It’s Thursday again – seems like just yesterday we had one of those doesn’t it? Thursdays are coming around quickly these days but then most days are a blur. I know we will all be glad when the virus is not “driving” our schedules and feelings. I will be MORE than thankful for that when it happens. Meanwhile I’m staying very thankful for the fact my Mom and Dad are healthy and doing all the things they need to do to STAY that way.
I got Angel Sammy’s post in time to share with you – those of you who are fans of poetry hopefully enjoy spending some time on Thursdays sharing your poems and reading other poetry from other friends – we sure do! Here’s Sammy’s poem AND a new photo for inspiration for NEXT Thursday when we meet again!
Hello from the Bridge poetry fans!
Here we are again on a Thursday – I hope you’ve written a poem inspired by the photo I gave you last week……………it’s a sweet photo really – a little plant taken root in a crack – surviving in what might not be the best of places! Here’s the photo followed by my poem to go with the image:
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©July 1, 2020
A tiny plant thrives in an unlikely place
Yet I see happiness in his upturned face
Fern like foliage and blossom of yellow
I see great persistence in the stem of this fellow!
The dirt under the pavement is enough to survive
As long as nothing crushes it, it might stay alive
It’s surroundings most certainly are quite crude
But you’ve got to admit – it’s got GREAT attitude !
That little flower sure has a lot of challenges ahead………..but don’t we all? We get through a lot in life if we just BELIEVE WE CAN.
So did you write a poem this week? If you did please let us know in the comments – you can give us your link or even write your poem in the comment box! Share – let us know you had fun with this photo inspiration. I enjoy finding photo inspiration for all of us – and I do hope you enjoy giving writing poetry a try. Here’s the photo for NEXT Thursday:
Beautiful colors…………………almost magical………….what does this photo make you think of? How does it make you feel and what do YOU see in it? Share all of that with us NEXT week when we get together again!!
Until then – keep safe – take care of yourselves…………………………..and be KIND to one another……………….please.
Love forever, Angel Sammy
Thank you Angel Sammy………………I sure did like your poem this week. Reminds me to STAY STRONG and keep watching out for Mom and Dad to make sure they stay STRONG like that little yellow flower!
Hugs to everyone, Teddy
