Happy Thanksgiving day to all

Blog Posted:11/25/2021 6:23:00 AM

On this Thanksgiving day

Let's be thankful for healthy body,

food, clothing and shelter

Resolve to take care of same


On this Thanksgiving day

Let's express our gratitude to nature

For providing us means of subsistence

Resolve to take care of it


On this Thanksgiving day

Let's be grateful to family members

for accepting us as we are

adjusting to our idiosyncrasies

Loving us


On this Thanksgiving day

Let's be thankful to elements of nature

who fill surrounds with beauty, music

bestow joy


On this Thanksgiving day

Let's resolve to not merely thank others

but give back what we get

with love and gratitude


Let's resolve to make

every moment Thanksgiving

by counting our blessings

lead blissful, ecstatic life



On the occasion of Thanksgiving day I wish to express my gratitude to all my friends. 

It was only because of your help and support, I learnt many technical aspects of poetry.

May God bless you all with joy and happiness always

Oh, Rama... This is so sweet of you. It's not even Thanksgiving in India and yet you're so gracious in penning this poem. Because to people like us, who are thankful, every day is Thanksgiving.
