Thankful Thursday and I know that everyone who joins this Hop and many others as well are HOPING that Brian’s Dad, Mr. Terry, is still feeling good after his heart issues. We do hope his doctor figures out what happened but we were happy to learn the doctors in the hospital felt his heart was OK. That’s a BIG THANKFUL for all of us Brian!!
It’s also Poetic Thursday – Angel Sammy’s poetry day and all of you who have written a poem based on the photo he gave us last week, make sure and let us know you wrote one and give us a link so we can read it.
Hello My Poetic Friends – Let’s Share Poetry!
Another week has passed since we got together to talk about and share some poetry based on a photo – isn’t it fun to do that? Last week’s wacky photo of that abandoned village full of fake chateaus really got a lot of us thinking. That’s why I think it’s fun to write a poem based on a photo. We all see something different. Although just about everyone thought that abandoned village last week was – well – weird!
So here’s the photo I gave you as inspiration for the poems we’ll be sharing today…………..followed by MY poem!
“Times Have Changed!”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©April 29, 2020
In olden days in case you didn’t know
Women were covered from head to toe
Bathing suits were sure to please
Why? Because you could see those knees!
Seeing those fashions is a real education
Imagine those suits causing a big sensation
Flash forward to suits of today
The size of a bandaid some might say
One thing hasn’t changed though from days back then
Pretty girls in bathing suits are “appreciated” by men!
This photo is so cool. Things have changed a whole lot but showing knees and shoulders was a big step forward for womens’ bathing suits way back when. And of course they have just become smaller and smaller through the years. Hard to imagine that back in the day, there was a big hullabaloo over having a “Bathing Beauty Contest”……….however, even these days you can hardly have a pageant that there isn’t SOME problem that crops up!
Here’s your photo for next week – and remember, let us know if you wrote a poem based on the bathing beauties for this week……It’s another old black and white photo – FUN!
Have fun with this one – I know you will!!! See you all next week when we get together to share some poetry based on a photo. You can do it!
Love and Angel Hugs, Angel Sammy
Oh Angel Sammy I loved your poem and I can’t wait to see what you write for the King of the Pie Eaters next week!!!
