I’m thankful for a lot…

I'm thankful for a lot of things today -- mostly the people in my life. Also for e.e. cummings, even though he might have meant the poem below in a different way than I end up taking it. In any case, Happy Thanksgiving!

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday;this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings:and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any--lifted from the no
of allnothing--human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
