WOW. Is it really Thursday already? This last week really flew by like crazy. Mom says time is doing that for her these days – flying. At any rate, we’re here to be thankful and then to share Angel Sammy’s poem this week and see yours too!
I don’t really have a “specific” thankful thing this week – I am just generally thankful. I have a comfy home, great big yard with lots of interesting woods to explore, and parents who love me. What more could I possibly want? I guess we all could come up with things that we WANT but as far as what I need – – – – I’ve got it!
Thanks to you too Brian for being our HOP-MASTER!
Now, onward to poetry………………here’s the email Angel Sammy sent me last night…………
Ready for some poetry?
Happy Poetic Thursday everybody. I hope we might have some new poets out there who decided to give writing a poem a try. Those of you who DID, please let us know you wrote one in our comments and give us your link – we’ll HOP on over there and read it. I’m sure it will be fun – this week’s photo is definitely INTERESTING don’t you think?
Here’s my poem from the photo I gave you, and the photo again for those of you who see this post and decide “WHAT THE HECK – I’LL WRITE A POEM NOW!” – if you do, come back and tell us you did OK?
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell August 7, 2019
Imagine if I’d cut this hair long long ago
Then I wouldn’t be stepping on it with my toe!
Imagine if you can trying to wash this hair to keep it clean
Too bad I can’t take it off and toss it in the washing machine!
Imagine how hard it is to fix it in the morning
Or even move from room to room without sounding out a warning!
Imagine sitting on a bus and needing an extra seat for your hair
Or seeing a bald man in front of a wig store realizing that you have hair to spare!
Some might think this hair is beautiful and wish they had it on their head
But I’ve always wished that I was part cat so all this hair I could SHED!
I just can’t imagine what it would be like to have so much hair………..apparently in the Victorian age, many women did not EVER cut their hair. I’m sure they would braid it up and wrap it round and round their head so it wasn’t as “ungainly” as it looks in this photo but still……………….. HAD to be a pain to take care of it. You’d need to hire a person to carry your hair like a train on a fancy dress behind you. Or maybe take a baby carriage with you everywhere and rest your wad of hair in it to push along as you walked. All I know is that even though my Mom gets depressed sometimes that her hair is thin and straight and she’s lost a lot of it through the years, she would NEVER EVER wish she had hair like this – in her wildest “HAIRMAGINATION” !!!
Here’s next week’s poetic inspirational photo………………..have fun with it!
This photo ought to be a gem to write a poem about! I hope you’ll consider giving poetry a try. I think you’ll have more fun than you THINK you will……………………I’ll look forward to reading your poems next week. Meanwhile, have a good week everyone……………..remember your Angels are watching out for you……………24/7 !
Love Forever, Angel Sammy
Angel Sammy you sure made me giggle with your poem this week. When you showed this photo to us last week I just knew you’d have something FUN to say in your poem. Maybe one day I will give poetry a try.
