Happy Thankful Thursday – actually this whole month is a THANKFUL month since we celebrate Thanksgiving – and that means TURKEY! If you’d like to join Brian’s Hop, click the badge above and DO IT! Just tell everyone what you are thankful for. I’m thankful that Fall is falling – and it looks amazing outside finally with beautiful leaves and cool temps and Mom and Dad don’t mind being outside with me since it’s COMFY out there. In summer they really aren’t too crazy about being in the HOTS while I lie under a shrub in the shade – there’s no room for them under there! HAHAHA Seriously though, we’re having fires in the fireplace now and that’s just super cozy and sort of a “cat magnet”. I like it!
I’m also thankful that Angel Sammy sent me his Poetic Thursday poem and message so that I can share it with all of you! Are you ready? I am!
Hello my friends! It’s that time again! Fortunately the reception has been exceptional for wi-fi up here at the Bridge now that the air is cooling down on Earth and there’s not much disturbance in the atmosphere. Makes it easier for we Angels to visit you there – did you know that? Well it does.
Today is the day we get together to talk poetry. Hopefully SHARE some poetry too – that is if you have written a poem for the photo I gave you last week. I’ve written mine – and if you didn’t get around to doing that this week, I hope maybe you’ll join in with us NEXT week. I’ll be giving you another chance to do that with another photograph to inspire you to write a poem in a little bit. If you did write a poem – tell us you did in the blog comments and give us your link so we can read it………………OK?
Here’s the photo I gave you LAST week to write a poem about…………how did you feel, what did you think, what are your impressions after viewing this photo??
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell October 31, 2018
The breeze blows gently on the snow covered hill
Or is the sand shifting lightly as down the hill it does spill?
The wispy clouds seem to signal a wind up aloft
Ripples on the white ground make it look very soft
In the distance is a town? Or cliffs? Or a beach with more sand?
From this vantage point it feels like the lone person has command…..
Are they watching a ship arriving on the sea?
Or imagining the landscape if it just had ONE tree?
Is this a scene from the future when there’s just one person left?
When the land lies scorched and broken and humanity bereft?
OK – I can almost hear you all saying – “this one is so very serious Sammy, why??”………………….well, those of you who write poetry know that you write from feelings and thoughts and in this case with a photograph those feelings and thoughts could be just about ANYTHING – that’s why I give you a photo every week – it stirs something different in each of us! This poem reflects how the photo made ME feel. I hope you liked it !!
Now what’s up for next week? How this this one?!?!?!
Interesting? I thought so…………………conjures up some interesting thoughts – and that can lead to an interesting poem!!! So can I count on you to play along with me next week? Good!
I guess I’ll be signing off for now then. I’m meeting up with the “Bacon Lovers Club” for breakfast this morning. I absolutely am not the ONLY cat here who was and still is a BIG FAN of bacon.
Love Forever And A Day…………….Angel Sammy
Oh Angel Sammy how I miss you…………we would have had so much fun together…………now we can just DREAM together.
