A California Thanksgiving

Fine gauze wraps
the Bay area
early on
Morning unfolds
what memory
held hidden
Knowing with certainty
the peaks, terraces and valleys
until the sun
dislodges the known world
revealing splendor.

Our family gathered there
Each knowing each
the old ones
amateurs all
with fuzzy memories
Scaling the mountain trails
riding the back roads with laughter
at our heels

Busy hands molding pies
quick breads and stuffing
remembering moldings and high
Scenes of our own
peaks and pratfalls
wrapped in a silver lining
or a shroud
Stunned into now
by the new generation
revealing splendor
