These days I think we’re really thinking more about the things we are thankful for – at least I know me and my family are…………and what’s #1 on our list? We’re very thankful to still have our health. It definitely PAYS to do what we’ve been told to do to stay safe. Masks, distancing, the whole “nine yards”. Many who don’t will wind up paying the price by getting sick. We’re also thankful lately for the gorgeous Fall weather. We’ve had some really cold mornings but so far no hard frosts and the leaves are taking their time turning which is also nice. Last year they all just turned brown and fell to the ground without giving us the beautiful show we’re used to here in Virginia.
I’m also very happy that we continue to get Angel Sammy’s poem every single week. I DO look forward to that – I hope you do too!
Hello Poetry Pals!
Time for us to get together and share poems that we’ve written during the days since last Thursday when we met. A whole week to come up with a poem that reflects what we see or feel when we look at a photo. I love finding what I think will be a fun and inspiring photo for all of us to use each week – I sure hope you’ve having fun too!
Here’s the photo I gave you for poem-writing this week followed by my poem for this photo:
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©October 7, 2020
Birds of a feather we may not be
But we can still be pals – you and me
We both have the need for food and shelter
No roaming the streets living helter skelter
We found forever homes where love prevails
Smooth sailing through our lives with wind in our sails.
We may not have come from the same gene pool
But in our lives with our humans we know love rules
When we need a friend or a pal we know where to go
Our friendship is real – it’s not “just for show”!
Life can be tough for human guys and gals
But in the animal world cats and dogs can be pals!
I know lots of families who have cats and dogs (and birds and fish and guinea pigs and – well you get the picture!) and everyone gets along just fine. The cat and dog in this photo seem to have a special relationship. I know that as an “only cat” in my house for almost 18 years it probably would have been tough to introduce another cat or a dog into the house. I was very used to ruling my roost! But I think I would have tried to make friends – after all, we ALL need a friend. My Mom and Dad were always there for me – like they are for Teddy now – but I think maybe another animal to “talk” to, snuggle with, grow up with – would also be very cool.
Now I have another photo for you for next Thursday when we get together – so you have a whole week to write a poem for this photo – easy peasy huh?
Cool little dude huh? Will make for a fun poem I think. So start thinking about how this photo makes you feel – or what you see in the photo – that’s poetic material you know!
Meanwhile, stay safe as you can……………stay home if you can…………..The Angels are watching and helping as much as we can but it’s up to YOU to do the right thing……………….
See you next Thursday Poetry Fans! Love, Angel Sammy
Thank you Angel Sammy……………………we’ll look forward to seeing you again next Thursday………………….
