a single support,
but solid furniture.
I bought the table.

Re: Happy Thanksgiving


music of the spheres
 
 
In the quiet of night sky
while starlight and peace prevail
a haunting rhythm,
music of the spheres,
slowly soars, entrances,
embracing fear,
kissing taunt of pain away.
Well into darkness, watching,
hoping for a passing meteor
to swoop down and carry me
far into another space,
where kindly constellations
tell stories of joy and thanksgiving.
Celestial fusion crackles and strains
like an old jazz recording.
Melodies of another age
written on a mighty, sacred wind
told like Homeric verse
by the wanderers --
heavenly nourishing guides
leading us home.
