On Thanksgiving Day

20180707_164603

As we prepare our feasts, bake our pies,

give our homes a warm glow

may we always remember

our own lights within

to encourage, to lift up

our neighbors.

May no one

feel alone.

We are not

unconnected.

The Last Snowflake

100_5379

Only a few flakes swirl now, meandering towards the earth

as winter loses its battle, green shoots stand at attention,

while in the silence, the sun pulls away

the clouds,

and the last snowflake

melts on the petal

of a daffodil.
