First Up: Thankful Thursday with Brian
Is it Thursday already? Where does time go? I’m just a little guy – not even two years old yet – but time really does fly by just like my Mom and Dad are always saying. Once a week we gather together on Brian’s Blog Hop though no matter HOW quickly Thursdays come, in order to share what we are THANKFUL for. You can join in if you like – just click his badge above and enter by using the LINKY tool. Share an share alike right?
What am I thankful for this week? You might think this is a weird thankful but I truly am thankful that we had some SPRING in the middle of Winter. We had several days in the 60s and one that made it to 70! What’s with that?? It was really great because I whined at the front door three or four times and got a passing human to put my harness on me and take me outside for a little bit of DIRT TIME. Instead of frozen ground I found some nice loose dirt in Mom’s front garden and before she could get me OUT of there I managed to hop/dig/roll around to my heart’s content! Just like a little piggy (Bacon my friend sorry about that!). Mom brushed me off and of course when I got inside I got my feets (all four of them) washed with a cloth which I didn’t like but it was SOOOO worth it. It was Spring for a little while…………..we are now back to the 30s and 40s so I’ll have to wait a few months for more DIRT.
I’m also thankful Angel Sammy didn’t let me down this week and transmitted his Poetic Thursday poem to me last night from the Rainbow Bridge. He says he will never let me down and I believe it! Here’s what he sent:
Hello Poetry Fans! It’s Thursday and time to share some poetry………
Each Thursday we share our poem that we’ve written based on a photo that I give you the previous week………….you have a whole week to think about the photo and figure out what it’s saying to you and what words it inspires you to write for your poem! Maybe a feeling you get, or a memory you have, or just an impression formed by staring at the photo for a little while. Those of you who are participating in this every week are doing a GREAT job so far and I hope that maybe YOU (yes YOU!) will join in this week by sharing a poem about this photo from last week:
You know, poetry doesn’t even have to rhyme – it can be freeform and different – just a collection of thoughts – I know that when you look at a photo you have certain feelings that come forward so why not put them down on paper?? Then share them with us! Here’s my poem for this photo:
by Angel Sammy Kimmell, January 24, 2018
A bond with a pet is so warm and so true
The trust we share as best friends – ME and YOU
We don’t ask you why or when or how
We just live in the moment and the moment is now….
We give you our hearts and you give us your love
It’s a match made in heaven AND the “Bridge” up above.
We all need a friend who is our safe place to fall
To run to with happiness when our name they do call
When our eyes meet we know that the love is right there
We know with no doubt that we will ALWAYS care
One day we will know that it’s time for goodbye
With reluctance we accept with a tear in our eye
We will meet up again like we were never apart
For pets and their people are JOINED AT THE HEART……….
If you wrote a poem today about that cute photo of the child and pup, please share it with us – tell us in comments that you have a poem for us to read – give us your blog link so we can visit you OR if you prefer, write your poem in our comments and we’ll see it here and now!
Here’s your “inspirational photo” for next week…………..let’s see what we can all do with this one when it comes to writing a poem shall we? YAY!
I like this one………………………..all sorts of things come to mind (including me prowling around looking for mice!). So, how about it – join me next week in writing a poem? I promise once you try you will be hooked……………honest.
I’ll be waiting for you next Thursday with my “oh so very French” beret – perfect for writing poetry oui????
Love, Angel Sammy
Thanks Angel Sammy. I love that photo of the kid with the pup and I like the one for next week too. Thanks for never ever letting me down either – you always get your poem to me in time to share on Thursdays.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I think I’ll take my Dad for a walk!
