It’s that time again………..time to thankful and time to share poetry! Brian is the host for the Thankful Blog Hop and you can get to his blog and link up with us to be thankful by clicking the badge above. I’m thankful to have my house back to “normal” now that Mom and Dad have taken all the decorations down except for ONE THING – I miss my INSIDE TREE!!!!! The rest of the trees around here are OUTSIDE and it’s COLD out there! The INSIDE TREE was nice and cozy and warm and had a nice warm quilt under it and I had the BESTEST NAPS there. Anyway, Mom promised me it will be back again next year. I’ll try not to continue pouting. I’m also thankful that Mom and Dad are still OK.
Now I’ll share Angel Sammy’s poetry email he sent to me last night………..you can see not only the poem he wrote for the photo he gave us LAST week to use as inspiration but the new photo for NEXT Thursday!
Happy Thursday! Ready for some poetry??
I hope you’re ready and I hope (sincerely) that if you have written a poem for last week’s photo you will share it with us. Those of us who write a poem every week wish you would join us in using the photos I give you as inspiration for a little (or big) poem. Poetry is fun and everybody can write poetry. Give it a try will you? We’d love to have you join us!
Here’s the photo I gave you LAST week followed by the poem I wrote. By the way, I thought this was such a SWEET photo. I like to think the big old dog wanted to play ball with the little guy……”C’mon – let’s play!”…….
“A Boy And His Dog”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©January 6, 2021
He can barely talk but he knows a few words
“Dog”, “ball”, are the two his dog has heard!
A boy and his dog are pals right from the start
A bond that is strong and stays deep in the heart
The moment was captured on film thankfully
A memory to enjoy for his whole family
The boy will grow up and his kids will have pets
Unconditional love is as good as it gets……………..
Life moves on at a frantic pace but those little moments between kids and their pets – just like the ones between kids and their parents – are indelibly ingrained in everyone’s memory. They’re recalled throughout a lifetime in quiet moments while looking through albums or watching home movies……..it just might be that it’s all part of learning to LOVE – learning to CARE – learning about relationships. One thing I know for sure, I was mighty happy to be part of my family before I had to leave for the Bridge. I think my Mom and Dad will always remember me just like I will forever remember them.
Now – who wants to see the photo I found for you to write a poem about for NEXT week?
Gosh – I’m going to have to think about this one. Would this increase the value of the homes in the neighborhood or………………….not? HAHAHA Anyway should be fun writing a poem about this one. I hope you take it on as a project – you have a whole week to think about it!
Meanwhile, please continue to take good care of yourselves……………..and stay safe……….please.
Love forever, Angel Sammy
Thanks Angel Sammy as always for a fun poem and a great photo for next week too. I’m kind of thinking I wouldn’t want to live in that igloo house – no windows to watch birdies and squirrels out of for one thing!!!!!
