Love and Other Commas on Thanksgiving Day


Thanksgiving day is fast approaching and here I am offering Poetry Friday post this week, a lighthearted poem about the Thanksgiving flagship dinner and family celebration–good food and enjoying moments, a day to give thanks filled with love, happiness and wine.

Come in and touch someone’s heart this Thanksgiving season.


Love and Other Commas

Grandma craves

your endearing presence,


better than

sugared peaches,


coffee in the morning,

or scented candle burning.


Timeless gratitude

is more so satisfying


than tender pumpkin pies,

savory roasted turkey,


candied cranberries,

and crisped, breaded veggies.


On Thanksgiving day,

poetry’s eager heart


lifts everyone’s spirit,

boasts caramel-y sweetness,


endless yearning

of magnificent life,


while chewing pecan nuts,

laughter and soft music


translate to love

and other commas.
