Thanksgiving Haikus from BMHS Students
Posted 11/26/2018 05:15PM

Now that we are back from our well-deserved Thanksgiving Break and all the turkey and cranberry has been eaten, we want to share with our community some student created Thanksgiving Haikus - thoughful reflections based on the readings for Thanksgiving day Mass (link provided for your reading).

A Haiku is a form of poetry, first made popular in Japan, which has become appreciated around the world. Haiku poets are challenged to convey a vivid message in only 17 syllables.

Thank you to Mr. James Monahan and his BMHS Theology Classes for sharing these with us.
