(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.
