A Day Of Thanksgiving Poem by Savita Tyagi

A Day Of Thanksgiving

Rating: 4.9


Thanks for beautiful blue skies
Thanks for fragrant air silently filling the garden
Thanks for colorful fall leaves
Swirling and dancing through air even in their demise
The smell of earth mingled with scent of life
Still emitted from fallen leaves
Thanks for crisp afternoon sunshine
Filtering through bare trees
Thanks for little birds’ morning chorus-
Busy squirrel’s ritual of nibbling on acorns
And depositing some underground
Thanks for my ears and my eyes to be able to watch
This wondrous sight
Thanks for my family and friends
Most of all thanks for this happy state of mind
Receptive to the simple joys of the day
I need not know whom to thank-
It is enough to know that I have so much to be thankful for.

I loved reading those lines. The day we learn to say thanks we share happiness and the day we learn to say sorry we get peace in life.

The case of the world around us is a mixed pack of good and evil and so is the case with the bounty of striking beauty and bewildering phases of natural disasters.Though it is rather an optimistic note than an observation of balanced comprehension, the poem is rich with apt diction and great levels of positive upsurge of thoughts immaculate.
