Happy Thursday! Time to share our thankfuls from the past week on this blog hop that our buddy Brian hosts every week. Wanna join in? Just click the badge above and DO IT! This week I have to say I’m thankful that we have had TWO days of sun. I don’t mind rain – in fact I will walk outside and act like I don’t even notice it’s raining like mad – but I prefer sun and puddles of sun. Who wouldn’t? If you’re a cat anyway! I’m ALSO thankful my brother Angel Sammy did his usual and reliable thing of transmitting via his Bridge Laptop this week’s THOROUGHLY POETIC poem………what would my week be without that too? Well, it sure wouldn’t be as much fun.
Below is the email I got from him last night. If you’ve never participated in the sharing of a poem inspired by one of Sammy’s photos he gives us then maybe this is the week you should try!!
Hello my friends! It’s already Thursday even though it seems like YESTERDAY we shared our photo-inspired poetry here, doesn’t it? Time flies – not just for your Earth-bounders but also for those of us at the Bridge. Anyway, the idea behind this whole thing is that I give you a photo every week and you have a whole week to write a poem based on that photo; how it made you feel looking at it, things you thought about when you looked at it, what you see in your heart and mind when you look at it. Got the idea? It’s easy – and so is writing a poem. Trust me – poetry takes all sort of forms and sometimes doesn’t even rhyme – it’s just full of feelings or thoughts. GIVE IT A TRY!
Here’s the photo I gave you last week AND following the photo you’ll see the poem I wrote!
by Angel Sammy Kimmell June 27, 2018
An oasis in the midst of the endless sand
A welcome spot in a magical land
Echoes of ancient cultures all around
Breezes through the palm trees the only sound
The cats and their caretaker enjoy paradise
The wind off the water feels ever so nice
The royal caretaker serves the cats to the best of her ability
The felines belong to a family of nobility
This restful break from court will soon be at an end
Soon a chariot will arrive – one the King will send
The caretaker and her charges will return to their home
The royal cats walled in so they can no longer roam
Paradise will be waiting for the next time around
When by the oasis, contented purrs are the only sound………..
I know Teddy would enjoy a trip to this place wherever it is and I know I’d like to meet him there…………………Perhaps this is a spot here at the Rainbow Bridge that I’ve not yet seen – it looks quite magical that’s for sure. I can’t wait to read YOUR poems – did you write one? Let us know that you did in our comments – give us your blog link so we can read it OR write your poem in our comments HERE. YOU CAN DO IT!
Here’s your poetic inspiration for NEXT Thursday……see what you can come up with for this photo! Take the challenge and run with it. It’s fun. Honest it is.
This brings back some memories for some of you right? I hope to see you next week……………….I’ll be looking for you – in the meantime, remember we are friends forever.
Love, Angel Sammy
Thanks Angel Sammy……………………..I love your poem for this week but next week I think Mom is going to insist SHE have some input on your poem. She remembers places like that !!!
