I Am Thankful………….!
Time to be hopping along with Brian on his Thursday Blog Hop……..thanks again Brian for hosting this chance to share with the universe what we’re all thankful for. If you want to join us – just click on the badge above……..visit Brian and hook up to the Hop!
Since this is the last “Thankful Thursday” before my birthday on March 4th, I want to say just how THANKFUL I am that I am celebrating my SECOND birthday here in my forever home with my Mom and Dad. Last year I had only lived here with them for about 3 weeks when I had my FIRST birthday. Now I’ve lived here a whole year since then and I know just how nice it is to have food, fun, and forever so I can really RELAX on this birthday right? I’m also thankful Angel Sammy arranged my adoption – because I know in my heart he did JUST THAT!
Second part of our blog today deals with POETIC THURSDAY – Angel Sammy sends me an email transmission to post for him with his poem and a new photo for NEXT week’s poem. I look forward to that every week – I hope you do too?
Here’s what I got from his cloud last night!
Hello my friends………time to share some poetry!
Thursday is when those of you who are playing along with my challenge to write a poem each week inspired by a photograph that I give to you SHARE those poems either by giving us a link to your poem on your blog OR where you can post your poem in our comments on this blog! However you want to do it – we want you to give this challenge a whirl. When you look at a photo, you get an impression of something – a feeling, a memory, an emotion – can be anything that pops into you head upon seeing the photograph. The fun then is to turn THAT into a poem! Here is last week’s photo that I gave you to work with, and then my poem from MY impression of the photo:
By Angel Sammy Kimmell February 28, 2018
I stood on the bridge watching the setting sun
Feeling relaxed as the day was done
As the sun slowly sank on the earth’s horizon
My cell phone rang courtesy of Verizon
“Yes?” I said irritated at the noisy ring
Until then all I’d heard was birds on the wing
“Time for dinner” my Mom said and I turned to leave
But the sight that awaited me I just could not believe!
As I’d stood on the bridge letting my thoughts take flight
The tide had come in as day turned into night
I was trapped on the bridge for I could not swim
I’d walked out to this bridge on an “unthinking” whim
Thoughts of tides or times or dinner just hadn’t occurred!
If Mom had warned me, I just hadn’t heard!
What to do, what to do, I just couldn’t THINK
One thing for sure, my bridge would not sink!
So I called Mom back and told her the tale….
She reminded me of something which just couldn’t fail
I had been so lost in my thoughts that I forgot one BIG thing
I was an Angel now – and Angels have wings……………………….
Tee Hee. Yes it’s a bit of a silly and fun poem this week – not moody as my poems sometimes are……….but that’s the thing about writing a poem – you can truly write about ANYTHING – you can describe how you feel, what’s in your head, something you can’t “speak out loud but can write about”……….and that’s why I say – GIVE IT A TRY! I’d love for you to do that. I also hope you liked my poem this week. I can’t wait to read yours too!
Here’s my photo challenge for you for NEXT Thursday……………if you didn’t write one for today – see what you can do with this photo and I’ll see you next week OK?
Now this photo is gonna be tons of fun right?
Love to you all – Angel Sammy
Thanks Angel Sammy! I liked your poem and I think that photo for next week ought to get some creative juices flowing with our followers – even those who haven’t written a poem before – maybe they’ll enjoy coming up with something.
Happy Thursday To YOU! From Teddy
On a sad note……..we had to say goodbye to yet another friend – the beautiful and sweet Kali from CANADIAN CATS blog. She and her sister Shoko ran the household together along with their Mom and Dad and we know they are missing Kali – so are we – Angel Sammy is making sure she feels “at home” at the Bridge along with all the other Angels.
You are missed…….Teddy and Mom
