peacocks and pinecones: my thanksgiving table


love 
love 
love
having thanksgiving in my home

the food
the smell
the company
the after-dinner walk around the hood

and of course 
the piece de resistance

the table
all dressed up and ready to 
par-tay

i have yet to set it
the same way 
two years in a row

i know
crazy to some

guess it feeds
my creative urges


 this year
it's 
peacocks 
and pinecones

maybe with a little
monogram thrown in for good measure
interested in past 
thanksgiving tables?

9 people
2 missing
both in a combat zone
protecting our freedoms


thankful
for the
loved ones i am surrounded by
and the table that's big enough 
to feed them


this is,
people,
my fave holiday
of 
all 
time

 kicks off
the season of giving
you see.


 and isn't that 
what life is all about?


tell me about how you celebrate
this glorious day
and of course
your table setting
and those you gather with
