I’m not a religious person, but many people I treasure are very religious, and I’m always
grateful for their prayers and their generosity of spirit. Joy Harjo’s “Eagle Poem” gives me a way to think about prayer that is comforting and uplifting without listing toward the dogmatic.
For that reason, I think “Eagle Poem” is the perfect poem for Thanksgiving week, when we give thanks in our own ways, both secular and spiritual, for what we have and what we have not.

Oh, I love this. Something so simple and basic in our homes and yet it is everything. Thanks for sharing, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

That is a perfect poem for Thanksgiving. Table fellowship is my favorite kind. Have a wonderful Turkey Day.
Can’t say I know what table fellowship is, but it sounds nice 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving to you too!
