11.23 …touche… CD 610

every Thanksgiving
the table transforms; faces, plates
location and time

some will not return
how can we tell them that we
believe they are here

the young ones fidget
unable to comprehend
the important dance

as they learn to jump
try to defy gravity
with all of their might

yet they are thankful
to be caught by loving arms
before reaching ground
