Happy Thursday. Another chance to voice our Thankfuls with Brian’s Hop and another chance to read some poetry from Angel Sammy. As always, if you would like to join Brian’s Hop, just click the badge above and link up to the rest of us who will share what we’re thankful for this week.
My tough old Mom and Dad are still healthy……..maybe that’s because they are doing what they should with masks and distancing and staying home as much as possible. OR maybe it’s because I’m MAGIC and have been protecting them with an impenetrable shield so they don’t get the virus or flu or ANYTHING?????? HAHAHA Anyway, that’s what I’m thankful for again this week. Also that we have BEAUTIFUL Fall weather – cool and gorgeous leaves for me to play in too!
Angel Sammy’s email to me from the Rainbow Bridge came through alright – we sure have a good wifi connection! Here’s what I got from him this week.
Hello My Earthbound Friends!
It’s time for us to forget all our worries and problems and have a relaxing time sharing poetry shall we? Writing is relaxing and poetry is a challenge for some but once you get the hang of it and let your imagination take you to the places where inspiration can be found, YOU can write a poem! I’m helping you along by giving you a photo as inspiration every week.
Here’s the photo I gave you last week to use for TODAY’S poetry………..followed by my poem for the photo. Ready?
“Floating My Boat”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©October 14, 2020
Floating on a warm, calm sea
It’s the sailing life for me!
My swan boat quietly floats
I hate noisy engine boats!
‘Round and round I turn
Sunscreen on so I don’t burn!
Mom lets me float until I cry
She’s in her lawn chair standing by
Then it’s time for my lunch and the sailing is done
This backyard pool of mine sure is fun!
This photo is so cute. I’m sure that “fuzzy blue wall” in the background is the edge of a little backyard pool this “sailor” is floating around in. Getting a little fresh air and enjoying a relaxing float in the pool. This little guy will probably grow up to be a sailboat racer or Olympic swimmer or something to do with water…….he had a safe introduction to the world of water at any rate. Did you write a poem for this photo? If you did let us know in comments so we can visit you and read yours!!
Here’s the photo I selected to be our inspiration for NEXT Thursday’s poem……………………….hope you like it…………
Mom says she has fond memories of bowling alleys back in the 60s/70s. This photo is from the 50s. Anyway, thought it might be fun to write a poem about……………….!!
Until next Thursday when we meet again – take care of yourselves, hug your pets a lot because they need it as much as you do (!), stay safe and healthy…………and I’ll see you soon.
Love, Angel Sammy
Fun poem this week Angel Sammy! Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy Rainbow Bridge schedule to come visit all of us once a week. I miss you and so do Mom and Dad.
