November 22 Ablaze

It's mornings like this;
The stingy sun trying to hold back
Even the warmth of its reflection
Flashing coldly In the lake.
When November leaves drop in sudden gusts,
Like a red and yellow flock of birds
Swooping at once to ground.
Or even nights:
When winds reach wet hands
To take you spinning with random paper
Down back street gutters, under straining bridges
To clogged rivers.
It's this:
The time of year, along with spring,
When poets must take care
Not to sing the same old songs
Stolen from tribal memory.
-   Thomas R. Drinkard

 

Today I am thankful for  …

  1. the cool touch of a November morning
  2. the quiet anticipation of holiday chaos
  3. the blessing of time and stories shared with friends.

For what are you thankful?

  1. This Monday morning I am thankful:

    1) For old fashioned party invitations and classic memories.
    2) That the camera fits just right against my hand and feels at home there.
    3) When you know people are close in your heart even if the world you share must be silent.

  2. a beautiful morning and I’m truly thankful for
    – being here to see it and being able to share it
    – for friends who share my likes and passions, or at least don’t mind me going on about them
    – hugs, virtual or otherwise

  3. One last chance to talk.

    One last crazy idea.

    One last purpose.

  4. 1) A few coworkers who I’m convinced work twice as hard as I do
    2) Feeling better on a Monday after a weekend being sick
    3) Seeing once again that while we may spend a lot of time in a virtual world, we do blur the lines so very much and do have real impacts on real lives.

  5. 1) The opportunity to make things right
    2) Chances to say “I love you”
    3) Knowing an angel who died too young

  6. This week I am grateful for the generosity of a friend, which resulted in:

    1) a short work week
    2) a holiday shared, though I’m on the wrong side of the border
    3) seeing everyday things through new eyes
