Thoughts of Thanks

  • READ POEM
    Thanks also for children sounds
    Thanks also for children sounds singing in laughter somewhere unseen. for an injured neighbor able to listen
  • READ POEM
    Thanks also for a Mississippi house
    More lines from a thank you note... Thanks also for a Mississippi house, for each swing and slide and tree tied rope we raced to on arrival. Mostly thanks to her for each embrace, for teaching us to sing. For training us to become less afraid and how to make a karo pecan pie. Thanks for every story of cattle drives, of how daddy became the mule's master. Thanks for each cousin who came near to play. Thanks for a twisting road back to Memphis. Many thanks.

    A thank you to the sounds
    More lines from a thank you note... Thanks also for the sounds of children singing in laughter some where unseen. For an injured neighbor able to listen and two silent cats tentative and still. Thanks for soft sunlight and memory of rain for memory of mother alone in her yard. Thanks for a beloved brown shawl sometimes around my shoulder in deepest night. Thanks for radiant musicians. for those who dance the night away. Many thanks,

    Thank you for the memories
    More lines from a thank you note... Thanks for the not so empty box left behind by dad and lost until today for sister's uniform neatly folded there thanks also for his worn leather harnesses and for one saddle empty since his departure for all his photographs bound in books thanks for Paul McCartney singing Hey Jude for Hyde Park's thousands of waving singers thanks for dad driving us to coldwater while we sing 'mr froggy went a courting' Many thanks

    Another thank you note
    More lines from a thank you note... Thanks also for last night's bright rounded moon for circumstance to cease all and see such incredible indescribable beauty for a time to have almost no thought of me for deep breath and stillness thanks for three pieces of pecan pie found in the fridge left behind from last night for two small girls in California and for when we sometimes talk for Sir Paul and Billy Joel Many thanks
