Schooled in the Art of the Blessing

Out on Thanksgiving Day

For a walk from the Airbnb

Near  a golf course

In Greensboro, North Carolina,


I address an oncoming stranger

With a driver in his hand:


Happy Thanksgiving.


Happy Thanksgiving.

Grace and peace 

Be with you.


Thank you.


No:

When I say, “‘Grace

And peace be with you,’

You say, ‘Grace

And peace be with you.’”


OK.  

Grace 

And peace be with you.


For some, thanksgiving is not enough;

There must be grace and peace also.

For others, they are the same


As the sun shines on a found poem

And a heron alights from the water trap

To land on a log near a pond

As old as god.
