ghazal: Weikert July 2014

There’s no wifi, points don’t matter
But before each meal
We pause to give thanks

Fallen tree diverted the trail
Along shaded rail line
Where folks gave thanks

Infant music box conjures
Ice cream, grass stained fun
And fire flies giving thanks

Intense or cursive the
Fire circle discussion
Solves enough to give thanks

Joy of sewing triumph fades
Quickly with news of three
Sleeping so well to give thanks

Juggling cans, crossing over
Monkey bridge where laurel
Line the path saying thanks

Composed in Weikert, PA

My oatmeal
To cook it
Would be good
To turn on

Wind sock pegged
Straight out
Barely budding
Trees swaying
Stray leaf dances
Down the path

Walk in fear
Of finding
Icy surface
In the shade

Temp, wind and
Moisture combine
for a flurry
Of action and
Joy when cleared
