Giving Thanks

Giving Thanks

by Carl Josehart

the right of way
cannot be
taken
only given
my driving instructor was
want to say

the same with thanks
it seems
gratitude
like the right of way
cannot be taken
only given

thanks
like driving
involves yielding
stopping
detouring
traveling roads that
dead end
to others
to fate

thanks
like prayer
cannot wait
until you are in the mood
you have to do it
to get in the mood
it lifts you
even when you don’t know you’ve
fallen

it is like love
thanks, I mean
it’s what you give
when all you have to give
is not enough
and grows the fastest
when freely given away
