The Great Thanksgiving

Take the great loaf of life
as if it is the last and greatest
wonderful paradox of the moment.

Offer thanks, awkwardly at first,
and then, perhaps, with more 
boldness since your soul remains.

Break open the bread as if all
the constrictions of the world
are nothing but whispy threads.

Give generously to all those who
have chosen to fall down after sensing
something greater than themselves.
