Thankful Thursday…..then…..a poem!
Time to share what we’re all Thankful for this Thursday morning…………All you have to do if you’d like to join in the THANKFUL Blog Hop hosted by Brian, is click on their graphic above, and fill out the LINKY TOOL with your blog address so we can visit you!! We were supposed to get some snow yesterday and while we did get a “dusting” – it was kind of like a sugar coating rather than a real snow event. SO, I’m thankful for that because (1) I was able to go outside without wading through a lot of snow and (2) my Mom and Dad’s new refrigerator was able to be delivered up our long and steep driveway! Refrigerator is good for all of us – my leftovers go in there as well as my Mom and Dad’s foodables supply. I’m also very thankful that my Dad is willing to hunt down all my missing ping pong balls and springs every single morning. I have four ping pong balls and about eight springs which I play with ALL DAY LONG. The balls wind up behind/under furniture or curtains and the springs I carry around the house in my mouth and leave them EVERYWHERE. Dad retrieves them for me and puts them in a nice pile so I can “redistribute” them when I play. What a Dad………
I’m also thankful that even with winter weather and internet outages, etc., my Angel brother Sammy is still able to get good wi-fi from the Bridge because he DID transmit his Thoroughly Poetic Thursday poem to me last night……….it was in my inbox this morning………..and here it is for your viewing pleasure!
Time For Some Poetry!
Hello from the Rainbow Bridge my friends…………..I think we will see some totally fun poetry today because the photo I gave you for your “poetic inspiration” last week was one that almost everyone who reads our poems thought would be VERY inspirational! It certainly was for me – as many of you know, my very last day here on earth before I flew to the Bridge was spent visiting all my friends one last time via a hot air balloon. It was an amazing day hosted by my friends Easy and Madi with help from Dory and I will NEVER forget it.
I wore a special outfit for the adventure!
Anyway, that’s why I picked a photo of hot air balloons for this week’s PHOTO INSPIRATION and I hope you wrote a poem to share with us based on this photo! The poem I wrote is below the photo.
“Up And Away”
By Angel Sammy Kimmell, January 17, 2018
Flying can be tiring if you’re using your own wings
But flying in a balloon makes your heart truly SING
No work required – just float and see the world from up above
You leave the earth behind but you carry with you the love
I had my final balloon trip in December twenty sixteen
I thought it was the end for me – I’d never again be seen
But I soon found out that if we always feel love deep within our heart
Letting go of earthly ties doesn’t mean love stops, it’s just a brand new start
From the Rainbow Bridge or Heaven all Angels wait for the day to come
When you float up to meet us in your own balloon and we again will be as ONE.
Now my friends, did you write a poem today based on the photo I gave you last week of the balloons? If you did, please put your blog link in comments here – we can come read your poem there OR if you prefer, write your poem in our comments and we will read it here. If you didn’t write a poem – please think about doing so next week – share your thoughts, your creativity, your fun spirit with all of us here. I will continue to post a PHOTO every week for those of you who want to participate! I look forward to Thursdays because of poetry and I hope you do too! Here’s the photo I picked out as your inspiration for NEXT WEEK’s poem!
Isn’t that a HAPPY photo? I thought so too………………so think about it – look at it during the week – and try to write your very own poem about it to share with us next Thursday!
In the meantime…..this is your weekly Poet signing off!
Love, Angel Sammy
Thanks Angel Sammy – I loved your poem…………it made me a little weepy but that’s only because I wish that I could have lived with you right here, right now, in this house with Mom and Dad. We gingers would RULE!
Happy Thursday everyone………………….and try writing a little poetry for next week…………….I know Angel Sammy would like it if you tried!
