Happy Thursday everyone – our day to be both Thankful and Poetic. Thankful always comes first – it’s much more important anyway that we give thanks for all we have. If you would like to join in the gang who gets thankful every week at Brian’s blog, please just click the badge above and link up with us. Easy. Share what you’re thankful for. I know for us at my house, yesterday’s 9/11 remembrances reminded us again to be thankful for being safe and secure. We hope nothing like the 9/11 tragedy ever happens again and are thankful that so very many people contributed to the rescue, rebuilding, and memorial efforts at all three locations that were devastated on that terrible day. I say “people” but I actually should say “people and animals” because so many dogs helped find the living and the dead.
The Poetic part of today is thanks to Angel Sammy. He always loved writing poetry (usually with Mom!) and even after he went to the Bridge he decided to carry on thanks to his wifi connection at the Rainbow Bridge by sending us an email containing his poem of the week based on the photos he gives everyone. He tries to find some cool photos to spark everyone’s imagination then on Thursday everyone SHARES their poetry! Here’s his email from last night:
Happy Thursday my Poetic Friends!
Time to gather together and share our poetry. I look forward to Thursday every week because it’s so much fun to read what you’ve come up with based on the photos I give you; sometimes silly, sometimes serious, sometimes thought-provoking but I do try to mix things up and make it something for you to look forward to.
Which reminds me – just a little note about the photo that I will be giving you today for NEXT Thursday. Next Thursday is a big day for pet bloggers because it’s “TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY”………there are always blog parties and costumes and lots of fun so I found a very cool “pirate themed” photo which will be your inspiration for NEXT Thursday’s poem. I bet you all can come up with something interesting based on the photo I’ll give you AFTER I show you last week’s photo and my poem! Ready?
“What The Heck IS That?”
poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©September 11, 2019
You say it’s called a velomobile?
Are you positively sure that it’s for real?
Recumbent bike with a cover on top
I guess you can’t speed and get stopped by a cop!
If it rains I suppose you won’t get all wet
But just imagine the strange looks you’ll get!
If you want to ride your bike in rain, sleet or snow
Just pop on the top and away you go!
You can make your own cover or buy one it seems
For gas-free transportation – the ride of your dreams!
For getting around in your neighborhood or small town
I suppose it’s the cheapest transport around!
No worries about maintenance, gas or oil
Your feet and legs get a workout as they toil!
My only question – which I hope you don’t hate…..
Is how the heck do you use this if you go out on a date?????
HAHAHA. OK – I got silly but it was fun to write a poem about such a clever thing. My Mom exercises on a recumbent bike at the gym where she belongs and loves it better than riding an actual bike. She also said than when she and my Dad have been in Europe they saw quite a few of these – you could rent them for the day to get around on your own and they saw people riding them in the parks, streets, on the sidewalks. So if you wrote a poem about this funny little “machine” – let us know you did in COMMENTS here so we can find your poem and enjoy what you thought as you look at the photograph!
Now here’s the photo for NEXT Thursday which as I said is “TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY”………………
Oh boy – this guy looks like a SERIOUS pirate doesn’t he. I would not want to run into him on the high seas! Let’s see what you do with this one……………………..
In the meantime, have a good week ahead………………I’ll look forward to seeing you next Thursday – same time, same place, same poetic fun.
Remember, love is forever…………..
Hugs, Angel Teddy
Thank you Angel Sammy! I’ll look forward to hearing from you again next Thursday unless of course you visit me in my dreams!
