Happy Thursday! A big thanks to our buddy Brian for having this fabulous Hop which allows us to share each week what we’re thankful for. Want to join in? Click the badge above and link up to share.
This week I’m thankful that we haven’t had any visiting bears even though we did have a visiting fox the other night who insisted on screaming loud enough to wake me and my Mom and Dad up at midnight. It didn’t last long – either it got what it was hunting or a bigger predator chased IT away! We aren’t so sure we like living in a wildlife sanctuary (hahaha) – but we do have a lot of things out there and I guess I never really thought about it but we see: groundhogs, skunks, deer, fox, flying squirrels, owls, hawks, vultures, chipmunks, squirrels, snakes, and all kinds of birds. Just a lot of activity mostly down in our woods where you expect a lot of animals to live. Bears only twice in 23 years. So yes I’m thankful that while there are a lot of cool animals, they aren’t being aggressive. Our last bear was minding his own business in fact!
I’m also thankful I got Angel Sammy’s poem for the week……………..here it is:
It’s Time For Poetry Sharing!
Hello poetic friends……………did you write a poem this week? Good! Make sure and let us know you did in our comments here so we can read it. If anyone new is tuning in, we share poetry every Thursday – poems we have written that were inspired by photos that I give you to THINK about all week before we share on Thursdays. Give it a whirl. Photos inspire all kinds of creative poetry!
Never written poetry before? Well, that doesn’t mean you can’t…..you might like it. Poems don’t even have to rhyme – they just need to stir someone’s imagination when they read it. When you see a photo of ANYTHING, your mind tells you something about it whether it be good, bad, funny, sad – you feel different things that are easily converted into WORDS. That’s a poem!
Here’s the photo I gave you last week followed by MY poem…………..then I’ll show you the photo I have for you to use for NEXT Thursday’s Poetry Day.
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©July 17, 2019
YIKES, I hope the plastic sheet is on the floor
WOOPS I splashed some on the door
UHOH I’ve got it in my hair
EEEK I think it’s gone everywhere!
YAY I can wear my bowl like a hat
OH BOY Mom’s face got red at that!
“Basketti” is the funnest thing to eat
Tasty red sauce from my head to my feet
The only bad thing about “basketti”
Is that I’ll have a bath before I’m ready!
Baths at night are best when I put on my jammies
After Mom’s cleaned the food out from my nooks and crannies.
Tomorrow morning we’ll start over again
When I dribble my cereal milk down my chin!!!
There’s just no doubt that babies have FUN when they eat. This little kid sure had a blast with his “basketti” didn’t he. His Mom probably spent some time getting the mess cleared up but know what? She didn’t mind a BIT! It’s what Moms do. I know when I was a kitten once in a while I’d wind up with food on my nose or paw or chin and Mom never minded cleaning me up and I made sure to thank her with lots of love in my eyes!
Now here’s your photo for next week and I hope you will join us by writing a poem to fit this photo………………………c’mon you can do it………………
My Mom loves this photo. She says it brings back some great memories. Waiting for an ice cream sundae? Malted? Fountain cherry coke? Mom says she loved them all.
So – it’s a date – I’ll be back next week with MY poem – and I hope you will be here with yours to share…………………….until then – have a happy week!
Your Forever Friend and Poet, Angel Sammy
