Poetry

Teach Write has got me
writing gratitude haikus:
it’s reviving me.

Ella Lyon’s book’s
gone unread on my shelf, but
now’s its time for me.

Which led my mind to
my Poetry subscription:
high-minded wasteland.

I cancelled, and bought
instead, Oliver, Collins,
and Julie L. Moore.

Husband listened as
I talked poetry, then asked
how it solves problems.

Gratikus provoke
gratitude in me – help me
see and innovate.

Poetry, done right,
could show us the Kingdom way –
show the King has come.

During the month of November, I will be joining Teach Write in the #Gratiku challenge, in which we write and share a gratitude haiku (or other poemish piece) every day in November. I may not write every day, but I will certainly try my best.

If you’re a teacher of writers (or a writer… don’t have to be a teacher) and you’re looking for a supportive group of other writers to encourage you along your writing journey, check out Teach Write.
