It's Tuesday, time for more poetry, and writing too. Thanks for stopping by!
L aughter round the table at Thanksgiving and
E veryone is here. I see them sitting, reaching for the wine,
F ixing napkins on laps, settling in to this hour of grateful
T houghts, reminding the kids to sit still, to put at least a few green beans
O n the plate, along with the mashed potatoes and gravy.
V ery soon, after bowl and platter passing, forks clink and words fling: how is
E veryone? What’s happening at school, at work, in your lives?
R ight now, in the midst of this big day, I grab a
S napshot of the time, saving the guests, the food, the words as my leftovers.
