Hello! Welcome to Thursday. Thursday is THANKFUL DAY and it’s also the day we play around with poetry with Angel Sammy. First up we must be very thankful because we were extremely lucky with the Tropical Storm that blew up the coast yesterday and day before – we had a whole lot of rain but no tornadoes or damaging winds. Many were not that lucky so we SHOULD be very thankful. Hope all of you were that lucky too.
Angel Sammy’s email is below and he shares not just the poem he wrote for this week based on last week’s photo but gives us all a photo inspiration for NEXT Thursday too! Ready?
YAY – It’s Thursday – Time For Poetry!
Hello friends…………..greetings from the Rainbow Bridge. We Angels have been keeping an eye on things down there and it seems there’s a whole lot going on that we are unable to help you with. Particularly that nasty virus – you all will have to just do your best to follow the rules because some things we can help with and others you must help yourselves………OK?
Now let’s talk poetry. Last week I gave you (and me) a photo to use as inspiration for a poem and below you’ll find MY humble effort. I hope you wrote one too and if you did, tell us that in comments so we can read it and enjoy it. Poetry is a lot of fun and particularly if we’re all looking at the SAME photo and seeing different things – imagination is a wonderful thing!
“Lady In The Mist”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©August 5, 2020
The hounds guard the lady from every direction
Her gown moves in the breeze with sheer perfection
She waits in the mist for her love to arrive
The anticipation is building and the woods are alive
In the distance the sound of hooves faintly heard
Her heart beats so fast as she whispers one word
“Antonio” she says as her heart skips a beat
His black stallion arrives and their eyes and hearts meet…………..
Yeah kinda “mushy” isn’t it. Well I couldn’t help myself – even a cat has romantic feelings and thoughts you know! I found out that back in “the day” royalty would always ride with dogs alongside to provide protection. I thought these dogs in the photo were keeping an eye in all directions for danger. Very cool.
So I have another photo for you to use as next week’s poetic inspiration…………..here it is!
Another bit of nostalgia……………..thought this one might be a fun one and bring back some memories to some of you too (like my Mom!). So we’ll get together next Thursday and see what we’ve come up for this one OK? OK – it’s a date!
Have a good week until then………….stay safe………………….do the RIGHT things for YOU and for those around you………………..
Hugs, Angel Sammy
Always makes me happy to hear from you Angel Sammy. Thanks for the poem and for visiting all of us every week. I’m sending you and special hug from me and Mom!
