A Song Of Thanksgiving

Mamakat's Prompt: Write a poem about something you're thankful for this Thanksgiving. Okay. I'll give it a shot. Nobody said that it has to be a good poem!

I am blessed, and rightly thankful, for the many treasures in my life.
I gather my blessings close to my heart, like little candles, to light my way in the darkness.

The smell of coffee drifting up the stairs, a siren's song
A cat sitting on my pillow, demanding breakfast
The joyful sounds of my son, playing a knight, or a hero
My husband's voice.

A cloud in the shape of an angel's wing high in the morning sky
The surprise of a favorite song playing on the radio
Watching my brother's children grow tall and wise
Sunday dinners with the family.

A cat curled on top of the printer while I type
An ocean full of stars in the night sky
The smile of a sleepy child after a long day
"I love you, Mama".

And waking up to this day, snuggled together, my husband, my son, and I
My heart overflows.


  1. Many reasons to make your heart overflow.
    Wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Sniff, Sniff.

  5. I think it's lovely. :-) The best poems are the ones that come from the heart, and pull our hearts along with when we read. This one did that for me! I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving.
