40 Days of Blogging Day 13: Eucharist as Great Thanksgiving

There are no thankful individuals
Thanksgiving requires participation
Something given and received
Someone gratiated without
Someone being ingratiating

Thanksgiving is something you eat
Something that eats you
Ingestion and digestion
Are gratitude's cause and effect
And both soul and body are nourished

Even savages are aware
Communion requires flesh
Co-mingled in gratitude
And it makes you one
With all of God and man

So come you thankful people
Come to harvest home
Soon we will be the sheaves
We will be the daily bread
The wine and water poured out
