Truly Grateful – A Poem For Thanksgiving 2019

For many things I’m grateful,

one of them is health

I don’t need to leave it fateful

health to me means wealth.

**

Part of being wealthy is family and friends

having a home is also great to me

It’s important that love never ends

and that I’m truly safe and free.

**

So many people don’t have anything to eat

They barely have water and the bit they have is unclean

Where I live in nature is giving and still neat

I have clothes to wear and the grass is green.

**

I’m grateful for my education for the chances given to me

I’m thankful I can travel in planes and in my car

How glad I am that I have music, I can hear and I can see

that I have my dreams, moon and sun and wind and star.

**

Life has given me so much to thank for

civilization, technology, a home and pets

what else do I need, what to I want more?

I am lucky, with me and my three cats.

**

It’s time for saying prayers

to be thankful and feeling blessed

And to send our thanks to the One

and see them properly addressed.

Back To Fall

As soon as it’s November
the pumpkins will be gone
the skeletons are in the attic
free of ghosts is our lawn.

**

For a moment there is silence
in peace, our life can stay
for just one small and little moment
before the next big holiday.

**

Enjoy the break and get your strength
you will need it you will see.
Go for walks enjoy the season
be relaxed, and smile, feel free.

**

But first of all, before the break
We need to work and take a beat
to get us through the pumpkin time
and play the trick or treat!

Thanksgiving Poem By Larry Sells

Larry Sells, one of the participants in this year’s Halloween Poem contest, has provided us with a wonderful Thanksgiving poem. I decided to publish it here on ‘Writer’s Treasure Chest’ as a guest post. Thank you very much, Larry.


Family Gathering
Food on the table.
Words of love enter hearts.
Hugs give support.
Tears of joy are wiped
off with love. Families
grow and get smaller.
Love becomes a tradition.
Love is more important
than what’s on the table.
The hugs, kisses, warm people’s
hearts and souls. Gratitude gets shared.
Peace joins us all; one person at a time.

Happy Thanksgiving 2017

Once again, it’s Thanksgiving, November 23, 2017, a day to be grateful for many things, probably too many to count. But I’ll try it anyway:

 

What I’m thankful for today:

My health, a bit in my bank account, the bestestest sister on Earth, Good Friends, my Californian Mom, my Freedom, , the chance to travel, my kitties and the opportunity to have them…

A roof over my head, a bed to sleep in, food on the table and coffee in the morning…

My ability to think, to learn from mistakes, my education, having a home, the talent to write, my humor, my safety, the chance to expand my life and move…

My car, sunshine, birds, clean water, my cell phone, books, the chance to go to the doctor when needed, holidays, time, work, entertainment, warm clothes, music…

Flowers, rainbows and tears, snow, all my working senses (yes, including the common sense), my mind, my memory…

Hugs, touches and the sensitivity to cry…

… and of course: life.

First Signs of the New Season – Fall 2016

September has come, days cooling down

We often feel a breeze now, wafting through town.

Sunlight gets weaker and the trees lose their leaves

We start wearing boots and our T-Shirts get sleeves.

**

Grass turns brown and often it rains

Autumn cools the blood in our veins.

Nature changes colors, green turns into red

Yellow, brown and orange are the colors ahead.

**

Soon enough towards end of the summer

We start staying inside, what a bummer!

The green grass replaced by pumpkin patches

Candles and lamps are lit up with matches.

**

Halloween draws nearer, is just ahead of us.

We search for hoods, caps and gloves no reason for fuss.

As fun this season gets, the heat is amiss

To keep us warm very often, is only a kiss.

**

And on one day, before we’re even aware,

Towards the end of the year, we’re sure getting there.

Families prepare, laugh and steer

To the Thanksgiving feast, how quick it was here!
