Thankful? Oh yes we are……..always. I know my Mom and Dad feel like I do – we are thankful to be alive and have so many great friends! Thursday is the day our host Brian helps all of us celebrate the many things we have to be thankful for in our lives. If you’d like to tell the world what you are thankful for – just click Brian’s badge above and join in.
I’m especially thankful that even though on Tuesday morning this week I watched my Mom and Dad pack up their stuff and head out the door in the morning that they DID come back the next day – I’m not always sure they will return. Maybe that’s just the “shelter kitty” in me but I don’t want to be without them because I love them and they love me I’m SURE so we belong together. But they DID deserve a little break and it WAS a special occasion – an 80th birthday party for my Aunt! BUT I really am glad my world is happy and I’m THANKFUL that it is. I hope yours is too?
The other part of today’s post is our OTHER “usual” Thursday thing – being poetic with my Angel brother Sammy. Every week he sends us a poem of his own based on a photo that he gives us every Thursday – last Thursday’s photo was CLOUDS………shall we see what he did with that one???
Hello poetic friends! It’s that time again – we’re going to share the poem we wrote during this past week based on the photo “inspiration” I gave you. I try to find photos that might give you a challenge because it’s fun to exercise your creativity from time to time. This is just my way of making you “think outside the box” and write a bit of poetry even if you’ve never done it before. Last week’s photo seemed to me to be a combination of “EASY” and “TOUGH”………..a most simple photo of clouds but you know, lots of people play the game of “what’s that cloud shaped like” when we’re young so I thought it might be a FUN photo subject for all of us!
Here’s last week’s photo followed by MY poem:
By Angel Sammy Kimmell May 24, 2018
Look up in the sky on a cloudy day
What can you see as they float your way?
If you watch their movement as they change and shift
You can see “things” there as they slowly drift
I see a small angel in the upper right
And an angry face lower left – ready for a fight!
Upper left is a poodle with a pom pom cut
Lower right is a door – maybe entrance to a hut?
Children “cloud watch” as a game as they watch the sky
Giggling and guessing as the clouds drift by
But as you look at the clouds and give them a glance
Remember on clouds Angels do dance
We watch over the world and wait until needed
If bad things happen and warnings aren’t heeded
We are there to comfort and listen and to endeavor
To cover you in wings of love until you join us forever.
Yes – another “Rainbow Bridge” perspective on life and angels and if it makes you think about lying on a blanket on a sunny day as fluffy clouds float by – and make you look for signs that you are NEVER alone then I have done my job with this poem! Now how about you? Did you write a poem using the cloud photo as your “springboard” for some poetic fun? Just leave us your link in my comments so we can read your poem OR write your poem in our comments here……either way, SHARE and have fun with the photo poem challenge.
Here’s your inspiration for NEXT Thursday……………I hope you’ll join me in creating something using this one!
So let’s write a poem about this photo – cute? Yes, but does it say something ELSE to you other than “cute” ? Maybe yes maybe no but share your poem with us next week whatever your thoughts OK? See you then……………
Love, Angel Sammy
