A Thanksgiving Poem: "For the Silent and Small"

0 comments
 
Here are some thoughtful words as a thanksgiving poem written this week by my friend and coworker, Kristan McKinne. Officially it is yet untitled but I am calling it "For the Silent and Small". Enjoy and give thanks.

In life's everday slow rise and fall,
awash in our ball of bright and shining sun
I find ways to give thanks for the silent and small.


When shadows tower so tall
that all glimpse of light is gone
from life's everyday, slow rise and fall - 


when it can seem after all
that the rush of comings and goings has won -
I still have to give thanks for the silent and small.


Thanks for the single smile that will crawl
across your face; that's enough in the long run
of that everyday, slow rise and fall.


And here, with you, in the silent lull
that settles after a long day done,
it's easy to give thanks for the silent and small.


To just consider the tiny moments that sprawl
through a life, vast and deep as the ocean,
adrift in the everyday slow rise and fall - 
I have to give thanks for the silent and small.
