It’s Thursday again! This is a great HOP hosted by Brian and you can join in by clicking his badge above and linking up with us to be thankful! You all probably have noticed that a lot of my Thankfuls lately have been about (1) being able to go outside, and (2) that my little friend Sawyer keeps battling back from his seizures. Well I have GOOD NEWS on one of those things and SCARY news on another.
The GOOD NEWS is that Sawyer – little miracle guy that he is – seems to be back to ambulating well and acting “himself” after his last seizure. The past two kind of ganged up on his little body and he had a very tough time coming back after the heatstroke he experienced due to the last seizure. Anyway, his Mom reports he’s running (so no ambulation problems) and playing and responding to his name. We are SO happy about that.
The SCARY news is that we had a bear in our backyard on Tuesday! Mom, Dad and a friend were chatting over coffee in the kitchen and our friend said she thought she saw a bear in the backyard – everyone looked out there and sure enough there he was – just about to head into the neighbors back yard. We kept an eye on him – saw him come out on the far side of her yard and head across the street. He looked to be pretty big………and he also looked like he might be limping a little. Hard to tell with bears – they “lumber” along anyway. There are a lot of bear sightings around this area – particularly black bears. Some years ago Sammy saw one coming out of the woods in our backyard – Sammy was in the basement in his favorite chair watching out the window and all of a sudden he flew upstairs with BIG EYES and Mom and Dad knew something was up! They looked out back and there was a large black bear coming around the side of our house into the front yard. SO that’s why we worry about people letting their cats roam. IT’s tough enough around here with all the foxes but add some hungry bears and it’s just not a good place to be – outside on your own! You know I only go outside with harness/leash and Mom and Dad!
Now for our regular Thursday feature – the poem from Angel Sammy! Every Thursday without fail we get his email with his poem in it based on the photo from the previous week he’s given all of us as inspiration.
Happy Thursday Poetry Fans!
Or even if you aren’t a fan but tune in to read my poem and see what next week’s inspirational photo is – welcome anyway………….one of these weeks you may decide to dive into the POETRY POOL and join us.
Here’s the photo I gave you last week to write about for this week…………………followed by my poem……………….followed by next week’s photo!!
“Go Fly A Kite!”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell © July 10, 2019
Curiosity about flying starts quite early
No matter if you’re a little boy or a girlie
There’s something about a kite caught up in the breeze
We love those kites until they land in the trees.
If the wind catches the kite then up, up it goes…..
And it dances in the breeze until you fall or stub your toe!
YEP – that’s a short poem for me I know but it seemed like the RIGHT place to stop when I got to that last line. That’s how it goes when you’re writing poetry. Sometimes you want to go on and on and it’s RIGHT to do that; other times you know it’s best to stop. Did you write a poem for the photo this week? Oh I hope you did – and if you did, let us know in comments so we can come see your poem. Poetry lifts your mood and your soul just like the wind lifts a kite so give it a try and see for yourself!
Meanwhile, be good to each other – make someone smile if you can – enjoy every minute you have………………….All the Angels say the same thing – make the most of the time you are there and be happy.
Here’s your photo for next week’s poetic inspiration – see what you can do with this one!
OOPS…………..well, accidents happen right? My Mom says there were plenty of times when she was babysitting that things like this happened in the blink of an eye and getting the mess cleaned up before Mom and Dad got home was IMPERATIVE and messy! Anyway, all of us should have fun with this one.
Until next Thursday when we get together again to share poems, I hope you have a super Summer week…………………..and remember – we Angels are here if you need us………………..
Love Forever And A Day, Angel Sammy
YAY – thanks Angel Sammy for visiting us and sharing your poem…………also giving us such a hilarious photo for next week. I wonder what that kid’s thinking – “what have I done??” “where’s Mom with the washcloth?” or maybe “I’ll have a big surprise for Mom when she gets ready to change my diaper!!!”………..hahahaha
Happy Thursday – time for me to grab some Zzzzzzz’s !!
