this thanks I give

over heavy-laden heads and hands

clenched

fingers red-white as they shake together.

watching the aged crown of white stammer,

tell me of your lifestory and cry proudly

over your grandchild’s hand,

his blue eyes are yours.

Thanksgiving

I am thankful for home – my home that is defined by wherever I count dearest at this point in time – which for me is where my family is.

Oh Uganda, May God Uphold Thee.
