Writing Prompt: Thankful Free Verse

Writing prompt Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks (nothing like stating the obvious, eh?) What are you grateful for?

Write a free-verse poem expressing gratitude for something. If you aren't sure what "Free Verse" is, Wikipedia describes it this way: Free verse (also at times referred to as vers libre) is a term describing various styles of poetry that are not written using strict meter or rhyme, but that still are recognizable as poetry by virtue of complex patterns of one sort or another that readers will perceive to be part of a coherent whole.

In rough and simple terms, decisions about what meter and rhyme to use (or not use) is entirely at the author's discretion.
