Best Thanksgiving

We have missed Thanksgiving with our son for a long time. It was time. Long past time. It was the best Thanksgiving ever.

We stayed in a hotel
That felt wrong
From the beginning.
No details here.
The dinner at the pricey restaurant
Had no turkey
On the menu,
Nothing with cranberries
The portions were small.
We left hungry.
We laughed at the bill.
The next day
We ate like kings and queens,
Sat at the bar
And watched the son
And brother
In his element.
Black Friday
Was not Black.
It offered a spectrum
Of white light
Every color
Of the rainbow
And then some.
It was the best Thanksgiving
