Thanksgiving | Geoff Oelsner

A photo of crepuscular rays over a large lake. There are rolling mountains in the distance. There is a poem titled "Thanksgiving" by Geoff Oelsner (For the November 14, 2022 Poetry of Nature group) "Thank you is a cup I lift to toast us:/Thank you for our gathering/Thank you for appearing here this year/for showing your Original Face/for sharing the view from your window beyond time and space/for our common life-breath--/our life-bread and thread of connection/for warmth we feed ourselves and silence when we meet/for transparencies we travel when we share the words we've written/Thank you for our gathering/for the spokes of its joy raying out on behalf of the Whole."
