Giving Thanks

Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.

Albert Einstein


Wet Red Leaf

storm wind gusts
shakes leaf from its anchor
it falls, giving thanks

Note: Happy Thanksgiving to those in the United States, and Happy Fall to everyone else. This was inspired by the air spirits in the Carpe Diem #611 Haiku challenge, Sylph.

  1. Thank-you Brenda, I was wondering what to post tonight, and if you won’t take offence at some similarity, you have inspired a poem and photo in return for the lovely offerings which have graced your page this day. Thus, first writer, and now muse.


  2. I hope we will always go beyond. I feel many of my friends and family try to do so. It is the world, I am sometimes in doubt of, Brenda.
    I wished to come over and offer my heartfelt wishes for you and your family to have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I have one more post and two more days of work until I go up for 4 days to be with my siblings and mother. I hope your kids and your father have some ice cream on their warmed up pie! Smiles, Robin


  3. Hey there sweet Pink Brenda! I love this Happy Thanksgiving to you and your sweet precious family! We’ve been busy and trying to catch up still. Blessings and love to you sweet friend! 💗💗


  4. I think we are having our Indian Summer – it is 67 F or about 19 C. I made Little Miss (16 months old now – I kept thinking she was only 14 months but I wasn’t adding correctly) walk quite a bit after her breakfast. She more or less demanded lunch before getting sleepy again. So I put her in the stroller after an early lunch and took her out. She was ‘out’ within minutes…

    Happy Autumn and a wonderful Thanksgiving to you and yours.
