Bountiful

Around the table
All together, holding hands
Closed eyes, and bowed heads

For all His bountiful gifts

Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless us Everyone!

COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS

When Jack Frost is abroad
And the Thanksgiving snow falls
When we hear the first sleigh bell’s ring
Christmas isn’t far away at all
So make those lists and join the throng
Of happy shoppers down at the mall

Thanksgiving Wishes

I'm wishing on this Thanksgiving day,
That we all take the time to pray
For those who aren't with us here,
But are in our hearts all the year
Know we're sending you lots of love,
Cause every day you're thought of


Short Thanksgiving poem by ilene bauer| Details |

T-Day Plus One

A turkey gets stuffed
And so do we
And that’s Thanksgiving
To a T.

For overeating’s
De rigueur
Since that is what
A feast is for.

The food left over
Might entice,
But there’s no need
For gorging twice!


Short Thanksgiving poem by India Bryant| Details |

Thanksgiving

Turkey and stuffing
Corn and muffins
pies and cakes
Grandma makes... 
how good the taste
Thankfulness, gratefulness
Oh what joy it brings
smiles and hugs
laugter and love
Oh look what Thanksgiving Holiday can bring!


Short Thanksgiving poem by Veronica Joseph| Details |

Firelight

we danced in that room
to firelight 
skin silk slipping
under my hands

with each flicker 
we turned together
and I held you
enchanted
lovewords
in my hair

a prayer
in a moment of glory
and thanksgiving
for you.


Short Thanksgiving poem by randy johnson| Details |

Thankful on Thanksgiving

Today is Thanksgiving, what are you thankful for?
I'm thankful for my health, my cats and more.
When we think of stuff to be thankful for, it makes us happier instead of sadder.
Don't eat too much turkey or you'll get fatter.


Short Thanksgiving poem by Robert A. Dufresne| Details |

God's Special Creation

Breathed into your hair,
An everlasting prayer,
While you slept soundly.

I awoke to find,
Our bodies and souls entwined,
In love  profoundly.

Breathed into your hair,
A thanksgiving prayer,
While you slept softly.



Short Thanksgiving poem by Betim Muco| Details |

Myself

I’ve never liked myself
I always wanted to be different 
From what I am
But what I am 
Was my destiny 
And I have lived with it
 
How good for those who don’t have this feeling 
They march like satisfied turkeys
Toward Thanksgiving Day. 


Short Thanksgiving poem by Brian Strand| Details |

THE WAY OF ALL TURKEYS

thanks

Short Thanksgiving poem by randy johnson| Details |

Day of thanks

I thought that my Thanksgiving would be ruined because my cat ran away.
But he returned last night and I give thanks for that today.
I'm thankful for God, my health, my parents and my cat.
My kitty is heavier than a chunk of lead because he's fat.


Short Thanksgiving poem by Ema Anderson| Details |

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving day we pray
With a lot to say
The warmth of a home
Which has a tone
Everyone being together
Forever and ever
The food fills us up
With all the cups
We give thanks
With no mistake
Happy Thanksgiving to all
With many more to call


Short Thanksgiving poem by Adell Foster| Details |

It's That Time Let's Feast (Epulaeryu)

(Gathering of thankful family and friends)
 
Time for a Thanksgiving feast
Hope you’re all hungry
There’s stuffed turkey finely browned,
pineapple glazed ham, salads,
Collard greens, hot breads…
Yam pudding, bundt cakes, 
Pies, and more		
Eat!


Short Thanksgiving poem by John Taylor| Details |

Halloween Haiku (for Linda-Marie the sweetheart of P.S.'s contest)

Halloween Haiku
(9.7.10)

Suburban parade:
A night to transform yourself,
and beg without shame.

Subsequent morning:
Pillowcases wear make up-
Wrappers and trinkets.

The Thanksgiving porch:
Mouth with one neglected tooth-
The jack-o-lantern.


Short Thanksgiving poem by Matthew Anish| Details |

Still Around

I had cancer a while back 
and  at last year's  Thanksgiving I threw a football and I 
could barely send it a couple of feet
After a tasty Thanksgiving feast 
this year I picked up a mini football
and played catch for about 45 minutes
And man, did that feel good!


Short Thanksgiving poem by T.A. Skyles-Theoklapoet| Details |

"THE FINAL DAYS OF SUMMER"

The grass is changing and leaves are falling from the trees.
This is the end of September and it's almost Halloween.
The day for families togather is comming real soon.
Thanksgiving day is in Nov.and we all eat around noon.
                    Teresa Skyles

Short Thanksgiving poem by Tahera Mannan| Details |

Autumn

Trees green to yellow
Then comes orange and red
Fusion of colours
Halloween and Thanksgiving
Heralding festive season

Harvest time for all
Fresh fruits and veggies abound
Pumpkins rich and ripe
Ready to be hand decorated
Tricks and yummy treats savoured


Short Thanksgiving poem by Joy Wellington| Details |

Of Rain And Thanksgiving

Pearly drops of rain
Glistening on Autumn’s leaf
The gurgling of water down the storm drain
Not far away is Christmas Eve.  

Just before Christmas, there is Thanksgiving
A time to praise and thank the Lord
That we are still among the living
Let us share of what we have stored
