Two For The Price Of One Day!
Thankful Thursday AND Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
First up – Thankful Thursday Blog Hop with our good friend Brian. THANK YOU for hosting this weekly event Brian – gives us all a chance to say out loud what we think in our hearts every day – that we are indeed thankful. I’m thankful today that I will have my big brother Angel Sammy with me in spirit starting this Sunday when I begin a whole week at “Cat Scouts Summer Camp” ! We have activities every single day of the week until the following Sunday – I’m nervous since this is my first BIG Scouts event. Angel Sammy has promised to be “on my shoulder” – it will be the first big event there he’s missed since he became an Angel.
The second part of today’s post is in fact FROM Angel Sammy – he transmitted his “Thoroughly Poetic Thursday” post to me via email from his Rainbow Bridge Laptop last night……………..here it is!
Hello Friends! Time for some poetry!
I’m so happy that I can continue to do these fun poetry challenges with all of you every week – we really do have excellent w-fi up here at the Rainbow Bridge…………and I write my poem in my spare time up here – usually right before I float away to dream land on my cloud at night! We are working our way through the alphabet for the third time since I started Poetic Thursdays and this week the letter was the letter “H”. Your poem needed to be about ANYTHING that starts with the letter “H” or you could use one or more of the prompt words that I give you each week.
The “H” prompts I gave you last week were:
(1) Happy (2) Hobby (3) Heart (4) Home
I decided to write my poem for today using one of the prompt words – HOBBY!
By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 8/3/17
When I was earthbound I loved to play
A made up game for every day
Hide and seek was one of my best
But in summer one hobby was better than the rest!
Butterfly tag was my specialty you see
I loved the challenge and I think they loved me!
They’d fly in range then suddenly UP and AWAY
I’m sure they knew if they were close they would pay!
When I was young I could leap way up high
Those butterflies flew right up to the sky
They were quite smart and played my game
When I got old though it just wasn’t the same
I never ever hurt them, I’d catch then let go
After all, watching them was the very best show.
Old age took away my ability to leap
But my love of the butterflies I could certainly keep.
One of nature’s beauties, delicate and light
Who knew I’d one day be like them and capable of flight!!
Here are some photos of me waiting UNDER our butterfly bush for those butterflies to visit – they always did – but they didn’t know I was hiding and WAITING – like a shark! Tee Hee
Remember if you want to pawticipate in my poetry fun every week PLEASE DO. Remember poems don’t have to rhyme to be poetry…………..any form will work…….you can put your poem in my comments here OR put your blog link in my comments so we can visit you and read your FABULOUS poetry.
Next week we will do poems about things starting with the letter “I”………………….anything starting with that letter works OR you can use one or more of these prompt words if you want to!
(1) Imagine (2) Idiot (3) Iron (4) Icky
So until next Thursday, I encourage you to give poetry a try……………..it’s fun……………HONEST!
Bon Chance Mon Amis!
