A Thanksgiving Eve Blessing by Diane Pendola

 

Communion

Take and eat.
This is my body:

Light
turned green in tongues of grass,
turned flesh in grazing herds,
turned love in human hearts.

Take and drink.
This is my blood:
Life
rising in springs, flowing in rivers,
swelling the seas, salting your tears,
your veins full of me.

Take and eat
this sun and soil.
Take and drink
this wind and rain.

Re member me–
Light’s long journey out of Night,
Light’s long journey into Life.

Re member me–
Love’s dawn journey into Day.
