Happy Thursday – and it’s a special day for yours truly – it’s my FIFTH birthday today. I was almost a year old when I was adopted by my Mom and Dad (which by the way is my BIG THANKFUL for today) – I was 11 months old when hey waltzed into the Animal Shelter and saw me. I made goo goo eyes at Mom and the rest is history. I am MORE than THANKFUL.
Today is also Poetic Thursday which is when my Angel brother Sammy sends us his poem of the week based on the photo he gave us LAST week to use as inspiration. We are supposed to write a poem every Thursday to share with each other. The photos are always fun and so far we’ve read SOOOOO many fabulous poems YOU all have written using Sammy’s photos to inspire your words!!
My Poetic Brother Angel Sammy
Let’s see what he wrote for all of us this week AND see what photo he chose for us to use for NEXT Thursday!
Greetings Poets and Happy Birthday Little Bro’ !!!
Let’s start off today with me reminding you all that YES YOU CAN WRITE A POEM. We get lots of notes from you saying you “can’t write poetry” when really it’s NOT that hard to do. Poetry doesn’t even have to rhyme. There are TONS of poetic forms – short, long, rhyming and not. It’s fun to use a photograph to inspire your poem and I give you one every week with a whole WEEK to come up with a poem to share.
Here’s the photo I gave you last week which hopefully you used to write a poem for today – if you wrote one, just tell us in comments here OR give us a link to where we can read your masterpiece!!
“My Comfort Zone”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©March 3, 2021
Mommy, Mommy, are you listening?
I’m so scared that my diaper is glistening
This kiddie wagon is awfully tiny
There’s hardly room for my diapered hiney!
What if I fall – what if I should crash?
What if I get a case of nervous diaper rash?
I see that you’re laughing but it’s not funny to me
Please get me out of this thing NOW and set me free!
Poor little baby – some people will do anything for a humorous photo and while this is actually adorably cute and funny to this baby it is no laughing matter! I think he or she is most definitely NOT pleased with this photo shoot. Babies make wonderful subjects for photos though – they do so many delightfully adorable things that it’s tempting to put them into situations that we think are entertaining but that they might not be so happy about. Anyway, I can’t wait to see what you’ve written for this photo. Speaking of photos – here’s next week’s for you to work with to write a poem for next Thursday.
Another Fun One !
There you have it for another week – hope you decide to write a poem for the above photo – we’ll read some poetry NEXT Thursday shall we? Meanwhile – stay healthy and safe and know that I love all of you and always will. Even all the way from the Rainbow Bridge!
Love and Hugs to all of you and especially my TEDDY BOY
Thanks Angel Sammy……..it means a lot that you gave me a special hug for my birthday………………I’ll see you again next week and feel free to visit me in my dreams ANYTIME!
