I’m THANKFUL it’s Thursday! Time to join Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop – you can do the same – click the badge above and you’re IN! We share what we’re thankful for each week. I’m always thankful for everything I have in my home – humans who love me, all the food I can eat (and more), lots of nap spots, toys, – well, just EVERYTHING anyone could possibly ask for. That’s a lot to be thankful for but I truly am. I love living here and feel so much love from my Mom and Dad.
I am also thankful that my big brother Angel Sammy sends us some poetic fun every week………he may be at the Rainbow Bridge, but he never lets any of us down when we need him – and on Thursday it’s HIS day to share a poem he’s written to go with the photo he give us as inspiration every week. I got his email last night – just before he settled in for the night on his Cloud at the Bridge……….here’s what he sent.
Hello my friends! It’s Thursday again………..days whiz by don’t they – they do that at the Bridge too but we’re all so super busy sometimes we don’t notice. I have friends up here who remind me that it’s time to do my poem every week or I’d probably forget! As you all know, the whole idea about Poetic Thursday is that I give you a photo every week and you come up with a poem that the photo has inspired in you……what did the photo make you feel or think about or what do you “see” in your mind’s eye when you study the photo. Whatever you want to do with the photo it’s YOURS to be creative with. It’s not so hard to write a poem – they can be short or long, they can rhyme or not – it’s just a way to EXPRESS yourself and it’s fun. Give it a whirl.
Here’s the photo I gave you LAST week………..and it’s followed by MY poem to share with you! If you have written a poem let us know in my comments here and we’ll come read it OR you can even write your poem HERE in our comments! Ready?
Before I do my poem let me just say that this photo is so very cool. It’s one of the new “tiny houses” that lots of people are moving into and giving up their BIG houses for when they really just don’t need that much room. This one is on wheels too so you can take it with you ANYWHERE – like a camper only a house! If you get tired of your view, you can take it somewhere else. VERY VERY cool. Anyway, here’s my poem:
By Angel Sammy Kimmell May 17, 2018
I’ve heard the term “living large”
But I won’t be the one to lead the charge
I think we don’t really need all that space
“Large” doesn’t fit my preferred life’s pace.
A little house on wheels, what a deal!
Who needs 10 rooms, that’s got NO appeal
Just enough space to make a meal and sleep
No big mortgage to get in debt too deep!
Room for me, Mom, Dad and Teddy
If I was back on Earth, I’d always be ready
We’d travel around and see so much!
Or we’d live in a field full of flowers to touch!
Or by a stream with water and fish
It truly would be my fondest wish………..
Some humans think they need so much room
But you don’t need space for your imagination to bloom!
Small, cozy places with those you love best
Is the REAL definition of a true LOVE NEST !
Oh I think it would be fun to live in that little house…………Mom says it would also make a great little garden shed, or art/craft studio………or even a little “pool house” but really and truly, a TINY house could truly be a home. Scale down life and make things more simple. Yep – works for me!
So would you like to see the photo I picked out for you for next week’s poetry challenge?
I bet you have some pretty cool thoughts about THIS ONE don’t you? I know I sure do…………………………………………
So, is it a date? Will you come back next Thursday to visit and let us know you wrote a poem for this photo? I will be here waiting to read it. Meanwhile, have a great week ahead. I will spend mine keeping an eye on my little brother Teddy and my Mom and Dad and everyone else that I love………..that’s YOU!
Hugs, Angel Sammy
Thank you Angel Sammy…………….I love your poem this week and I just bet I will love your poem NEXT week. I hope everyone will join us in writing a poem for your poetry challenge. I really, truly do!
