Sacred autumn

to behold the iridescence
of living souls
to remember the luminance
of those dead
when once they were
on life's sacred stage
where sometimes we might teeter . . .
and sit in the audience
. . .  i throw myself 
upon life's sacred stage
Every day is an opportunity for Thanksgiving. Thank you, Spirit, for a most wonderful reunion with cousin A., who is visiting from China for a few months.  Thank you for family, who take the time to share their generous love in feast and purposeful conversation.  With gratitude especially to Tita C. and Tito R. who hosted this evening's Thanksgiving.  To blessings and being active on the sacred stage of Life.
