Thankful Thursday and Poetic Fun


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:

“Attic Treasure”

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 am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!

I’m Proud of all of you Poets out there…………and of my little brother Teddy who turned FOUR yesterday!   

Love, Angel Sammy

    • We sure miss that boy……..and know that you do too more than anybody. We don’t have stairs to our attic so I’ll never know what may be up there….maybe that’s good!

      Hugs, Teddy


  1. A most excellent poem Angel Sammy! Too HOT up in the attic here. We have never had an attic that was accessible. As a kid our houses had attics but I wouldn’t go up in them. My Mom had Christmas stuff stored up there, I remember that! Good Morning!


    • Yes – always Christmas stuff in the attic…..! Mom says she remembers some very HOT attics and in fact the attic in this house gets VERY hot. No stairs up to our attic here though so I can’t go play up there!!

      Hugs, Teddy
      Mom says GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Morning FLorideeeeeeeeeeeeeedooooooooooooooooooo


    • Mom and I loved your poem today Miss Dianna……..there are some really amazing poems today from this photo Angel Sammy found! I do believe that next week’s will be fun too!

      Hugs, Teddy


  2. when I was 9 and 10, we lived in an apartment for awhile. The attic belonged to the owners. I didn’t know all that, and I used to love going up there and looking at all the things there.


  3. I am glad you had a nice birthday sweet Teddy. Great poem from Angel Sammy. And thanks to your mom for finding us inspiration. Have a wonderful day! XO


  4. That really is a wonderful thankful Teddy! We enjoyed the Angel Sammy poem, the Dad says he remembers many treasures that were found in the attic long ago. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!


  5. We have never had a ‘usable’ attic, not my parents…but pawppy’s did, and it was like that too, filled with many treasures.

    There is even an armchair there, Teddy, did you see it! Just the right kind for an hour or two of reminiscing:)

    Now that next picture…a door to a secret treasure trove, no doubt!

    Glad you had a super Birthday!


  6. That was such a fun photo. It brings back many memories to Mom of her childhood toys, and of hours she spent playing and exploring in her Grandma’s attic.

    • Same here………….my Mom loved seeing that photo and all the things that were THERE that she had in her life all these years. Still has some of them – old records for instance. Nostalgia is a wonderful thing – the more years you have behind you the more memories you have and the more “stuff” in your attic!

      Hugs, Teddy


    • Well, when you move or have a “clear out” a lot of the old stuff doesn’t make the cut to STAY…..letting go of things is part of moving on but SOME things just belong in an attic forever!

      Hugs, Teddy


    • There were some AMAZING poems written this week and we think that door will open to magical poetry too!! We loved your poem and you’re right – it was the same “feel” as Angel Sammy’s this week. Thanks so much for being poetry pals with us!

      Hugs, Teddy


    • That was a wonderful poem – and you’re right – what happens when that attic no longer is in an OCCUPIED home? We’ll have to pack it all up and move the memories somewhere else for safekeeping I guess – can’t EVER let go of those for sure! Well done…………..

      Hugs, Teddy


    • Binky I had a very nice birthday – Turning four was fun…..! Glad that you liked Angel Sammy’s poem and we sure did like yours too – everyone seemed to have a whole lot of fun writing a poem for this photo. I think next week’s will be fun too don’t you?

      Hugs, Teddy


  7. Teddy, we are so sorry we missed your birthday. We hope it was the happiest birthday ever! Angel Sammy, your poem is so sweet and lovely. That attic really does look so cozy, and like a place filled with such fond memories. We always enjoy your days of poetry. Purrs!


    • That’s OK…… worries. I had a nice day – my gift from Mom and Dad was to be outside as much as I wanted to with them. It was fun! Mom also ordered me a Furbie which isn’t here yet but which I will love.

      Hugs, Teddy
