Thankfully it’s Thankful Thursday! Remember you can join in this Blog Hop by just clicking the badge above and entering your link at Brian’s place. We all share our thankfuls. We must say first on our minds is being thankful that although we’ve been under severe storm watches almost every day for the past week, so far other than some high wind and heavy rain we have NOT had anything approaching “scary” like some other parts of the country are experiencing. We’re also up on a hill so there’s no danger of flooding. We sure do wish that the weather in the country would QUIET DOWN. Everyone is on overload preparing or dealing with consequences of dangerous weather. We send hugs of support to everyone who is having WAY bigger problems than we are. Ann of Zoolatry sent out this awesome badge for anyone who wants to show they care to post…………we just love it.
The other thing we like to do on Thursdays in addition to Brian’s Hop is share the email we get from our Angel Sammy every week which contains his poem based on the photo he gives us to use as inspiration. Thursday is the BIG DAY for that. Here’s what we received from him via the Rainbow Bridge wifi !
Hello From The Bridge Poetry Fans!
Let’s have some poetic fun shall we? Did you write a poem using the photo I gave you last Thursday as our “launch pad” ?? I did and if you did, let us know in comments here so we can come see your work. Such fun to see how creative you all are and also fun to see someone who hasn’t participated in this every week give it a try. BRAVO! Going outside your comfort zone is good for you sometimes.
Here’s the photo I gave you LAST Thursday to use – followed by my poem:
“Now You See It….Now You Don’t”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell May 29, 2019©
Is that a fly on the canvas that I see?
It’s a tiny black dot – at least to me……
I’ve tried to see SOMETHING on this field of white
I certainly hope I’m not losing my sight!
Maybe the canvases are subtly shaded?
Maybe my love of art is becoming jaded?
Perhaps it’s an eye test….and if so I have flunked
Or candid camera maybe and we’re being punked!
Whatever is going on I’m afraid I am lost
Let’s go get a drink – I don’t care what it costs!
I really think this photo is great on many levels. My Mom has been to exhibits of modern art before and other private art shows and seen similar canvases to these being sold for THOUSANDS of dollars. She once asked an artist with a totally black canvas for sale for big bucks what they had in mind when they painted it. The answer was “it’s whatever you want it to be”. Well, my Mom did oil painting for years and there was never any doubt what the paintings were – landscapes, architectural studies, still life, etc. and perhaps that was BORING for the beholder but she felt a lot more comfortable KNOWING what it was. Anyway, we do think this is a cute photo and can’t wait to see what YOU wrote today!
For next Thursday’s Poetry sharing……….I found another interesting photo for you to use for inspiration……….at least I think it is…………..
Oh yeah……………Mom says this reminds her of a few of her experiences at amusement parks! I imagine we’ll have some good poems next week don’t you?
Until next Thursday – be happy, be kind, and remember we at the Rainbow Bridge are watching out for you……
Love, Angel Sammy
Thank you Angel Sammy. You can’t imagine how much I look forward to your Poems every week…………………..and I know you are looking out for us ALL THE TIME.
