Autumn Poem 1: Thanksgiving

October 9th, 2009

You are
Thanksgiving
in my arms

The turkey dinner, the lit candles,
the spiced stuffing, the wine
and pumpkin pie
the laughter, the easing one’s belt out a notch
the recline on the couch
the after dinner apple brandy
the tryptophan kicking in
the slow and golden
full bellied grateful
nodding off to
sleep.
