The Thursday Think Tank - #26 Thankfulness

It is chiefly through poetry that we enjoy our communion with superior minds…in the best poems, poets talk to us, give us their most precious thoughts, and pour their souls into our. God be thanked for poems.
~( Modified) William Ellery Channing

This week’s prompt is obvious, easy, and well worth the repetition. If you frequent prompt sites you may be just submitting one written for another which is perfectly fine.

What are you thankful for? What in your life makes your heart warm and worth your poetic words. This is a broad topic with no limitations so please shout to the top of…your paper and share with us what makes you give thanks.

There 3 simple rules:

1. Don’t link to more than 3 poems per week.

2. Please visit some of the other poems linked here when you link to yours.

3. Leave a comment after you have posted your link.


  1. Thankful for family, friends, and a job.

  2. Thankful to the Lord for His Greatest Art!

  3. Happy Thanksgiving to all folks at poets untied,
    you all rock!

  4. Happy Thanksgiving America! Little jealous, but still blessed.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving, all. I posted one from another season of gratitude and giving, but it seemed appropriate for today!

  6. I'm thankful for the support of this creative and inclusive community of poets...:)

  7. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
    We have so much to be grateful for.
    I will try for a poem, but for now a song from Johnny Cash.

  8. A very apt prompt. Enjoyed this one Robert.

  9. If psycho shoppers, crazy drivers, or your own family are getting you
    down, I hope these non-chemical mood altering experiences will erase your frown.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

  10. Ha! Something arrived in my Mental Inbox today. I accepted it with gratitude, and some little relief:)

  11. Robert and Friends,
    I am a little late with posting my poem.
    My excuse this week is that I am on holiday in Malta.
    Sunny days, took my time momentarily!

    Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving Day.
    I may be delayed in visiting blogs to leave comments, but I will get there!

    Best wishes,

  12. Thanks guys - glad to be a part of it

  13. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! :-)
