  1. Great to be back on the island with all of you stowaways! 🙂
    I have just published on my blog a satirical poem on technology and Thanksgiving. It’s called “Happy Textgiving.” Drop by when you get a chance! Best wishes!

    Cheers!

  3. Last week, I could not think and hence my absence.
    I hope you like my take of the prompt:

  4. Mine’s too small to put on my blog. But Gratitude, too, to Writers Island for keeping our muses working.

    Gratitude

    As natural as breathing
    thankfulness flows
    from the act of giving

  5. I did an acrostic poem.
    I also give it a not so very clever title. 🙂
    maybe I’ll change that later.

  8. Thankful for a prompt to make me throw something together this morning!http://suzicatepoetry.wordpress.com/2010/12/02/grateful/

  9. I give up with this code. I think if you hid my Mane or the pic of me your will find it.
