YAY for Thursday – a Thankful one especially. These days we all need to think about how many things we are truly thankful for – things we maybe even take for granted but which we should be happy are in our lives. For me, one of those things is my yard since I like to go outside. I’m thankful there are lots of shady spots – especially on a hot day like today. I love lying in the cool dirt UNDER a shrub for instance. Always cool right on the ground under a shrub. I like walking in the woods too for the same reason. It’s about ten degrees cooler in the woods than in the yard. Go figure. I’m also thankful that Mom and Dad (and me) continue to be healthy. We’re LUCKY.
I got the Poetic Thursday Rainbow Bridge e-mail from my brother Angel Sammy so I’m sharing it below.

It’s time for poetry!
Thursday is my day to share with you – and for us all to share poems. We get a photo every week and use it to inspire a poem then share it the following week. Easy right? Well sometimes it’s not easy coming up with inspiration for a poem but that’s why I try to help by providing a photo – maybe it will TICKLE your fancy. If you wrote a poem for last week’s photo – let us know you wrote a poem by telling us in my comments OR give us a link OR poet the poem there.
Here’s last week’s inspirational photo and my poem to go with it:
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©August 3, 2022
Hitting the open road in this old car
Don’t even care if we can’t go far
We’re having an adventure and we’re rollin’ along
The wind in our hair – this is where we belong
We packed our bags, loaded them up and left “THE HOME”
To spend our last days free – we’re ready to roam!
When your time is short the only place you wanna be
Is with someone you care about who also wants to be free!
Yeah well these two are having a blast but no doubt their families will take exception to them hopping in a car and taking to the road. Still I think every single one of us would rather do that than sit in a room watching TV or dozing in a chair just waiting for the dinner bell to ring or the nurse to bring us a pill. On the other hand there are always circumstances to be considered: health conditions, safety, certainly. But the look on these gals’ faces is one of pure JOY. Hard to think that might be WRONG. Like Frank Sinatra’s song “I’ll Do It My Way”.
SO – that’s that for this week but how about next week? Don’t worry – I have a great photo for us all to work with this week and share our poems NEXT Thursday again. Here’s our inspiration for that:
Hmm…….wonder what this guy had in mind when he curled up on the library shelf?????? Let’s see what we all think – write a poem for this photo and share it next Thursday!
It’s been fun as always spending a little time with you – until next week please stay safe, happy and healthy…………and enjoy writing poems – they are good for your soul.
I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!
Love and Rainbow Hugs, Angel Sammy
