Thanks to Give

Give thanks to him who made the heavenly lights— His faithful love endures forever. — Psalm 136:7

I see the noon sun

through a favorite tree,

this bur oak that is letting 

loose leaves and acorns,

returning humus

to the earth, a cycle

of renewal which requires

rest, and these changing

leaves and thinning trees

remind me all living things

must endure change,

and even in the most

trying of circumstances

I pause and find peace

in the essential truth

of living: we rise and meet

the day and every challenge

because we are loved,

and we have thanks to give.
