Gratitude and Abundance & “On the Other Side of October” (Poem)

As we give thanks for all the abundance in our lives, I offer a few images from mine, in deepest gratitude for all we have, all we are, all we share.

On the Other Side of October

waits November’s dripping eaves,
low grey skies, winds, tumbling leaves.

After expanses of slate-colored days,
we gather tableside to offer praise.

Incise the crust of apple pie;
then fragrant incense lifts the sky.

Let’s raise our glasses and our hearts,
knowing that we have done our parts

to bring our glowing harvests in.
It’s time to celebrate! Begin!
