The Deepest Thread – A Thanksgiving Poem

Submitted by the Vita Brevis Team!

Steaming pots and plates are passed
Down the table, as if down the generations:
From a grandmother to her son,
From a father to his daughter.

Through their veins courses similar blood,
In their eyes shines a similar glean,
Of the deepest thread ever sewn:
The thread of family.
