THIS IS A YEAR OF THE HORSE CONTEST ENTRY

Thanksgiving Prayer

Published by EIJI | Friday, November 07, 2014 12:35 PM


November's a good time to reflect on the passing year and to thank Him above allowing us to partake of His bounty...word count 124...something I penned few turkeys ago... year of the horse entry


Fall's air settling cold outside
swirling Autumn's leaves around
Cirrus clouds in nippy blue
from drying cornfields cawing sound.

Laughter comes from little ones
at a scarecrow's crooked hat
Kinfolk gathering around
with hot ciders in hands they chat.

Late afternoon shadows long
cabin's door closing behind
The hearth's warm flickering flames
embraces like a curling vine.

Roasted turkey fills the air
flavored with sweet pumpkin pies
Greens, mashed russets, and corn cobs
watering mouths of hungry eyes.

Cranberries in sauces sit
plum pudding will surely sate
Gravy and dutch oven rolls
while grace is said they sit and wait.

Young and old with hands enjoined
hear praying words sent above
A bowed head from table's end
humbly thanks for His grace and love...
