Thanksgiving Morning, Memories, and Reflections

The morning sun bright against the foreign wall

A lone goose flies south ahead of the approaching cold

Glimpses of trees gold and red

Breaking the edge of the window

This house of my friend rests just above

So many memories good and bad filtering in

Years have past, lives changed,

Grown children returning for the feast

The absent daughter’s room shared for the time

Her books left scattered and welcoming

“The KGB Bar Book of Poems” catches me unaware

It draws me in to another time,

A time of innocence and reflection

Of youth, with it enduring optimism for life’s possibilities

A life lost in the pursuit of more material things

Now gone in an instant

Poetry was a gift that invaded in waves that ebbed and flowed

The universal spirit of reflection hovering in the background

Waiting to flow thru another

Poets are just the conduits

The sensitive ones who feel its presence

Putting pen to page, they write thru me now and then

Eons of poems passed on from one generation to the next

This Jillian of my friend are you the next?

Artist's Description

“The KGB Bar Book of Poems” catches me unaware
It draws me in to another time,
A time of innocence and reflection
Of youth, with it enduring optimism for life’s possibilities

Other Worlds is a picture I created that has a complementary feeling to this poem.
