Thanks Giving

This poem of mine seems too fitting not to share this week. Enjoy!

Thanks Giving

I am thankful for
heavy rains
that have made us look like gardeners.
For make-a-wish flowers
that have sprung up
as fast as my wishes;
I have never thought them weeds.
For two naughty cats
who get underfoot
as often as they keep me on my toes.
For friends as dependable
as the day’s end.
For family tumultuous,
scattered like stray acorns,
gathered yearly.
For this house,
more than material,
more than design.
And for you, my love,
always for you.
