Where does the week go? It’s already Thursday and already time to be thankful on the Hop again. This is a great Hop – hosted by Brian and if you would like to VOICE your thankfuls out loud, click the badge above and link up with the rest of us. We all have things we’re thankful for but once a week it’s great to tell the world too!
I am also happy because it’s Poetic Thursday as well which is when Angel Sammy shares a poem with us and gives us a photo for us to write a poem about for NEXT Thursday when we will see/hear from him again.
First though – I want to say how thankful I am for my Mom and Dad. I know that they get a bit frustrated with me from time to time, especially when I’m almost constantly asking for one of them to take me outside. Fortunately for me, my parents don’t mind accompanying me – to keep an eye on me even though I’m in my very own yard – the foxes and other predators don’t know where my yard starts and ends but I do! I just love being outdoors……..and since we have a nice covered front porch with rockers Mom and Dad hang out there while I’m sniffing and poking around the yard and when I head to the BACK yard – we have a deck with chairs so they just transfer back there.
Lucky me! Now let’s share with you the email we got from Angel Sammy shall we????
Hello Poetic Friends!
Time for us to share some poetry. You had a whole week to think about the photo I gave you last Thursday – so let’s see what you came up with and I’ll show you what I wrote as well.
First though let me encourage you again to give writing a poem a try – some of you say “I can’t write a poem” and I always tell you that everyone can because it’s true. Poetry describes a feeling, a thought, a moment in time, and so many other things but it does NOT have to rhyme to be poetic. Just open your heart up, look at your subject (or think about it) and WRITE! Trust me – you CAN do it.
Here’s the photo I gave you last week and my poem follows:
“Ridin’ With Grandpa”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©May 12, 2021
C’mon kids – just hop in the back
Granny even packed us up a snack!
Out in the cornfield we’ll go a-ridin’
Might see a deer or a fox a-hidin’
“Grandpa go faster” I hear you say
But I want this fun to last – maybe all day
These days with you kids keep ole Grandpa young
I’ll treasure these moments ’til my days are done……
Hayrides – those three kids in the photo probably will talk about the day they rode out in the wagon on the back of Grandpa’s tractor for years to come. Moments like that are what fill our dreams sometimes. I can tell you that those of us at the Rainbow Bridge think of moments like this and I’m sure humans do too. Sometimes you might be looking at a person and see them smile for what seems like no reason – well sometimes it’s a memory popping into their head bringing a smile and making their day. You might think some things you do with or for another person are SMALL but to them, it could be BIG.
SO – how about a photo for NEXT week? You have a week to come up with something to share and if you wrote a poem THIS week, please tell us in comments that you did and give us a link so we can read it. Most of all thanks for joining in the fun every week!!
Not a big photo but what an expressive painting! I think we can all do a great poem with what we see and feel about this painting. We’ll find out next week right? See you then?
Until then please stay happy and healthy…………things are looking better for humankind on Earth we think – please keep it that way……………!
Love and Light, Angel Sammy
Oh I love your poem this week Angel Sammy……….I also can’t wait to see what everyone else did with their impression of the photo last week too!!!! Thank you for visiting us. I love and miss you.
