Happy Thursday! Thankful and Poetic Day around here. First up – THANKFULS. Still remaining very thankful that Mom and Dad had both vaccinations and while they’re still masking up and distancing they just plain FEEL more comfortable knowing they are protected. I’m also thankful that my Mom was finally “discharged” formally from oncology services at the Cancer Center. Her oncologist followed her for an EXTRA long time after her recurrent melanoma in 2007 because Mom’s “pattern” had been ten years between bouts. Well Mom passed ten years with no further recurrence by SEVERAL years and never minded the yearly checkups and blood work. It’s now thought she’s “safely” beyond the window of opportunity for a recurrence. Anyway, we’re celebrating that.
The second thing we do on Thursdays is enjoy a poem from Angel Sammy – my brother I never met – as he transmits his poem to me via email from the Bridge and I share it with you. He also sent a photo for NEXT week’s poetic inspiration. Let’s see…………..
Another Thursday! Let’s Get Poetic!
Hi everybody. Hope you enjoyed coming up with a poem for the photo I gave you to work with this week to share for today’s get-together. You all did a WONDERFUL job last week with your “HOMEGROWN” fruit and vegetable stand poems. All of them were spectacular.
Here’s the photo I gave you last week – AND my poem inspired by it:
“Snow White and The Seven Ducks”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©April 28, 2021
The leader of this pack is a “tufted” duck
Perhaps her little “hat” brings her lots of luck
Her escorts behind her as she leads the way
On their way to the pond for a swimming day
The third duck in line has a darker beak
The last duck in line looks like a bit of a sneak!
The line moves slowly as the ducks move along
Perhaps they are singing Snow White’s favorite song?
“Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it’s off to the pond we go
They may not be seven dwarfs but they put on quite a show!
Oh I just couldn’t resist – the face they were white ducks and there were a total of EIGHT of them – too tough to pass up a chance for a giggle. I hope you all had fun writing a poem for this photo. So many things came to mind – and honestly until I saw sitting here starting to write this poem this particular idea had NOT come to mind!
Anyway, I have a photo for you to use for NEXT week’s photo poem fun……..ready?
WOW………this should make for some interesting poetry………sure makes an interesting PHOTOGRAPH. Biggest Secretarial Pool in the world??? Have fun with it – I’m sure you will. We’ll meet next week same place and SHARE!
Have a wonderful and safe week…………………..life is short enough – don’t make it shorter by taking chances – get your vaccinations everyone!
Love Always, Angel Sammy
Angel Sammy I loved your poem today. I can’t wait to read what everyone else came up with too! Thank you for making Thursdays so much fun. I’ll see you next week here but in my dreams every single night.
