Holidays I like best
are those that are not
human made. Solstice
and equinox, full moon 
and new. Eclipse, comet
shower, timekeepers
common to all through 
time and geography.

There are exceptions
of course. Unless I am
dead asleep Thanksgiving
comes every day. How
could it not when my
backyard garden, my
beloved painter and 
poetry keep taking turns
saving my life?
