HELLO THURSDAY! Time for us to talk about our thankfuls for the week AND also time for us to see what Angel Sammy has written for his Thoroughly Poetic entry this week! I always start with my thankfuls because they are SO IMPORTANT. This morning when I woke up I was thankful because the snow we were to get amounted to a SMALL amount and it was only on the grass and not on MY sidewalk……I was able to get Mom to take me for a sidewalk walk although I did NOT walk on the grass because it was cold on my toesies. Usually I don’t mind the snow but it was my first encounter of the season and I have to get my toes toughened up before I can walk on the snow without gasping !!!!
Now onward to Angel Sammy’s post from the Bridge!
It’s Poetry Time!!!
Another Thursday and you know what that means. Time for us to share poetry. If you wrote a poem for last week’s photo then please let us know in comments that you did – we want to read it! It’s super that several of you have taken up the poetry challenge – keep it up…….you’ll be addicted in no time.
Here’s last week’s photo followed by my poem to go with it:
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©December 11, 2019
The ice grips my bow in its cold hand
As winter settles on the river and on the land
I long for sunny days to set me free
As through the icy mist the bright sun I see
To be out with my master when he goes fishing
If a genie was here that’s just what I’d be wishing
The arctic freeze sends shivers down my keel
The ice becomes harder and so cold do I feel
Soon the weather will warm and I’ll get my wish
The open sea and salty air as my master and I fish………….
Just imagining how this boat – and his fellow boats – must feel when ice keeps them stuck in the water and they miss enjoying the warm waters of Spring and Summer. Who’s to say they don’t have feelings too like we do? I just had a feeling if I could ask the boat what it was thinking the moment this photo was taken – this is what I might have heard.
That was a fun photo and by the way – a beautiful one as well I thought. Whoever took it had a real “eye” for great composition!
Are you ready for the photo you can use to write your poem for next Thursday when we get together again??? Good – here’s your “holiday appropriate” challenge for next week:
Look familiar? Trying to get ALL the shopping done in one day – impossible!
Anyway, I hope you have fun coming up with a poem for this photo……………I know that I will. I’ll be looking for you next week right here on my little brother Teddy’s blog. I hope it’s a date?
Lots of Hugs from the Rainbow Bridge – Angel Sammy
Thank you Angel Sammy………………….I got cold just looking at that photo for this week. You loved going out in the snow and climbing through high snow piles but I don’t – We may both be gingers but I’m definitely not a SNOW CAT like you were!
