Happy Thursday to all our friends! Thanks for coming by to see what I’m thankful for AND to see what Angel Sammy sent for his Thoroughly Poetic Thursday post. We have two parts to our Thursday posts with Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop being first. Brian would love to have you join all of us — so click the badge above and go to his blog and sign up to be part of THANKFUL THURSDAY!……….I have been very thankful to have some sun the past several days and for the cool breezes we’ve getting which are hinting at some Fall weather approaching. Even our trees are getting the message because Mom and I have seen some oranges and some yellows on the trees that normally turn first. We’re a long long way from leaves coming down but the occasional floater by reminds us it’s not far off!! Mom and Dad’s favorite season is Fall……….Dad got some firewood delivered a couple of weeks ago so we’re READY.
I got the usual email from Angel Sammy overnight – his poem and message to us all never fails to arrive on time. As busy as he is up there at the Bridge he doesn’t let us down. Here’s his message:
Greetings from the Bridge!
Have you all noticed how FAST time goes down here? Mom and Teddy said that it seems like we just had Poetry day but it’s been a whole week. Anyway, I have been busy but I will never be too busy to pop in from time to time here on my little brother’s blog.
Here’s the photo that I gave you last week as inspiration for your poem. You have a whole week to come up with a poem to go with the photo – and I hope – as always – that a lot of you gave this a whirl…..it’s just FUN to use a photo as inspiration and those of you who regularly participate know what I mean. Here’s the photo I gave you last week, followed by my poem, followed by NEXT week’s photo!!
“Bird Board Meeting”
By Angel Sammy Kimmell October 3, 2018
“This meeting will come to order”
Chirped the Chairman of the Birds.
“We’ve business to discuss and decisions to make,
About things you may have heard!”
The chirping stopped around him
The birds sat still and quiet
The silence was almost deafening because
It usually sounded like a riot!
“The humans living in this house
Are going to move away
I’ve heard from the dog they’re taking everything
Nothing is going to stay.
That means our beloved bird bath
Where we gather together to meet
Will go with the humans when they leave
Along with the garden seat!
Our favorite places may be gone
But I’ve got an idea or two
There’s always the rooftop or a tall tree
And either place would do!”
The birds began to chatter
And the Chairman listened and thought
Then he called the meeting to order
Opinions he then sought.
The birds had a consensus
Of what they thought they should do
They suggested their next meeting
Be held in the Bird House by the zoo!
HAHA……….another somewhat silly poem but it just came to me in a flash as my poems often do. What better place to hold a meeting of the Board of Birds than the Bird House????? Now I found a photo that I hope you like for NEXT Thursday’s Poetic Challenge………………
Fun huh? I know at least one of my friends in the blogosphere is familiar with tandem bikes…………this is a family tandem which I think is rather cool! So is it a date everybody? Will you give writing a poem a try and use this photo as a “spring board” to your creativity? C’mon! Join me!
Until next week, I hope each of you has a great week ahead………full of fun, love, hope and happiness…………………….GO FOR IT!
Love Always, Angel Sammy
Another poem another smile – that’s my Angel brother!! I too hope you all will join in the fun of writing a poem and if you have one this week you’d like to share, remember to tell us you do in our comments and give us your link………OR, you can even write your poem in our comments if you prefer!
