A Walk With You

A walk in the woods...
The sun shines through the tree leaves...
My time with You, Lord...
Under trees, orange and yellow...
With the fresh cool breeze of fall...

first fall snow
what i’ve dreaded
all summer
august   september   and october
just flew right by

mid november snow
thanksgiving just three days away
christmas just a month
to hell with coffee
a shot of wild turkey

dear old mother
times are tough
no thanksgiving turkey
“go kill the chicken!”
she said with forced smile

thanksgiving dinner
so much to eat
i’m almost sick
but company wants a violin solo
deep burple

thanksgiving ham
no wings
no wishbone
I’m pissed
make drumsticks from knife and fork

it’s the holidays
when thoughts turn to those of food
not just any food
sweets are thrust from every side
candy    fruit cake    and apple pie

the list is endless
when I think how weak i am
it makes me shudder
doubtless i shall overeat
so i must set a limit

i hate my fat self
when I look in the mirror
40 pounds over
over what the weight chart says
high school weight days are over

what is sensible?
dare I make it 45
easy to lose 5
just think of the tasty fun
candy    fruit cake    and mince pie

egg nog    rich stuffing
that thanksgiving table spread
how my mouth waters
LOOK!    the lady on t.v. 
took off 50 with jenny

my god!    50 pounds!
why!    5 pounds would be a snap!
and now I’m resolved
i will sign with jenny
right after the holidays

Tanka Very Much

     Tanka Very Much

Thirst dries the desert

Drinking fills the passion depths

Girl trembles with cup

Water flows up from deep wells

More than thanks are on the lips

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!

spirit’s star blazes
angels slough caste to chorus
tongues of shepherds freeze
pride-twisted scripture withers
born clean is the King of Souls
