Happy Thankful and Poetic Thursday! First, let’s talk thankful…….because I am – as always. My Mom and Dad decided NOT to do any fireworks in our front yard for July 4th – now that’s something to be thankful for. There are neighbors who do them every year but if they’re not in my front yard, I’m happy. Mom and I will BOTH be thankful when we hear that Brian’s Dad has had a successful melanoma surgery yesterday too. My Mom has had two melanomas so we know how important it is to have that taken care of. We’re sending Mr. Terry a healing hug. If you’d like to tell the world what you’re thankful for – just click Brian’s badge and fill out the linky form. Easy right?
We got an email from Angel Sammy too – with his usual Thursday poem AND a new photo for NEXT week!
Ready for Poetry? I hope so!
Hello friends…………I hope you will hop on the poetic bandwagon and share the poem you wrote to go with last week’s photo I gave you. I wrote one……..and if you did, let us know in comments so we can come visit your blog and read it! So much fun letting our imaginations run wild when we see a photo isn’t it?
Here’s the photo I gave you last week followed by my poem based on the “vibe” I got from the photo…………ready?
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©July 3, 2019
A chill in the air on this foggy night
A light snow falling – a magical sight
As I walk ‘neath the bows of the trees all around
I realize the snow has muffled all other sound
Street lights cause shadows but still light my way
The quiet is refreshing after a noisy day
This estate is a beauty – what a venue for a wedding
As I walk down this road that’s where I am heading
This walk that I took is just what I needed
I’ve made up my mind and heart warnings I’ve heeded
When I get to the parking lot I will jump in my car
I won’t stop again until I’ve gone quite far
You see I heard laughing in the barn as I walked by today
As I walked through the door I heard my Fiancé say
“Don’t worry about her, it’s YOU that I adore!”
Then my Maid of Honor said, “please kiss me once more!”……
Before my walk I left him a letter
Said I was glad I found out and that I deserved so much better…..
Magical night this has been – my head clear from worry
Driving back down this driveway in my car…..and home I will hurry.
OK – I know this is not what you expected especially from me because most of my poems are fun or funny but this one is DEEP and I saw that lonely figure in the distance in the photo and thought this COULD be a scary photo but also COULD be magical in some way. It also is not what I started out writing – poetry has a way of taking you places you might not have though of. Gathering your strength to do something needs deep thought and what better place than on a quiet road and what better timing than before you’ve taken THE BIG STEP to marry someone????!!!!! Anyway, I hope you like it.
Here’s your photo challenge for NEXT Thursday and I hope that you can find something in it that speaks to your creative side and you’ll write a poem to go with the photo!
This one ought to be fun for poetry don’t you think? Nothing quite as exciting as that first kite…………so I hear anyway! Give writing a poem a chance………I think you will like it.
Today is July 4th back there on Earth…….we don’t really celebrate it up at the Rainbow Bridge but we all share memories around the Rainbow Bridge campfire every day – nobody here liked all the noise and fireworks but we still miss being around our humans and all those great big smiles and picnics (there was always some little morsel or two for us!). Here’s a photo of ME all dressed up for a 4th of July long ago……………
Happy 4th to those who are celebrating and to those who aren’t – HAPPY THURSDAY! See you next week!
Love, Angel Sammy
Thank you Angel Sammy………..another great poem. I will be sure and look for picnic morsels when Mom and Dad have their hot dogs today for the 4th……I’ll get a bite for YOU and for ME! We miss you………….
