Holiday Tips

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – Prompt #222 – “Words of Thanksgiving”

“This week, we celebrate Thanksgiving Day in the States.

We’ve already written a poem about the things for which we are thankful. Now we turn from words of thanksgiving to thanksgiving words. Today, I offer this word cloud for your consideration. Use at least ten (10) of the words in your poem. If you fit all of the words into your poem, you get the drumstick and a nice nap! It doesn’t have to be a Thanksgiving poem. Any subject is fair game, just use the prescribed words!”


cranberries, feast, eat, grateful, fall, Pilgrims, yams, Plymouth, stuffing, gravy, food, ham, gobble, pumpkin pie, blessings, turkey, family, thankful, natives, friends, leaves, tradition, football, parades, holiday, nap

Do not be a ham, a yam
is more appropriate
traditional holiday
fare. As leaves fall,
be thankful for all your
family and friends. If
you feel stuffed, take
a walk before you nap.
