Double Duty Thursday!
Thankful Thursday with Brian and
Thoroughly Poetic Thursday with Angel Sam
First let’s talk about Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. All of us who want to share what we’re thankful for join in and link up and talk about thankfulness. Click on his badge above and you can use the Linky tool and hook up too! Today I have to say I’m very thankful that I have a nice cool house to live in – why? Because we’re having days close to the 100s and that means HOT HOT HOT. Makes me think of all those animals who don’t have a nice cool home and access to fresh water. It’s sad isn’t it. Makes us realize how GOOD we have it.
The second part of today’s blog belongs to my brother Angel Sammy……………it was his idea to begin writing poetry and sharing it on Thursdays and drawing everyone into the “game” by going through the alphabet each Thursday and write a poem about something starting with a letter of the alphabet. This past year we started our third time through the alphabet but with a twist – this time you can either write a poem about ANYTHING starting with that week’s letter OR use one of Angel Sammy’s “prompt” words! This week we’re doing the letter “E” and his prompts for that letter are:
(1) Earth (2) Evil (3) Escape (4) Empty
Angel Sammy transmitted via his wi-fi connection at the Bridge the following for today’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday! If you wrote a poem and would like to share it, you can tell us you did and give us your blog link in my comments OR you could even write your poem in my comments and we’ll be able to read it here…….either way, it’s fun to try your hand at writing a poem. We hope you give it a try! Here’s what I got from Angel Sammy overnight:
Hello My Friends!
Today is Thursday and it’s time for me to share the poem I wrote honoring the letter “E” as we upsh our way through the alphabet yet again! I decided to use one of my prompt words – which one? Well I chose the word EMPTY!
“E” is for “Empty”
by Angel Sammy Kimmell, July 12, 2017
Empty means there’s nothing there
It’s gone, it’s finished, nothing to spare
There’s empty words, empty brains (!) and empty hearts
Empty gas tanks, food bowls, and grocery carts!
NEVER empty was the cat food shelf in our kitchen
Even though brands of food I was constantly switching!
Empty means nothing there and that was NOT me
I lived my life on FULL and happy as could be
And that’s what I wish for you, that you’re FULL of love like me.
Before I go, let me give you NEXT week’s prompt words – remember you don’t have to use one of these words – you can write a poem about ANYTHING starting with the letter “F” OK? My suggested prompts are:
(1) Feast (2) Frog (3) Frosty (4) Family
Be Happy! Hugs, Angel Sammy
Thank you Angel Sammy………….I’ll look forward to seeing what you come up with for next week…………AND now I think I’ll see if anyone has left a poem in our comments today OR a link to their poem on their own blog!!!!
But first a need a nap……tee hee………Love, Teddy
Thanks Angel Sammy for sending me this poem – I’ve printed it out and tacked it up above my bed to remind me to never get EMPTY and to always stay FULL!!
