Thursday and time for thankfuls with Brian. If you click his badge you can go to his blog and join/link up to be thankful with all of us who participate. First Thankful: Thanks Brian for being so generous as to host this Hop! Second Thankful: Mom, Dad and I and all of our family and friends are healthy. We have all got to remember in these times to be thankful for our health and if we DO know someone who is fighting the virus – or any other illness – we must be thankful that they are getting care and stay hopeful they will be well again soon.
I always am thankful when I see an email from Angel Sammy on Wednesday night or Thursday morning because it means he’s sent me his POEM for the week! Here’s his email below.
It’s Thursday and I’m THANKFUL !
I’m thankful that I can still have fun with all of you who enjoy poetry even though I’m at the Rainbow Bridge and have been there since December 2016! I was able to get a great wi-fi connection to my little brother Teddy and that’s why I can still send you and him my poem every week along with a photo for NEXT week. It’s so much fun writing a poem with an interesting photo as inspiration isn’t it? If you haven’t done it – give it a try – just let us know you wrote a poem and either share it in our COMMENTS or give us a link to it so we can read and enjoy it.
Here’s the photo I gave you LAST week to use as inspiration for your poem for TODAY:
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©May 13, 2020
When the park is quiet and midnight approaches
When the people have gone home in their cars, boats or coaches
The magic begins at the midnight hour
Under streetlight glow giving darkness it’s power
The carousel horses who worked hard by day
Magically slip their harness and poles and run away
To romp and run in freedom as drives their spirit
Until the dawn bell rings as only they can hear it
The signal to return to their place on the wheel
Remembering their night and the freedom they feel
But the magic returns every night in the park
When carousel horses dance in the dark………………..
Oh how I loved this photo the second I saw it. It inspired a million thoughts and frankly – a million different poems and ideas but I settled on just this one. There is so much magic and beauty in the artwork and I wanted to capture that with my words. Hopefully I did!
I also found a goodie for your inspiration in writing a poem to share with us NEXT Thursday. Here it is – I hope you like it too!
Is this a winner or WHAT? Mom couldn’t stop laughing when she saw it after I sent it in an email to Teddy. Anyway, have fun writing a poem inspired by this photo for next week!
Please take care of yourselves and do all the things you know you MUST do to stay safe and healthy in these tough times OK? It’s important……….somebody somewhere NEEDS YOU to be here so do what you should do to stay safe.
Love and Rainbow Bridge Hugs, Angel Sammy
I sure loved your poem this week Angel Sammy and that photo for next week – well – it knocked my socks off (if I wore socks I mean) !!!
Love You Sammy……….From your brother Teddy
