Hello Friends and Hello Thankful Thursday. Another week has flown by and we are still feeling fine here and SO thankful that’s the case. One only has to watch the news – just once – to realize that the world is imploding/exploding all around us. In almost every way. We might have our heads in the sand up here on our hill in our town in our safe home but right now that’s precisely what we need/should do. So we are. Thursday is our day to be thankful with Brian but we are truly thankful every day we wake up and realize we’re still here!!! If you’d like to join the wonderful and THANKFUL-FILLED Hop, just click the badge above and join in by linking up.
I got my weekly email from my poetic Angel brother Sammy…………..his poem based on the photo he gave us last week is there………and I always feel just plain “better” after I read his messages anyway. I hope you do too!! Here’s his email:
Hi Friends and Lovers of Poetic Fun!
Hope you all are healthy and happy. You know we are always happy at the Rainbow Bridge but we watch what’s happening with all of you – every single day – and while we can’t make things better for you – we DO care. Remember that!
Now onward to poetry fun…………did you write a poem for the photo I gave you last week? Did you? Well GOOD! Let us know you did in our comments here so we can read it. I try to find what I believe to be interesting and fun photos for you to use as a “launch pad” for your poems. It’s a chance to let your imagination fly free and maybe say something you might not otherwise say…….or perhaps express yourself in a complete flight of fancy!
Here’s the photo I gave you for THIS WEEK’s poem – along with my poem for the photo……………then I’ll show you NEXT week’s photo inspiration!
“Thank you Sam”…….”Thank you Mam”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©August 12, 2020
Sam enjoys making his dairy delivery rounds
But has found this past year that he’s gaining pounds!
Mrs. Smith makes the best fruit pies on his route
He’s pretty darn sure that’s what is “tightened his suit” !
The ladies appreciate his deliveries and they’re all so nice
And he can’t resist their cakes and pies when he’s offered a slice!
So Sam delivers their dairy orders and makes out pretty well with sampling the baked goods along the way. I’m sure the ladies appreciate him as much as he appreciates them. My Mom says she can remember when she was about eight or nine, they had a metal milk box on their front porch – supplied by whatever the dairy was that delivered milk. Had the diary name on it of course. These days I imagine people would be afraid to have one on their front porch because someone would steal it along with their milk delivery! This is what it looked like (although the dairy was not this one):
Mom says she was never up early enough to actually SEE the milkman in his truck delivering milk but there was always frosty cold bottles of milk in the metal milk box every morning!
SO – I hope you will try to write a poem for this coming week’s photo – we’ll get together Thursday to share poetry based on the below photo so you have a WHOLE WEEK to come up with something to share with us. YOU CAN DO IT!
Love this tiny chapel…………………I bet this inspires some great poems!!! I already have an idea……………..do you? See you next Thursday – in the meantime please stay happy, and healthy, and hopeful.
Love to you all! Angel Sammy
Thank you for sending us your poem this week Angel Sammy……………….I always enjoy your poetry and I hope everyone plays along with you and writes one for the photos you find! I love you!
