Here we are! It’s already Thursday and time for us to share what we are thankful for. If you’d like to join this hop hosted by our friend Brian and his family, just click their badge above and join in the Hop with us…………………..
I had something ready to talk about for today but as of two hours ago I changed it because in that time we had a VERY SCARY incident just a few houses down from us………..there was a HUGE explosion and we thought it had happened either in our house or a next door neighbor…………….after we determined we were fine, and the neighbors were fine, we saw out the back deck a HUGE (and I mean HUGE) fire raging in a house on the other side of the lake in our community. The smoke was billowing and black…….it looked like the entire back of the house was on fire. Soon there were firetrucks and ambulances………..they seemed to have a hard time getting the fire under control. A neighbor stopped by to tell us that they did not know if anyone had been home at the time but a car was in the driveway – the family there had four dogs and it’s not known if they were home either. At this time we still don’t know the details as it’s all just too new to know. But one thing is for SURE – we are thankful it was NOT in our home and we are praying that nobody was home where the fire took place. VERY scary and at this time of year in particular, what a disaster for some family. Things can change in an INSTANT – we must be thankful for every minute we have………..every minute!!
I’m also thankful that Angel Sammy came through with his next Poetic PHOTO Challenge for this week – that means Rainbow Bridge communications with wi-fi are as dependable as they’ve been for over a year now since Angel Sammy left us……………..here’s this week’s photo poem……….
Hello my friends and welcome to the SECOND week of our PHOTO POETRY CHALLENGE! This is our new way of having fun with poetry – once a week I give you a photo write a poem about! We hope more of you will join in this fun………it’s not so hard to write a poem – hey – it doesn’t even have to RHYME to be a poem – it can be short or long, funny or serious – whatever the photo I give you inspires you to say! You can put your link to your own poem in the blog comments OR even write your poem there in the comments!
Here’s the photo for this week followed by my poem about the photo:
By Angel Sammy Kimmell, Dec. 20, 2017
Abandoned and forgotten
Rusty and quite rotten
What is this car’s story?
Full of sadness or glory?
Did a family get stranded?
Where this sad old car landed?
Did they run out of gas?
Did a spaceship go past?
I hope whoever was driving
Was not in a hurry to be arriving!
It’s a very lonely photograph
But I know what should be its’ epitaph:
“I DID MY BEST BUT FAILED THE TEST” !
You can’t help but wonder WHAT the story is behind this photo can you………………..I just hope everyone who WAS in the car is alright – or if someone towed the car out there just to get rid of it – I hope someone finds it one day and at least takes it out of this magnificent landscape because it just doesn’t belong there. So what did you write about for this photo? I can’t wait to read what you did………………!
For next Thursday, here’s your POETIC PHOTO CHALLENGE…………………….as the new year approaches…………
We will share what this photo of a New Year’s Celebration makes us think about and how does it make us feel? Excited? Hopeful? Happy? Or something else entirely? I will be thinking about what to write to – then next Thursday we’ll meet here and SHARE.
Meanwhile, I want to wish everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS and Happy Holiday…………………..because we all need a little MAGIC right about now – right?
Love, Angel Sammy
Thanks Angel Sammy – I love your poem and I think the one for next week ought to be fun. I hope everyone is loving the poetry challenges as much as I do READING them! See you all next week!
Lots of Holiday Teddy Hugs!!!!
