(A Thanksgiving Poem)
It is our tradition to gather as family
to renew and celebrate our bond;
to offer a prayer to the spirit
that connects heaven and earth.
For we are bound, not only
to each other, to elements
of the universe: sun and moon,
our brother and sister;
fruits of trees, grasses of prairies
nourish and sustain us.
They transform energy of stars
into sustenance of life
and through our veins pulses
the heat of cosmic creation.
