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
    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,

    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

    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,
