Thankful Thursday time……………..Brian, #1 thankful today is thanks to you for hosting this chance for us to all get together and concentrate on what we’re thankful for! Anyone else wanting to join in just click on Brian’s badge and link up. It’s something I think we ALL look forward to every week.
Another thing I’m thankful for is that we only for 3 inches of snow this time around. The “arctic air” and extreme cold is really something but somehow with the sun out, it’s not so bad. We just feel awful for any creature who does not have shelter when it’s like this.
I got Angel Sammy’s poem last night so I’m happy to share his Thoroughly Poetic Thursday poem with you all! If you wrote a poem this week, let us know in comments won’t you? We’ll come visit you and read your poetry.
Hello Fellow Poets and Poetry Fans! Time to SHARE!
Hope we have a few more entries to read today in our weekly get-together………if you say that you “can’t” write poetry you’re wrong. If you can WRITE, you can write a poem. Trust me. Just try once and you might like it. I will give you a photo every Thursday and you have a WHOLE WEEK to think about it and see what you can come up with in the way of a poem – any poetic form – to share the following Thursday.
Here’s the photo I gave you for THIS week with my poem following. Gosh this looks amazing doesn’t it????
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell January 30, 2019
This skillfully built masterpiece of calories
I hope the designer has a good salary!
I look at it and think WOW
I wish that I could eat that NOW
Sweets aren’t good for cats to eat
But a little lick of ice cream is a very nice treat
That whipped cream is inviting – I might eat that……
Surely anything in moderation is OK for a cat?
My Mom says even though she’s getting too round
She’d like to tackle this banana split then lose 50 pounds!
When we saw this photo we just knew it would be a fun one to write a poem about. My Mom hasn’t had a banana split in YEARS. Funny but it’s kind of one of those “old-fashioned” ice cream treats……these days people are more diet conscious and get sugar-free trees or at least something in moderation – – – this photo shows an all out, full speed ahead, ice cream orgy in a dish!!!
Well, I hope you had fun with this – I did. Now for next week’s photo – you have ALL week to think about what to write………………let this photo inspire you!
When I saw this photo I thought – “NO WAY!!”…………but there are a lot of people who love high diving – cliff diving – dangerous diving and while I wouldn’t do it (even though I’m safe because I’m am Angel!) that doesn’t mean that SOME consider it a legitimate sport. I just think it will make for a GREAT poem!
So I’ll see you here next week? I sincerely hope that I do……………….I love this little bit of time with all my friends……………..I miss all of you……………..
Love always from the rainbow…………Angel Sammy
Oh Angel Sammy that photo is just so scary…..even cats who can handle jumping from amazing heights would NOT want to leap off that rock – I won’t even leap off my cat tree from the tippity top. Anyway, thank you for sharing your poetry with us every week.
STAY WARM EVERYONE………..
It’s too cold for us to be outside so stay inside………………..and if you’re able to provide shelter to another animal during this horrible arctic cold, please do. We have our heated cat house on the front porch!
