Turkeys and Thankfulness

Tomorrow the Turkey is supreme bird by virtue of appearing on tables
more than any other . A turkey is a delicious meal, but it is also a noble creature when one sees it wild in the woodlands. We can be thankful for the taste of it, but when we see it through a smattering of snowflakes racing over the hill we are thankful for the sight of it. The turkeys crammed together in the local turkey farm deny it the beauty of the chase by the winds along the edges of our sight.

I will be eating turkey. Tomorrow the consumption is almost tribal.
But other days the thanks I give is for the turkey living. It is a bird that we can honor.

About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
