At the (Thanksgiving) table . . .

Crudités:
deviled eggs and sweet pickles–
birdsong at window

family stew: individual servings from a shared receipt

the sauce, the dressing,
the words passed down the table–
blessings . . .

Happy Thanksgiving!

About Margaret Dornaus

I’m a writer and a teacher, as well as a haiku-doodler. I live in a beautiful woodland setting, surrounded by native oak forests, that inspires me to record haiku snapshots of luna moths and our resident roadrunner, and even an occasional black bear as it hightails it across the top of my road, my mongrel dog barking at its heels as I watch with wonder. My work as a travel writer has appeared in publications from The Dallas Morning News to the Robb Report. You can find examples of my travel writing–as well as excerpts from a travel memoir I’m working on–at my other WordPress site, Travelin’ On. What more than that do you need to know? Only that I started this blog with an eye toward collaboration. Got a haiku? Send it my way. . . . I’m all about new visions & voices. Best, Margaret

    And to you as well! Now these poems are making me hungry.

    • Thank you, Patti. I was feeling lighthearted when I wrote these, but not so much as the day wears on. Still, I am thankful for the day, my (absent-at-the-moment) family, and even the drizzle outside my window. And now, I think I”ll go make myself a good cup of tea!
