Happy Thankful Thursday………another week has gone by since we last thought of what we’re thankful for and shared it in the HOP – I guess I’m sounding like a broken record here but I have the same thankfuls – Mom goes for her second shot on Sunday, Dad will go the week after that, we are healthy and enjoying lots of family time and “sort of” Spring weather around here. If you want to join in the Blog Hop – just click on Brian’s badge above and link up with us. Maybe your “thankfuls” are more interesting than mine!
I also have Angel Sammy’s Poetic Thursday poetry email to share with those of you who like writing or at least reading poems that were inspired by the photos Angel Sammy gives us every Thursday. I like seeing the photos he chooses to give to all of you to use as inspiration – looks like fun to me! Here’s his email from the Rainbow Bridge:
It’s POETRY Day!
Welcome to another chance to share poetry with me and with all the other folks who tune in to read what we’ve written OR to share with us what THEY wrote which was inspired by the photos I give you every week. It’s so much fun……..we have a great group of people participating and we’re always happy when someone new joins in the fun. All you do is look at a photo that I supply every week and write a poem about what you see/feel/sense when you look at the photo. Easy Peasy.
Here’s last week’s photo which we all used for today’s poems…………….my poem follows the photo:
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©March 31, 2021
So here we are at the edge of the world
Waterfalls that tumble into whirlpools that swirl
We thought this would be fun but who were we kidding?
Sheer drop in this water against rocks we’ll be skidding!
We all like a challenge – true adventure is our desire
But I’d rather walk across the Grand Canyon on a tiny little wire!
This photo is mind boggling and I know most of you like me are wondering if this trio of crazies were just looking or if they intend to go over. I think they are on the edge and deciding on a plan to go over. Where they will meet if they all survive – which spot on the precipice looks like the best launch spot – what they’d like to be said at their funerals!
Seriously – crazy time is what this photo is. I thought it would make for some good poetry. Can’t wait to read yours – let us know if you wrote one and where we can read it. I have a feeling we’ve got some whoppers this week. As for next week’s inspirational photo – here’s what you can use for inspiration for NEXT Thursday’s poetry day:
Well times have changed – I know our kitchen never looked like this but I’m sure my Mom’s Mom’s kitchen did. Thought we’d find something good to write a poem about with an old-fashioned look back at the way things were.
Hope to see you next week for Poetry! Meanwhile, take care of yourselves and stay safe………………………..
Love and Hugs, Angel Sammy
Loved your poem Angel Sammy – I can’t wait to read everyone else’s poems for this wacky photo! Gives me the willies just looking at it! I love and miss you!
