Happy Thankful Thursday! Brian is our host for this weekly event and if you’d like to join in the fun – just click the badge above and link up. I’m very thankful that I had so many nice birthday messages yesterday as I celebrate my Fourth Birthday. I’m a lucky guy to have good friends and a wonderful family. I would wish that for EVERYONE EVERYWHERE.
I also got my weekly email from my Angel brother Sammy along with his poem for this week AND a photo for next week’s Poetic Thursday challenge.
Happy Poetic Thursday !
Another week passes by and it’s time for us already to get together and share some poetic fun. Writing poetry doesn’t have to be a “chore” – it should be tons of fun because you can write whatever you FEEL – my photos that I give you are just meant to inspire you a little – give you something to study and find some words to express what the photo is “telling you”. Tons of fun and if you’ve never done it, let this be your first time. I’ll give you a photo a little later that you can use for NEXT Thursday’s get-together OK?
Here’s the photo from LAST Thursday along with my poem to share with you all:
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©March 4, 2020
In my attic resides a slice of my life
Memories have homes there along with the mice!
I’ve saved things that reminded me of some part of my past
Seeing them from time to time allows memories to last
When I’m up in the attic I cry – laugh – and smile
I slip into the past where I stay for a while
Important reminders of times long gone by
So many years I have lived – in the blink of an eye
When I want to remember how lucky I’ve been
I just go to the attic, sit down, and remember when…………..
I guess you can tell that this was more written for my Mom than it was written for me. For one thing, I would never have gone up into the attic at my house – you had to get there by ladder and ladders were NOT my thing! In fact, my parents have an unfinished attic whereas the attic in the photo is very “homey” and has a FLOOR………….I would have enjoyed that attic I think. My Mom has a large box of treasures from her past though and once in a while she’ll get it down from the closet in her office and go through them with a box of kleenex at the ready. A box full of memories……………..
So would you like to see what photo we’ll write about for next Thursday’s get-together?????
That ought to get your imaginations going! We’ll see how we all did NEXT Thursday. Thanks for participating in my Poetic Thursdays. If you wrote a poem for this past week you’d like to share with us, tell us in comments and give us your link. If you didn’t write one maybe the photo above will inspire you to write one to share NEXT week??
I’m Proud of all of you Poets out there…………and of my little brother Teddy who turned FOUR yesterday!
Love, Angel Sammy
Thank you for visiting us Angel Sammy….sending you hugs and kisses
Here are the birthday cards I got yesterday – thank you my friends!!
