A Thanku for Thanksgiving

My Thanku is a thanks to the communities that have become a driving force in both my learning and growth as a teacher of writers. I would not be sprouting into the teacher I am without your kind words. It is truly gratifying!

Sprouts of happiness
Words collect sunshine and rain
Communities grow

Yesterday I heard about a two week challenge at Teaching Authors on Linda's blog Teacherdance.

Write a poem of thanks in any form, but haiku are especially welcome. I wrote one in the comments of a fellow blogger and from there wrote a new one to post here as my Thanku submission.
I hope you will submit your own Thanku and check out the roundup at Teaching Authors on November 30th!


  1. What a lovely Thanku, Betsy. Thanks so much for participating in our Two Weeks of Thanks-Giving, and for helping to spread the word.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

  2. Betsy, great idea! I wrote one on my blog as well! Happy Thanksgiving to you!

  3. Sorry I missed this earlier, Betsy, but thank you for the mention! I like your thanku and the metaphor of growing, simply said, but exactly true. Hope your Thanksgiving was a good one!

  4. Your Thanku reflects exactly how I feel about writing communities too!


Thanks for the comment love!
