Hello everybody. Shall we talk about our THANKFULS? I know we’re all thankful that Brian is dealing with his health well. That makes all of us happy. We send him tons of POTP and I know all of you do as well. I’m also thankful that we are enjoying some nice weather – I will though be happy when Fall begins to fall because it’s my favorite time of the year AND my parents’ favorite as well. Fires in the fireplace – sweaters to snuggle in – and WARM LAPS! As always we are VERY THANKFUL that Brian hosts the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
Now for the Poetic Thursday portion of our post. Angel Sammy send me an email from the Rainbow Bridge last night with his poem and a new photo so let’s see what he said shall we?
Hello from my “Corner” !
It’s time for us to share some poetry. I hope you wrote one to share with us today – based on the photo I gave you last Thursday. I firmly believe that everyone can write a poem. Poetry doesn’t even have to rhyme! It’s not got a “size” restriction either – short or long doesn’t matter. So if you haven’t given it a try – please try! Just study the photo that I will give you later and see what the photo inspires in your imagination and write a poem based on those feelings. Easy. It’s also tons of fun.
Here’s the photo I gave you last Thursday to use for TODAY’S Poetry Day – and my poem follows……
“My Thinkin’ Time”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©September 15, 2021
I grabbed my fishin’ gear and off I went
A prettier day God could not have sent
I have “my spot” up on the riverbank
I inherited that spot from Uncle Hank
Fishin’ runs in my family ‘s blood
Sunny days, rainy days or even a flood!
One or two of us are always ready to fish
Fried fish and cornbread is my favorite dish
And if just one wish I would be given
It would be that ’til the day I die I’ll keep on fishin’………….
My Mom says while her Dad never got into fishing or really any sports of any type, she and her brother were most interested in learning how to fish when they were kids. They lived on an Air Force Base with a BIG lake and one year for Christmas she and her brother got bamboo fishing poles from Santa. They’d walk to the lake and having never really been taught a thing about how to do it, they (like many kids!) taught themselves. Mom had a problem getting over the “worm stuck on a hook” thing but once she did, she and her brother could spend ALL DAY at the lake. The deal with fishing on post was that you had to practice “catch and release”. The fish were small anyway. It was more about spending time together out of the house – out in the sunshine and fresh air – and bragging about how many fish you’d caught!
SO, I found a good photo for all of us to use next week…………………at least I hope you will like this one! Oh – and if you wrote a poem today for the fishing photo – let us know in comments and give us your link so we can read it.
Now this one is a doozy. All sort of possibilities here……………….hero? Criminal? Rich guy car collector? We’ll see what you think when we read your poem next week and I share mine with you!
Until then -please stay safe, stay healthy, always do “THE RIGHT THING”!
I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!
Love Always, Angel Sammy
As always Angel Sammy, I loved your poem today………….I think next week’s is a great photo and should bring a whole lot of interesting poems from everyone. All I can see is a CAR or two and I don’t like them because when I see one – I think “VET VISIT”. HAHAHAHA
