Hello Friends!! It’s Thursday and you know that means TWO goodies in one blog day for us. We always started with our friend Brian who hosts “Thankful Thursday” blog hop because it’s just a GREAT way to start a day – focusing on what we are thankful for. I look back at my week and come up with thankfuls – how about you? Want to join the hop? Click on Brian’s badge above and fill out the Linky form and you’ll be with us.
I am thankful this week that I am FINALLY feeling better. I guess I haven’t talked much about it because I was pretending it wasn’t there (!) or that if I ignored it, it would go away. But it didn’t………for well over two weeks I was not myself AT ALL. I slept all the time, wouldn’t eat or drink much, but after several trips to the vet and blood work there seemed to be no REASON for it. I did have one degree of fever but nothing else was showing up on any tests or in any exams I had. I was prescribed what amounts to Kitty Advil (an anti-inflammatory) to take for three days though and I am a bit perkier after taking that. Coming out of my funk slowly perhaps. “Just one of those things” I suppose. But know what? I’m still THANKFUL that I feel better and am acting more like ME…….my Mom and Dad were worried about me. Everyone was worried about me – EVEN I WAS WORRIED ABOUT ME! So I am very thankful for improvement of my “mystery malaise”.
Thankful too that my brother didn’t let me down – he never has……..Angel Sammy sent his poem to me for “POETIC THURSDAY” and I’ll share with you now!
Happy Thursday Poetry Fans!
It’s time to share the poems we wrote this past week inspired by the PHOTO I challenged you to write a poem about. I hope you’re having fun with this project – I know I do and those of you who have participated so far obviously MUST have fun because your poetry is fabulous. If you haven’t joined in, please do. You just have to look at a photo prompt that I provide you and you have a whole week in which to do a poem based on what YOU “see” in the photo, or how it makes you feel……get creative with me!
Here’s the photo we wrote a poem about THIS week followed by MY poem – I can’t wait to read yours! I thought this was a truly interesting photo of the biggest cave EVER………I thought it was super inspiring!
By Angel Sammy Kimmell March 22, 2018
Just when we think we are ever so tall
That we’re mighty, and strong, and in charge of it all
We will see or experience something that shows
How little we observe and how little we know!
The majesty of nature is truly amazing
High cliffs, deep oceans, even caves are hair-raising!
The scope of their “grandness”, their beauty and size
Can move us so deeply, it brings tears to our eyes…..
Our world is so awesome and we need to take care
We don’t ruin all this beauty so in the future it’s still there.
Wildfires, clear cutting, and blasting through for roads
We ask so much of nature, it’s limit we overload……..
Inside this big cave, so dark, quiet and full of power
We may be small but must defend this beauty until the final hour…………
There were so many things this photo made me feel it was hard to single one thing out so I made it about more than one thing……………but the true awesomeness of nature is something we must not take for granted. Maybe we will all live on other planets one day but for the HERE AND NOW we must take care of this beautiful blue planet we live on.
If you wrote a poem today from this same photo – please tell us about it in comments! Give us a link where we can read it – enjoy it…………OR show us your poem in comments – write it out and share.
I have another photo for you for next week…………..you have all week to look at it and think about it and decide what you want to write about! Ready?
Spring? We hope it gets EVERYWHERE soon!
See you all next week…………..thank you for having fun with some poetry along with me every week…………………………….It makes me HAPPY!
Love, Your Angel Poet Sammy
