Thanksgiving Haiku

So fellow travelers, walking the dog after an early Thanksgiving dinner, I caught the gorgeous colors of today’s sunset. While it’s early onset (we went out at 4:30pm) reminds me we will soon be walking in the darkness and cold of winter,  today we walked in 60 degree sunshine, a gentle breeze carrying the sound of songbirds thought to have migrated weeks ago.  It was a wondrous sweet walk, bringing peace to soothe the heartache of too many empty chairs around our table this year.

I have so much to be thankful for. A rewarding job, a safe home, the time and resources to help others in need and most of all the love of family both near and far. I speak of family both by blood and by bond for my creative friends have become as precious to me as those I have known for a lifetime. It is a gift to find acceptance and encouragement and uplifting to be inspired by creative authenticity. I strive to pass it forward.

So a haiku of Thanksgiving dedicated to everyone seeking Light and Joy.



Our collective hearts

Light up the sky with colors

Of hope, joy and peace.



Walk gently on the path my friends and may adventure find you ready.
