Turkey Day

I call it Turkey Day.

Not because I have nothing to be thankful

for, or even because I like turkey best

–pumpkin pie and crescent rolls compete for the victor–

but because we ought to be thankful most days,

shouldn’t we?

Not every day, that’s excessive.

Some days are terrible

and best let to fade

but there are all kinds of wonder and kindness and laughter

to treasure and remember. And if we only do that one day

when we’re reminded to, so many thanks will go unthought

unsaid

unrepaid.

Thanks to all of you, for reading, commenting, and just being you. It’s great knowing there are so many bibliophiles and writers out there!

 

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.

    Well said, Caitlin. Or maybe, well-versed? 🙂 I agree, there is always, always something to be grateful for, and yet, we so seldom stop to say thank you. You’ve inspired me to write a new poem myself. Maybe even this afternoon! 🙂

    We spent yesterday afternoon with Nicki and her family, and it was lovely. Didn’t take a single picture, though. DOH! Too busy having fun, I guess. Missed my kids, though. 😦 But thankful for friends who are honorary “family,” anyway.

    Happy belated Thanksgiving to you, AND happy belated birthday, as well. I was doing so good there, and then I went and forgot to keep track of dates! Still, I hope it was a fun one!
