Tears Of Thanksgiving
Perfect pearl drops, one tear at a time, poised
On the tip of a bottlebrush pine needle
Beauty suspended for one timeless second
Awesome splendour surrounding the woodland scene ---
A mind weaned in joyful tranquility
Twinkling Christmas tree lights take this tree inside
Mounds of wrapped red and green gifts on carpets ---
One heart overflowing with thanksgiving bursts
Heartsobs of joy with the words 'so much, so much!'
Our eyelashes too glistened wet with tears.
