Love and Other Commas on Thanksgiving Day

celebration-thanksgiving-dinner-poem

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.
