Happy Thursday everybody. Let’s get THANKFUL – we have some of the usual thankfuls this week like getting to go outside, finally getting some actual RAIN which we badly needed, a couple of cool days, and more good health news for my Dad. One thing we never take for granted though is that we DO have things to be thankful for. So many people claim they have NOTHING – but if they really thought about it, they would realize that sometimes just BEING HERE is something they should be thankful for! If you would like to share your thankfuls – click on Brian’s badge above to join in the THANKFUL THURSDAY BLOG HOP.
The other thing we do on our Thursdays, is show you the email we get from Angel Sammy for Poetic Thursday. He writes to all of us from the Rainbow Bridge to transmit his poem of the week and give us a photo to inspire us for the NEXT week. Ready to read it? Here it is………………..
Hello Poetic Friends!
Here we are in our usual spot in the blogosphere to share poetry we’ve written ourselves. Aren’t you proud of that? You should be. So many people have never written a poem – ever. It’s a great way to share feelings, thoughts, ideas – and most of all it’s fun when you use a photo of something as your “poetic inspiration”. That’s what we do each week. I give you a photo to think about and you write a poem based on the photo in some way.
I happen to know that my Mom and Dad are going to be taking a little break next week and won’t be returning until Thursday afternoon – BUT I’m still going to give you a photo prompt for next Thursday – when Mom gets home she will pop on the computer to see what you’ve written! We will have a post that day too – I’ve already written a poem for next week myself based on the photo you will see later in this post. WE ARE ON TOP OF THINGS ON EARTH AND AT THE BRIDGE…………………. Now, here’s the photo I gave you last week followed by my poem. I just LOVE this photo.
“Don’t Be Scared!”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©October 2, 2019
First day of nursery school and here we are
Dropped off by Mommy in Daddy’s car
I’m glad we have each other to hold on to
You’ll be here for me and I’ll be here for you!
I think that’s our teacher way over there
Try not to cry and try not to stare
Being away from home and our toys and stuff
Makes first day at school really, truly rough
But we’ll be just fine cuz we’ve got each other
After nap time we’ll go home with our mother!!
HAHA……this photo had SO MANY possibilities………in fact when I was writing this I had about five other ideas but I figured I’d just stick with this one! If you wrote a poem, let us know you did and share your link in our comments. Thanks to all of you who write poetry and play along with us. We love reading your work and hope you enjoy mine.
Here’s your photo for NEXT week:
I like this one a lot………..Indian culture is so interesting and we love their outfits and traditions. This one will be fun………………..hope to see your poem next week when we share!! Meanwhile, have a happy week………………….
Love from the Bridge, Angel Sammy
Thank you for visiting us Angel Sammy……………..
