Thanksgiving in Canada-

Morris Island Autumn Long Ago

Morris Island Autumn Long Ago

Thanksgiving in Canada isn’t what it is in America but
all through and all over the Northern Hemisphere
we see the falling of the light
The dying of the day
The crops are in
And we eat apples
And Marvel at nature-
A Time of reflection
Contemplation and Such-
In My dappled choirboy youth
we sang a hymn
“We plough the fields and scatter
The good seed on the land
But it is fed and watered
By God’s almighty hand”

It’s an impossible hymn to sing
the range is multi octave
But the words,well the words
Give a sense of wonder
Nascent Hope before the looming Darkness
Of Ishmael’s November of the soul
Look at the Darkness below

Morris Island Autumn dark

Morris Island Autumn dark

There’s Plenty of Darkness ahead of us all
Till that Winter Solstice
I’ll be with anna dane janie, kyle, daniel
and janet my mother, age 88
I just wish each and every one of you who reads this
A good thanksgiving
And if yr lonesome- Get in touch
I’ll at least make you laugh
So I wrap myself in a plaid blanket
nigh on 100 years old
Oh Dear Friends
I have no siblings
But we have each other
That’s good enough for me
yr old friend
