Happy Thursday! Time to be thankful for another week………………..this Hop is sponsored by our good friend Brian and you can join in and tell us your Thankfuls by clicking his badge above. Fill out the LINKY tool and tell it like it is. My “Thankfuls” this week include that Mom and Dad finally got the deck resealed and I can now visit it on my “walks” around the yard. It was off limits for several days while the work was going on and now I can go up there and hang out if I want to. Another thankful is that even though we were expecting a whole lot of firework noise yesterday we didn’t have ANY until last night and even that wasn’t so bad. I wasn’t scared at all (well, hardly anyway!).
The other part of my post today is sharing the email I got from Angel Sammy via his wifi connection at the Bridge transmitting his regular Thursday poem to us. YAY! Below is what came through……………
Hello everyone! Here we are again on a Thursday sharing some fun with poetry. By now you know that on Thursdays I not only share my poem with you that I based on the previous week’s “photo inspiration” that I gave, but I also give you a challenging photo for you to write a poem about for NEXT Thursday when we get together again! Just put into words what the photo I give you “says” to you – how does it make you feel or what do you see/think about when you see it? Pretty easy right? Well you may think you can’t write a poem but you CAN – trust me. Here’s the photo I gave you last week for you to write a poem about for today – followed by my poem.

Drive In movies were very popular in the past
But like lots of things, they just didn’t last
People now prefer a cool movie theater seat
Rather than outside in a car – but back then it was a treat!
Date night meant going to a drive-in, getting popcorn, cokes and candy
Sitting close to your boyfriend in the car with the window speaker quite handy
Intermission you’d walk around, visit friends or get more snacks for “part two”
All around you other cars full of families or maybe couples like you!
It was cozy and private and MAYBE you’d see some of the movie……….
In your date night clothes and teased up hair you felt quite groovy…..
Well that’s what Mom says drive-ins were like but that was so long ago
I’m sure there were people there who ACTUALLY came for the show!!!!
HAHA……sorry Mom…….I had to write this one and it’s dedicated to you and your long-ago memories. There are some drive-ins around these days but they are few and far between.
So now that I embarrassed Mom (!) and also had some fun writing this poem, it’s time for me to tell you that if you’ve written your OWN poem from the photo, please let us know and give us your link in our comments OR write your poem there to share with us. C’mon!!! We want you to give poetry a try……………..it’s FUN I promise.
Now here’s your poem for NEXT Thursdays poetic inspiration – you have a whole week to write a poem about this photo………..will you do it? I hope so.
So I will hope to see you all again next week when we get together and share our poems based on the above photo – is it a date? Until then, just remember that those of us up here at the Bridge are watching over you……all day every day……always and forever.
Love, Angel Sammy
Thanks Angel Sammy……………….that was a fun poem and looks like that carnival photo will be a fun one too……………………..thanks for visiting us every week. It makes me happy!
