Twice The Fun Thursday!
First to talk about how thankful we are today. I’m thankful that the fireworks were rained out on July 4th because for once our neighborhood was QUIET that night! I’m sure everyone will make up for that as soon as we have a decent, non-rainy evening but that’s not in the forecast for a while so maybe everyone will FORGET??? Anyway, we all were thankful that we live in “the land of the free and the home of the brave” to celebrate Independence Day. If you’d like to join up on the BLOG HOP to tell what you’re thankful for, just click on Brian’s badge above and go to Brians’ blog, use the LINKY TOOL and hook up to share your “THANKFULNESS” !!
Part two of our blog today consists of the poem that my Angel brother Sammy emailed to me from the Rainbow Bridge last night. He’s so busy at the Bridge I’m glad he still is able to find time not only to visit me once in a while but to also transmit his Thoroughly Poetic Thursday poem to me to share with you every Thursday. He says he wouldn’t miss it for the world………I’m glad.
This week we celebrate the letter “D” and it was YOUR choice to either write a poem about ANYTHING starting with the letter “D” or to use one of Angel Sammy’s prompt words for “D” which were:
(1) DANGER (2) DANDELION (3) DARK (4) DINNER
What follows below is what Angel Sammy sent to me last night!
Hello my friends! I hope Poetic Thursday finds all of you happy and healthy……………………..I sure enjoyed peeking down at all of you last night to see all the July 4th fireworks – imagine how gorgeous that is from the sky on a cloud! Amazing. Today we are celebrating the letter “D” in the alphabet. Here’s what I wrote for “D” !
By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 7/6/17
When I was just a wee, little kitten
With walks in the darkness I was smitten
I loved early mornings with Mom in the DARK
Before anyone’s dogs were out to bark….
I’d wear my harness for safety’s sake
Along the treeline out back – not a noise we’d make!
I’d touch Mom’s knee asking “please pick up me!”
And from her shoulder I’d peek in each tree!
The nesting birds I could hear sleeping
As long the treeline Mom and I were creeping
They slept away and didn’t know
Two spies were near to watch the show!
The DARK was private and special for us
Mom’s shoulder was my own “tour bus” !!
We did that every single day
Unless the snow kept us away…………
The years they passed and I got old………
I no longer like the heat or cold………..
Mom and I both have special memories
Of our mornings in the DARK visiting all those trees……
I hope you liked my poem this week………..Mom and I really LOVED our special mornings together………! I hope that you have written a poem this week – if you did, please put your blog link in my comments section here so we can all visit and read your poem – OR you can put your poem itself in my comments and we’ll read it here! Remember, poetry doesn’t have to rhyme to be fun to read so give it a try – you’ll see what I mean – POETRY IS FUN! Now here are your prompt words for the letter “E” which we will celebrate next Thursday…………..
(1) Earth (2) Evil (3) Escape (4) Empty
See you next week!
Your forever friend, Angel Sammy
Thank you big brother…………………I love your poem……………..maybe one of these days I’ll try to write a poem too! I can’t wait to read what our friends write…………
