This week at Wordsmith Studio we’re cranking our brains. (just a little bit because this week is just too busy to do much else.)
The premise: The first Thanksgiving in America was held October 1621 by Plymouth Colony Pilgrims in appreciation of assistance from members of the Massasoit tribe and celebration of the first harvest.
The lesson: But, did you know the phrase “to give thanks,” is from the same root as “think?” So, in essence, the word Thanksgiving is a THOUGHT and EXPRESSION of thanks.
The prompt: There are 370 words that can be created from the word Thanksgiving, not including proper names. THINK of eight and then write your giblets off.
6 a.m. and no coffee
Resting at my morning round table
Tending to the schooled knights of old
Thinking the giant thoughts of saints
Inking last minute history essays
Brain crumbling into ash
