Thanksgiving Words When We Need Them

Autumn Leaves ©2011 Nicolino Sapio

Words When We Need Them
Before this early moment,
another, ripe with rain,
the scent of its own full shape.
Each day the rooster
we have never seen
raises the first greeting
and darkness which holds us
in its loose pocket all night
sets us down.
Now we walk,
waking up rooms,
switching on lights.
Into the breath,
wordless but ripe
with all possible words,
messages not yet gathered
or sent.
Morning looms,
more friend than
the best friend.
We could still say.
~Naomi Shihab Nye
from “The Red Suitcase”
Gratitude is the memory of the heart.  ~Jean Baptiste Massieu, translated from French
In Thanksgiving for Beloved Gaza. The Children of Gaza and their families are continually in our hearts and prayers.
