My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

November 24, 2010 “Thanksgiving Day”

“Thanksgiving Day”


Be thankful

that’s what it’s all about, we try to attain

the state of mind , we seek to obtain

on this Thanksgiving Day


Thank you

is easily said or thought at the least

as we stand at the head of a bounteous feast

on this Thanksgiving Day



in a land of plenty is well understood

but it slips our minds more often than it should

on this Thanksgiving Day


To know true Thankfulness

is to find the peace to lift empty hands

at the head of a barren table in a desolate land

and say…Thank You

on this Thanksgiving Day

To each of my friends across this small world,

whether you’re American or not,

I wish the happiest and most blessed

Thanksgiving Day

Sincerely, Tracy Harris

  4. Tracy, it’s so fabulous to see you expanding on the topics you cover with poetry.

    Wonderful sentiment here.

    And totally agree with: but it slips our minds more often than it should.

    Hope you had a fabulous day.

    Another wonderful header. A stunner. Thanks! 🙂
