Time to be Thankful and then for us to see what poem Angel Sammy came up with for his Poetic Photo Thursday! Want to join in this special Hop hosted by Brian? Just click on the badge above and join in – we would love to hear from you! As for my own Thankfuls this week – well I think all of us probably are most thankful for family and time together for the holidays. I know I feel that way – my first Christmas with my Mom and Dad was wonderful……………I paid little attention to presents – mostly I just wanted to be NEAR the Christmas tree where I’ve enjoyed lots of pre-Christmas naps under the tree……….now all the presents are gone I have all that space for myself – but I have this feeling my beloved tree is going to be disappearing soon! Still I’m thankful that I know what Christmas is about and it’s not gifts – it’s about love.
Angel Sammy transmitted his poem to me last night – he did miss having Christmas here this year but then it was BEFORE Christmas last year that he went to the Bridge so this is his second “missed” Christmas. We certainly thought about him on December 2nd – I never met him but I “know” him because we cats are brothers and sisters of one big family………….and we know that one day we will all be at the Bridge together.
Here’s Angel Sammy’s poem………….
It’s Time For Poetic Thursday!
Hello my friends! As my little brother Teddy has already said – we all hope your holiday was bright and beautiful. It’s always bright and beautiful at the Rainbow Bridge but those of us who are Angels wish we could be with our families in purrrrson instead of in spirit when it comes to special occasions like holidays.
Did you write a poem this week to share with us? We have been doing PHOTO-inspired poems instead of using the alphabet – I hope you’re having fun with that. This was the photo I gave you last week to think about and write a poem about – followed by MY poetic thought about it!
“A New Start”
by Angel Sammy Kimmell, Dec. 28, 2017
In the dark night sky the colors are bright
They light up our hearts as they light up the night
They signal the start of a brand new year
Their bold colors pop as their sound fills our ears
The world full of hope that perhaps a new start
A new year might just bring some peace in our hearts
It sometimes seems like peace is so far away
Perhaps it will come closer if we hope and we pray
It must overcome the ache of the losses we feel
It must conquer threats from others so real
In a world full of doubt that real peace can be reached
Let LOVE be the way for those fences to be breached.
I think everyone would like for the new year to bring a new start – let’s make sure it is one! We Angels promise to work overtime to help…………… ♥
I’m hoping you will share your poem this week by giving us notice in our comments here that you have a poem written for us to read – just give us your link OR you can even write your poem in our comments…………just give it a try……….so many people have said “I can’t write poetry” but when I ask them to try to express their thoughts about a photo or a word they CAN. You know what? We truly CAN do anything including write a poem. Here’s my photo for you to think about this coming week – then next Thursday we will all share again! Just think it will be 2018 then. WOW.
Oh I think this one will be FUN!
I hope to see you here again next Thursday with a poem about this photo – what does this make you think of, feel, what do you see, WANT to see………use your imagination and write a poem!
Until next week, Angel Sammy signing off from the Bridge……..with hugs!
Thanks a lot Angel Sammy………….I like your poem today but I can’t WAIT to see what you come up with for NEXT week!
