Greetings! Happy Thursday – time for the Thankful Hop with Brian. If you’d like to tell us what you’re thankful for this week, just pop in and link up – click the badge above and you’ll be there!
I’ve got some thankfuls this week like the weather – it’s been incredible – we need rain desperately (so says Mom and Dad) but haven’t had a drop – just perfect days which I’m very happy about. I suppose I should hope for rain since Mom and Dad got the yard aerated and re-seeded but I can’t help it – I LOVE THIS EARLY FALL STUFF!! I’m also thankful that we got a wonderful surprise package from Dr. Basil and the B Team as part of his “Paw It Forward” initiative. We were chosen to be one of the recipients of a lovely package. Inside were a pretty blankie and a little fuzzy pink kitty toy for ME and a coloring book for Mom! Such a SWEET thing to do – we know there were a number of lucky kitties who got packages from TEAM BASIL – we sure appreciate being one of the LUCKIES!
Now for the second part of my blog today and that’s the poetic part. Angel Sammy sent me an email from the Bridge with his poem for this week based on the photo of last week – shall we see what he sent? Lets!!
It’s That Time Again Friends! Let’s get POETIC!
Thursday means poetry right? Well, I hope you had fun coming up with a poem to go with last week’s photo I gave you. There’s something about just LOOKING at a photo of a flower shop that activates your nose. Mom can see a photo of a flower and smell it. I can see a photo of cat food and smell it but somehow even though it’s the same thing – it’s different. Anyway, the photo I gave you was a beautiful Parisian flower shop. Here’s my poem written while I stared at the photo and I hope you will share YOUR poem that you wrote by letting us know in comments that you DID write one! If you haven’t tried writing a poem from a photo – give it a try – I think you’ll have fun!
“Can A Nose Smile?”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©September 25, 2019
Flowers have such happy faces
Reminding us of beautiful places
I often stop to smell them in their neat little rows
They make me smile BIG with my mouth and my nose!
Flowers make things better if you’re feeling a bit down
They make us happier than a silly old clown!
Their colors are amazing, their flowers are perfection
The bees that are attracted to them offer them protection!
They delight all our senses and brighten all our days
They do things for our moods in such incredible ways……
A bouquet of flowers is a gift from the heart
Whether condolence for a loss or a new love at the start
Want to see what joy you can bring with a beautiful flower?
I promise you this – they possess a magical power!
My Mom will often bring home a bouquet of flowers when she goes grocery shopping. The bouquet generally lasts about a week and my favorite thing used to be when she puts the flowers in a vase on the low coffee table because I could get a sniff! If it’s up on the table or kitchen counter I couldn’t enjoy them “up close and personal”………..Teddy always takes a sniff if he can. Outside he visits everything in bloom. Anyway, I thought it might be a fun photo for poetry. I have another photo for you to be inspired with for NEXT Thursday. Take a look at it, get a FEEL for it, then craft a poem to share with us next week!
Cute? Yes we thought so………..gotta wonder what these two are up to! We’ll see what YOU decide when we share our poems next week based on this photo OK? Meanwhile, enjoy these first weeks of Fall…………………my Mom loves Fall………….do you?
See you next Thursday! Remember, we Angels are with you every minute of the day!
Love, Angel Sammy
Thank you Angel Sammy. That was a nice poem – I really DO love to smell flowers. Only once did I decide to smell a flower that was occupied by a bee and I realized DANGER DANGER before I got stung. I bet that was YOU protecting me right? See you next week.
