Thanksgiving 2016     11/24/2016

Thanksgiving is a human joy

we gather as kith and kin

sharing repast and remembrances

as I sit lake side

bundled against cold autumn day

my heart thanks giving

for eagles, cormorants, gulls, crows and chickadees

I find like the striking eagle

I am hungry

but not for fish or food

I am hungry

wanting for all

peace, kindness, justice, equality, safety and fellowship

may the Creator grant us those sacred spaces

as we gather as kith and kin

sharing repast and remembrances
