Thanksgiving prayer

Thank you
my Lord and God
for gift of life and health
remembering our lost loved ones
once more.

Heed not
our weaknesses,
teach us how to forgive
and live in harmony with all

So that
once more this world
of hate will be again
a place of love and peacefulness,

As always, you show your beautiful heart through your words.
Thank you for your heart of thankfulness.
May your sweet spirit be inspiration for many, many others.
Love and blessings to you Victor!

Thank you very much for your kind words Susan. I have so many blessings to be thankful for including life and health, in spite of the inevitable setbacks in my life. The essence of my poem is the brotherhood of all people irrespective of race or creed. And that goes along well with my daily vow to make at least one person smile.

Thank you very much Gillena for visiting and for your kind words. That's a cinquain sequence which I wrote a while back and rescued it from my notes. Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. Ours was held in one of my daughter's place. Lots of food and fun...
