YAY – Thursday is here and time to share our thankfuls for the week – if you’d like to join us – click the badge above and link up…………………..it’s also Angel Sammy’s Poetic Thursday but that’s later…………..for now, I will repeat what I’ve been thankful for since the beginning of this roller coaster of a virus. So far, Mom, Dad and I are healthy. Mom and Dad are doing all the things we’ve been told they need to do to stay safe. Hopefully they WILL stay safe and so will you! We’ve seen people gathering in huge crowds and wondered “what are they thinking??”………….but everyone has a mind of their own and will do what they want. My Mom and Dad are doing what seems to be the SAFEST. They aren’t in a hurry to see Angel Sammy until “it’s TIME” to.
Speaking of Angel Sammy here’s his email which I received this morning from his laptop at the Rainbow Bridge………
Hello Poetic Friends……glad to spend a little time with you today!
We’ll share poetry – whatever you wrote with last week’s photo as inspiration – please let us know if you wrote a poem and give us your link so we can read it. I keep hoping more of you who visit will DIVE IN the poetry pool and write a poem….might be for the first time – or not – but give it a try. I bet you will be VERY PROUD of yourself and I know I will be proud of you too.
We angels have been keeping watch over all of you – it’s hard for us to see the confusion down there with rules and what humankind is willing to do to keep themselves safe as well as who has decided to just pretend it’s not happening and instead carry on as usual. Our fear for you is that this virus will roar back like a lion………we hope not! But please do take care of yourselves – the Bridge is a beautiful place but don’t be in a BIG HURRY to get here! OK? OK! Now let’s do some poetry.
Here’s the photo I gave you to write a poem about last week……………followed by MY poem.
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©May 27, 2020
Some people long to touch the sky
Living like birds in trees on high
Buying a home on the 50th floor
Would certainly cause my heart rate to soar!
Cats like heights but this is a bit much
I like my paws on green grass with a gentle touch
Concrete and glass soaring high up in the air
Eye to eye with passengers in planes I’m sure they would stare!
There’s something to be said for having a view
But I just wouldn’t feel SAFE above Floor #2 !!
HAHA………….well maybe a little higher than the second floor but not that much – Mom and I talked about it and decided maybe as high as the 15th floor but no higher. She’s been a lot higher in a hotel room with one of these see thru balconies and she thought it wouldn’t bother her to be out on it but it was (her words) “JUST TOO WEIRD”. Well I guess we all have our limitations right?
Now here’s your photo for next week – you have a whole week to craft a poem to share based on this photo so start thinking now!
I love this photo………..you know when I’m looking for photos for our poetic fun there are SO many photos to choose from no matter what I THINK I have in mind – the “right one” always surprises me when I see it. I know instantly it’s the one. Well that happened today. I hope you have fun with this one – I have tons of ideas already!
If you wrote a poem for the photo from last week – please let us know and give us your link OR write it out in our comments – we want to know where your imagination took you……….and we’ll be anxious to see NEXT week how THIS photo inspires you.
Meanwhile please continue to stay safe………….do what the experts are telling you that you NEED to do to remain safe……………it’s not worth the risk……………….
I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!
Love and Light, Angel Sammy
Thank you for visiting all of us again this week Angel Sammy. I think everyone enjoys reading your poetry and seeing you – I know I certainly do!!!!
Hugs and love, Teddy
