A Thanksgiving Prayer

by Charles Albano

To the God
who gave me
eyes to see the creation,
a taste for mystery,
a love of nature,
and respect for truth,
and who kept me alert through
touch, motion, color, form, texture and diversity--
thank you.

You sent me
love and peace,
and you gave me
wonder and intuition.

Thank you
for setting before me
these vast playgrounds
and for faithfully replenishing
this banquet table
of endless inquiry.

If fortune permits,
I hope to tidy up my table
and leave a small contribution
