    Talk of aunt Lelia
    I walk the woods with daddy, holding baskets of fallen figs; gathered from the ground.

    Thanks for a thin tanned lady
    Thanks also for a thin tanned lady; and small girls who seek to ascend her garden’s gate. for a brown faced boy soon to travel alone

    Thank you to the little things
    More lines from a thank you note... And thanks for thin crusted pizza shared with a beautiful lady thanks for the quietness of this afternoon thanks that today's news makes me weep for the sound of sisters voice calling from the coast for memory of these trees before they became so tall thanks for the Andre Rieu choir and George Harrison singing my sweet lord for unrestrained anticipations for dreamless sleep Many thanks

    Thank you
    More lines from a thank you note... Thanks again for breeze stirred ginkgo leaves adrift in silence to the sunlit sidewalk; and for a yellow lawn. for twin cousins who come each year with great aunt Lilly; weighted down with pecan pie bread pudding; with oysters mosca and peanut butter cake. Thanks for another day, for time to listen. thanks for knowing to sit still and listen. for baby sisters who look like dad who looked like great grandmother. Thank you,
