Thursday and time to be thankful with Brian on his Blog Hop! Time to share what we find ourselves thankful for this past week or whenever. If you’d like to join us – click his badge and link up! I am beginning to sound like a broken record when it comes to why I’m thankful but indeed I do seem to be thankful for the same things almost every week: my Mom and Dad who indulge my every (almost) whim, the weather which is persnickety and rainy much of the time but when it’s not raining so hard you can’t see, I’m usually out there on my leash with a human attached at the other end holding an umbrella…….that I get regular treats (that’s what Mom calls those “Squeeze-ups” that I love so much). See? Lots of thankfuls. How about you? What are you thankful for??
I also thankfully got Angel Sammy’s poetry post for the week………..and I will happily share it with all of you poets and appreciators of poetry alike!
Time for Poetry!
This is “MY” day on Teddy’s blog – I get to see what you all have written which has been inspired by the photos I give you AND I can share the poem I wrote as well. Keep on writing folks – poetry is fun!
If you did write a poem this week – let us know in comments so we can visit you and read it! Here’s the photo I gave you to inspire you for this week’s poem fun:
Before I share my poem I have to tell you (because so many of you asked!) – this is an ACTUAL Tourist Home in Switzerland. Isn’t it a simply staggering view? Someone said they think it would be a dangerous place to have too many glasses of wine and accidentally – well – you know! I think it would be one of the most amazing spots to spend the night (or two or three) and have a wonderful meal on the patio and just stare out over those mountains where you can see FOREVER. Anyway, here’s my poem which this photo inspired:
“In The Clouds”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©June 19, 2019
High up the mountain tucked into rock wall
Be careful coming up – you don’t want to have a fall!
A haven from the world of noise, problems, and woe
There is a heavenly escape where people can go.
The way is not easy but the rewards are very clear
You can find your “center” again and the peace we find so dear
When the time comes to leave this spot your spirit will be renewed
Your secret smile will tell the world that they haven’t got a clue!
Did you write one? If you didn’t – or think you “can’t write poetry” – think again. Anybody can write a poem……poems are expressions of feelings and don’t even have to rhyme! Give it a whirl – stretch your imagination…………..and while you’re stretching, I’ll give you another photo to think about for NEXT Thursday’s poetry day.
Cute? I think so……..I hope you can find something to LOVE about this photo so it will inspire you to write a poem. I already think I might have an idea for MY poem!
Until we meet again next Thursday…….Remember the Angels are watching over you!
Love, Angel Sammy
I know what that photo reminds ME of Angel Sammy and I just bet it’s what you’re thinking of too…………….we’ll find out next week I guess…………..I’ll see you in my dreams until then!
