I am thankful in retrospect,
For the blessings on this God given Earth.
To have transcended to a planetary space and returned,
God's blessings continue.
The autumn days and nights,
Forever a beautiful memory.
Walks amongst the pines and maples,
The beauty of nature surrounds us.
A scampering squirrel gray or black,
Exquisite blue jays, with spread wings,
Sounds of Nature.
A Thanksgiving cornucopia,
Filled with fresh fruits,
Placed on a Thanksgiving table.
Shared with relatives and companions,
Delicous foods prepared for this day.
Days of living with excellence,
Thankful to a forever cxaring God.
