THANKFUL THURSDAY is here! We celebrate that thanks to Brian who gives us a chance to talk out loud about what we are thankful for. Click his badge and link up with us. After we are thankful we get POETIC with Angel Sammy’s Poetic Thursday. So Thursday is busy around here! We’re very thankful to say not only is our weather becoming more Spring-ish but we are still healthy here at my house. Mom and Dad have been waiting/waiting/waiting for their vaccine but probably will be waiting quite a while longer so I’m happy they are remaining healthy.
Now, what do you say we take a look at the email Angel Sammy sent last night from his Rainbow Bridge laptop?
Let’s Get Poetic!
Happy Thursday everyone. Our time to share poetry based on a photo. Always a challenge. I’m so happy that many of you have been joining in on this fun exercise in creativity and I hope man more of you decide to give it a whirl. If you write a poem, you can tell us you did and give us your link in my COMMENTS. We’ll visit and see what you came up with. It’s a fun exercise using a photograph as our inspiration for a poem. We all see the same photo but we come up with our OWN way to “look” at it!
Here’s last week’s photo and my poem:
“Fearless Sun Worshippers”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©February 24, 2021
Crowded beaches are a rare sight these days
Ignoring social distancing at the ocean and in other ways
The call of the sun and water is quite strong
But overdoing almost anything is terribly wrong
If you go to the beach to enjoy peace and quiet
The noise at a crowded beach is like attending a riot!
When I visit a beach it’s to walk along the sea at dawn
There are no people around – all the noise is gone
Or I might go at sunset at the end of the day
When sun worshippers are home nursing sunburn in some medicinal way
I like hearing seagulls and waves rushing to shore
I’ll enjoy each restful sound until peaceful beaches are no more…………..
First of all, I’m dedicating this to my Mom……in fact I wrote it like SHE would have written it.
One day I’m sure beaches will all look like the one in this photo as people escape the heat in the summer – or they will become so polluted nobody will go to the beach any longer – and I hope I’m VERY VERY wrong about that! The beach is there for everyone to enjoy but we must protect wildlife, not pollute our water, and hope that the beauty of our world will be around for all to enjoy for eons to come.
Here’s your photo for NEXT week’s photo and remember – tell us in COMMENTS if you wrote a poem you’d like to share.
OH YES – I love this photo…………………….I bet there will be some super poems about this little (?) bundle of wagon-riding baby! Remember, this is your inspiration for NEXT week’s Thursday poem to share so get to thinking NOW about what you could write!! I know I’ve already got some ideas.
In the meantime, have a good week – keep safe – your Angels are watching……………………………….
Love, Angel Sammy
Love next week’s photo Angel Sammy and you really honored our Mom with your poem THIS week with the crowded beach – Mom has NEVER enjoyed crowded beaches. I hope you and all our Angels at the Bridge will keep watch over us all…………………until we meet at the Gate.
YAY – the snow is gone!!!! Love, Teddy
