Time for us to concentrate on what we have to be thankful for……………………..then we’ll talk poetry with Angel Sammy. As for thankfuls – well – we continue to be healthy and as anyone who pays attention to the news knows, the virus is running rampant so we’re very thankful we are still FINE here. Mom and Dad are home all the time except during senior hour at the grocery on Sunday when the doors open (Mom’s the only person in the store!!!!). Are they tired of the routine? No. The most important thing is that they are OK. There’s going to be another surge of virus after so many people thought they’d just have the usual Thanksgiving with family and friends over – little or no social distancing and heaven forbid wearing a mask. Anyway, PLEASE ALL STAY SAFE and DO THE RIGHT THING. We love you and don’t want to lose any of you.
Angel Sammy says all of the Angels at Rainbow Bridge are watching over us – they can’t make us be smart or make the right choices but they can be with us 24/7 in spirit. Angel Sammy sent us his poetic blog post for today – are you ready?
Hello Everyone………Ready for some Poetry?
Poetry lightens the load and is good for the soul……………so if you have NEVER written a poem before – please give it a try. You might surprise yourself! There are a lot of different forms of poetry and many of them don’t even rhyme. Some are VERY short too…………so be brave – you may find you enjoy poetry more than you think you will.
I gave you an interesting photo last week to use as poetic inspiration. Mom says she got email afterwards that many people have never been in a Fun House at a carnival. I think a lot of people think they’re scary. She told me that some of them ARE a little scary but some of them are just good fun. Here’s the photo I gave you and my poem follows:
“Fright or Fun?”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©December 2, 2020
They call it the Fun House but who’s to say?
Some see the unknown as going either way!
Will it be SCARY or will it be FUN?
Probably both for almost everyone.
Some people walk by and hear only screams
Whatever is in there may cause bad dreams!
There’s only one way to conquer this unknown…..
Put on a brave face and enter the Fun House zone!
My Mom says most of the carnivals she went to that had a Fun House WERE fun………….nothing scary………….the scary stuff was in the “Haunted House” or “Ghost Ride” at the carnival. Fun house was tame – some things pretty silly but at least you came out with a smile.
I have a photo for you to use for next week’s poetic efforts…………………I hope you can have some fun with it!
Oh boy – this will be a fun one………………we’re sticking with the Christmas theme………….I imagine there’s a lot of activity right about now in Santa’s Workshop don’t you? Let’s see what you come up with for next Thursday and I’ll look forward to seeing you all again then!
Love, Angel Sammy
So happy to read your poem and message Angel Sammy. Don’t worry – I’m taking good care of Mom and Dad……………..and they are taking great care of yours truly! I’ll see you next week dear Sammy.
