Hello Thursday! Here we are – gathered together to remember what we’re thankful for. I continue to be thankful we are healthy here – Mom and Dad are in that “danger zone” age-wise but have been so good about where they go and how they go that so far – so good. I’m always good – except the past two days when it’s been too hot outside (heat index 108-109) I have only asked to go outside for SHORT periods of time. Mom and Dad are happy about that since they go with me. Even in the shade it was just too much – yesterday I asked to come back in after 15 minutes and Mom said “THANK YOU TEDDY!” when I asked for her to come inside with me.
Angel Sammy is keeping cool at the Bridge and no problem sending me his weekly email containing his poem for this week. Shall we take a peek?
YAY FOR POETRY DAY!
Hi friends…………..here we are again. Thursday and poetry to be shared! I hope you wrote one this week- if you did, let us know so we can read it! We want to see how you did coming up with something for the photo prompt last week.
Here’s what I did!
“No Teeth? No Problem!”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©July 22, 2020
Watermelon is so very refreshing and cool
Best part is that eating it requires no “tools”!
The pulp and juice just require your mouth
While it drips onto your shirt and heads south!
Such concentration this little guy shows as he gets all sticky
But nothing tastes better on a day that’s hot and icky!
Haha – this little kid really has his work cut out for him – but he looks up for it. What kid doesn’t enjoy a slice of cold watermelon in the summertime? I thought just about everyone would have an easy time coming up with a poem long or short (and mine is unusually short!) for this photo. I hope you will feel that way about the photo I found for NEXT Thursday!
uhoh – this one will be fun won’t it?!?!?!
I guess that wraps things up in the poetry department for another week. If you haven’t participated in poetry challenge – you should. I know you can do it – and it’s really fun. You have lots of poetry forms you can use including non-rhyming AND short haiku. I’ll see you next week to see what you come up with for the photo.
Meanwhile please stay safe………………….we are watching out for you as much as we can.
Love and Hugs, Angel Sammy
Thank you Angel Sammy……………I promise to take good care of Mom and Dad with your help……………………..see you next week!
Happy Thursday Poets! Hugs, Teddy
