About Bethany Rohde


On my favorite mornings, I sip dark roast with whole milk from a dusty blue mug. On summer nights, I’ve been known to follow the sound of windchimes into my tiny backyard and settle into my reading and writing nook (pop-up tent). If I can pen a few phrases by the light of a citronella candle, and watch the stars fade in, I consider it a good day.

I’m grateful to the following sites, and others, for hosting my words on their porch:

  • Tweetspeak Poetry:

What’s In a Reading Nook?

How My 5th-Grade Reading Challenge Opened Doors 

Literacy Conversations: When a Robber Steals the Show

In 2015, I was pleased to have one of my poems published in an e-book by T.S. Poetry Press, Casual: A Little Book of Jeans Poems & Pictures.  

In 2016, I was invited to join the Tweetspeak Poetry team, as a Community Care and Social Media Associate. It’s fun to be a part of a group interested in cultivating words and community through mirth, thoughtfulness, and kindness.

In 2017, I was asked to join the Tweetspeak Poetry team as a Contributing Writer.

    1. Kind of you to take the time and read some of my poetry. Your words are such an encouragement to me. Thank you. And what a poet you are. I read the first several poems in Sparrow this afternoon while I waited for my kids’ school to let out. There I was parked in my car crying again. 😉
