YAY! Time to call out the things we’re thankful for this past week AND combine that with our Poetic Thursday poem and challenge from Angel Sammy. First up is our THANKFULS. We have the same BIG thankful that we’ve had for months now which is that so far we have stayed safe from the evil virus. We remain hopeful that vaccines are in the near future and that we can one day in the NOT distant future wave goodbye to this incredibly scary virus. If you’d like to join the Thankful Hop at Brian’s – just click his badge above and link up with us – thanks Brian for hosting!!
We got our poem from Angel Sammy as always and I’m sharing it with you along with your challenge photo for NEXT Thursday! STAY SAFE!!
Happy Thursday Poetic Friends!!
Time to let your poetry shine! Every Thursday we gather together to share the poems we’ve written based on last week’s photo inspiration and this Thursday is like all other Thursdays in that regard – I can’t wait to read your poems.
Just a quick note from we Angels………….remember we are doing our best to keep you safe. We can’t do it all though – YOU need to take some responsibility too and wear your masks, do your social distancing, wash your hands ALL THE TIME and just stay home if you can. OK? We love you and want you to be safe.
So below is the photo I gave you to inspire you for your poem this week – followed by MY poem for this week!
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©October 28, 2020
Seeing this old photo makes all of us realize
People once didn’t feel like sardines when they flew the friendly skies
There was room to breath and move about the plane with ease
No pull down tray in front of you that squished your knees!
The stewardesses were helpful and always had a smile
From boarding the plane to the very last mile
There was a magazine cart, refreshments served for no extra cost
I’m afraid those comfortable flying days have been forever lost!
This photo is what my Mom remembers about so many of the trips and travel she and her family did back when her Dad was in the Air Force and they moved frequently. Roomy planes, delicious meals, and smiling helpful staff. These days it’s just not the same on SO many levels!!! Anyway, when I saw this photo I just knew it would make for good thoughts and fun poetry. If you wrote a poem, let us know in comments so we can visit you and read what you wrote.
Now, I bet you’d like to see what I found for your “inspiration” for next Thursday! It’s a simple photo of Fall…..but I’m thinking it’s very interesting in its’ own way. I hope you do too!
WOW. Sadly the first thing that came to my mind when I found this photo was the fires out West here in the USA. But thankfully the bright colors in this photo are provided by the sun and not fire. I love the single big tree taking it all in.
SO – have fun writing a poem to share next week…………and until then, please be careful and HAPPY!
Love and Light, Angel Sammy
Thank you Angel Sammy – your poem made me smile and I saw a smile on Mom’s face too! She remembers when her Mom made her wear her best dress, white socks with lace on the tops and her black patent leather shoes to get on an airplane. That was about 100 years ago I think. HAHA
