Celebrate This Week: Family

This week family and food captivated me. Seeing the next generation purposeful, educated, and resolute gives me great hope.  This week I celebrate family.

This Thanksgiving, they
were all in one room, and oh
what power I felt.

To reach out and touch
each one with a glance knowing
their hearts were beating.

Elders at the head
played the silent observers
of young energy.

Cleaning the kitchen
cousins’ words sparkle sprinkle
us. Found poetry.

Evening ends. Outside
chill creeps in as each soul gives
a goodbye love hug.

Overnight guests walk
into their old rooms, pull out
pillows, sheets, blankets.

This Thanksgiving, my
children sleep all in one house
remembered sweetness.
