Around the table
All together, holding hands
Closed eyes, and bowed heads
As we give our thanks to God
For all His bountiful gifts

Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless us Everyone!

    Hello Carrie - I enjoyed the earnest simplicity of this tanka. It is all the more convincing for its lack of pretension. In ancient times in Japan, it was custom for lovers to exchange tanka. Here you have used the form to express another form of lover. Well done. (Being from South Africa, I do not follow the Thanksgiving custom, but I think it will be in order to wish you a Joyful Thanksgiving.)
