You Are Thankful

You Are Thankful

You are thankful for the smoke of stars
that twirled itself into the ones you love
and whirled itself into the sun that rises
daily to yodel at the blue plumbago.
You are thankful for the rivers of pancake batter
pouring from the Big Dipper into your frying pan,
then through your veins to the leaves of your hands
tapping out fortune cookie whispers on the wind.
You are thankful for these miracles of molecules
dog paddling happily from friendship shore to
shore, to alight on sunset beaches where we all
will be dancing and laughing together forever.
