Thanksgiving Prayer 2013

Karyn Indursky

Love warms our hearts

as together we pray

not to ask for help,

but to thank you for this day.


We thank you for

our friends, family, pets, writing

as they bloom like flowers

throughout the years.  


Love warms our ears

when we hear

how much we mean

to one another.


We thank you for

bringing us together

and uniting us is a blessing

like the smell of a rose.


Love warms our noses

as we stop to smell the blessings

instead of trudging on 

bye to our next destination.


We thank you for

touching our hearts

with the gifts of emotions

expressed in various ways.


Love warms our hearts

makes us feel each other's

hands for we hold onto

our strength, courage, friendship.


We thank you for

letting us see

not only our problems,

but heaps of blessings.


Love warms our hearts

as around the table

we sit to pray before

we feast to celebrate

one another and God.

Sailors are not allowed to shed tears Respected P_Eyes!!

Sailors are not allowed to shed tears Respected P_Eyes!! I've shed enough already so I sail on the salty sea where all that there is brine.I'm overwhelmed.


Karyn Indursky me has shed enough tears already

So now I 'm sailing on the salty seas facing sun & storm

The humble tears now shed silently ,, no witnesses

mingle with the primordial sea whose breeze oft caresses

...very nice I could love every day of the year.


...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
