There’s never too many creative ways to say thank you! This idea came from a tweet by Trayle after a MYFest Session:
#Myfest22 Holy Moly that was a fun writing session! Talk about well being! Thanks @OnlineCrsLady @cogdog @MiaZamoraPhD @Bali_Maha A thank you Haiku:
High clouds- gray, without
water, rain, thunder- can't hold
bird laughter and song.

A thank you Haiku, that sounds like a new daily create idea, so here it is… I even portmanteau-ed a name
And thanks Trayle for sharing/reading one of your 99/99 stories. Love the idea of a Thank You Haiku— can we call it a Thainku?
— Alan Levine (@cogdog) July 6, 2022
And that is what you should do today, write a Haiku — standard 3 lines, in form of syllable count 7-5-7. A Thainku should express a representation of gratitude, but… and here’s a rule.. you cannot use the words “thank” or “you”. Aim to be metaphoric, use the traditional Haiku motifs of sound, nature, seasons…
