It’s Thursday! Time for the THANKFUL blog hop Brian hosts at his blog AND for Angel Sammy’s poetry day. First though let’s give some time to be THANKFUL. If you want to join us, please click Brian’s badge and join in by filling out the LINKY tool. It’s great to share our thankfuls every week. This week I’m super thankful that the weather has been nice enough that I’d been able to go outside a LOT and it’s not even really NICE and Springy – but it’s NICER than winter weather so my parents have been taking me out more. I love being in my yard……..I munch on grass (yes we actually have some coming up already!) and enjoy the sun on my furs (if the sun’s out of course otherwise I just ENJOY the fresh air). Mom and Dad are positive I was an outdoor kitty before they adopted me – I love the great outdoors and actually enjoy the COLD. I think that’s why they think maybe I was a barn cat or had a major outside connection. I can’t give it up but at least I’m SAFE out there with my harness and leash on.
Now for the next part of today’s blog – Angel Sammy transmitted his POETIC THUSDAY poem to me via his internet connection at the Rainbow Bridge so I will show you that now!
Hello Friends! Ready for some poetry?
I hope some more of you have thought a little more about joining in our Poetry Challenge every week because it sure is FUN. I didn’t have a lot of time to work on a poem this week because they are keeping us busy at the Bridge with Easter and Passover coming up……..we have a lot of ANGELIC duties to take care of you know. BUT I did find some time and using the photo I gave you last week as your poetic inspiration, I crafted my poem based on this photo!
First of all – don’t you just LOVE this photo? what a fabulous spot this would be to spend a summer afternoon…………all those beautiful tulips and petty green trees and grass????!!!! Spread out a picnic blanket and VOILA – heavenly! So here’s the poem I wrote to go with this photo.
By Angel Sammy Kimmell March 28, 2018
Acres of blooms in gardens galore
Springtime is popping with flowers and more
Trees bud and shrubs grow and nature awakes
New growth needs warm breezes and all the sun it can take
Blooming flowers in colors from pastels to deep hue
Glistening in morning sun as it shines on the dew
Have you ever noticed when you see flowers that they make you smile?
It’s great to observe if you sit down in a garden for a while
People stop and point and smell the bouquet of scent in the air
For a minute or an hour, you can forget all your cares
Get lost in the glory that comes from the flowers
Their beauty and color contain so much power
A garden of flowers is such a happy place
It’s for sure you will see more than one happy face!
Flowers are special – and you can’t look at a garden full of flowers without smiling at the wonder of the beauty of nature. I used to go out in to my Mom’s garden when she had one in our backyard and just SIT…….I sometimes would lie down and squash some flowers accidentally (oops) and stay there for an hour – sometimes falling asleep while Mom pulled weeds or cut flowers all around me. I just found it a happy place. She doesn’t have a flower garden anymore but it’s a fond memory of mine. I expect Teddy will enjoy being outside with Mom as she weeds her perennial bed (which is a lot less work to have!).
I hope you enjoyed my poem today and I bet when I read YOURS I will enjoy them too! The tulip photo speaks to me of SPRING and EASTER and warm weather…………..what did the photo “tell” you when you looked at it? If you wrote a poem, tell us you did in comments and give us your blog link so we can read it OR put your poem in our comments and SHARE.
Meanwhile, I have a photo for your NEXT WEEK’s poem inspiration……………can’t wait to see what you write for this one.
Our poetry challenge will be to write a poem about this photo – how does it make you feel? What do you see and what do you think. I will see the answers to those questions NEXT Thursday when we share our poetry!
Meanwhile, HAVE A WONDERFUL EASTER OR PASSOVER!
Oui Oui – me in my French beret which inspires my POETRY!
Big Angelic Hugs from me to all of you!
Thank you Angel Sammy! I love your poem today but then again I love all your poems. I hope everyone else wrote one – it’s fun to see what people come up with. Thanks for joining in the fun everybody.
