Hi everyone. It’s “double day” here at my blog – we do THANKFUL THURSDAY with our friend Brian and POETIC THURSDAY with Angel Sammy. We always do our “thankfuls” first though because they are so much more important than poetry. These days we should ALL “talk out loud” about the things we’re thankful for and Brian’s HOP (which you can join by clicking his badge above and linking up) is the perfect spot to do that.
This week I have to say that we continue being VERY thankful that we’re all feeling just fine. Nobody in our circle of friends and family has the virus or is even sick with a cold! Everyone is healthy and I pray that all of us and all of you STAY that way. I’m also thankful that we got rain – I know that surprises you because you know how I love to go outside in my yard BUT we needed some rain. We got it – lots of it.
I’m also thankful that I got an email from my brother Angel Sammy at the Rainbow Bridge with his poem for this week AND his poem challenge for NEXT Thursday! Let’s see what he sent!
Happy Poetic Thursday!!!
It’s Thursday and time for poems. I hope you wrote one – I gave you a really sweet photo last Thursday and a whole week in which to write a poem based on what your thoughts were when you studied the photo. How’d you do? Hope you had fun with it – let us know in comments here if you wrote a poem and give us a link to where we can read it.
Here’s the photo I gave you last week – and my poem follows!
“Where There’s A Will……”
Wheeling across the finish line together
Friendship and meeting a challenge – there’s nothing better!
The sense of accomplishment is most incredible
Sharing this day will be unforgettable
They said we might not make it but we knew we could
Together we did it just like we knew we would
The human spirit is stronger than the curves life deals
Through life forever we’ll be moving along on our magic wheels!
Obviously I have no idea if these two are friends, more than friends or just two entrants in the race who found something in common and used it to give them the energy and drive to finish the race and feel jubilant about it. I love it. I saw this photo and knew this HAD to be written about.
Now – next week………..what have I got for you? How about this!
This just HAS to make you smile……………….I love it. We’re never EVER too old to give something a try right? Right! Anyway, have fun with this photo – I’m sure you will.
In the meantime and until then, please stay safe, stay happy, stay positive, stay hopeful, and BELIEVE in the “might of right”. I sure do!
Love, Angel Sammy
Thank you so much Angel Sammy. I look forward to hearing from you every week and seeing your poetry. I just can’t write like you do! Thanks for sharing with us. I’ll see you in my dreams.
