I Give Thanks ...

In this month of Thanksgiving ... a poem of gratitude from Harriett Kofalk (author of The Peaceful Cook):

Awakening in a moment of peace
I give thanks
To the source of all peace

As I set forth into the day
The birds sing with new voices
And I listen with new ears
And give thanks

Nearby
The flower called Angel’s Trumpet
Blows in the breeze
And I give thanks

My feet touch the grass
Still wet with dew
And I give thanks
Both to my mother earth
For sustaining my steps
And to the seas
Cycling once again
To bring forth new life

The dewdrops
Become jeweled
With the morning’s sun-fire
And I give thanks

You can see forever
When the vision is clear
In this moment
Each moment
I give thanks
