A Thanksgiving (2009) Celebration - Poem by Walterrean Salley

Thanksgiving, appropriately hailed,
Is a tradition that has long prevailed.
Joining hearts to honor the day,
Celebrating in a grateful way.

Greeting the old, welcoming the new.
Embracing kinfolks—not a few.
Chatting, while putting names to faces.
And humbly bowing to sweet graces.

Then shooting photos—less we forget,
And the moments fade, and we regret.

    Thanks for giving thanksgiving a face lift and a poetic touch. Such celebrations
    will fine tune the human relationships otherwise torn by color creed caste
    racial religious and other earthy over tones Am I correct Salley?
