Thankful and Poetic Thursday

Standard

Happy Thursday and let’s get thankful with Brian!    If you’d like to join in the Hop just click his badge and link up with us.     Our chance to VOICE all the things we’re thankful for this past week or whenever.

I’m thankful we finally got a tiny bit of rain last night.  Weather guy has been predicting rain and we weren’t getting it.    Sometimes the mountains to our West change the pattern of a rain system as it comes over the mountains OR stops it entirely.    We got a little bit of rain during the night but Mom still got the lawn mowed.    Thankful for that too!    Also thankful that Mom and Dad seem less “stressed” lately – one of the other benefits of being vaccinated!

I’m also thankful I got Angel Sammy’s poem last night……….they sure have good wi-fi at the Bridge!

Time To Share Poetry!!

Howdy………nice to see all of you – this once a week poetry exchange is so much fun for me and I hope for you.    I give you a photo and you have a whole week to think about writing a poem using the photo as inspiration.   Funzies!

SO – let’s get to it……..here’s the photo I gave you last week for THIS week’s poem followed by the poem I wrote which this photo inspired in my brain!

“Peas Again??!”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell      ©June 9, 2021

 

Mama, Mama, oh pretty please

Don’t make me eat any more of those peas!

You say they’re good veggies and taste real yummy

But I’ve got to tell you they rumble in my tummy!

They’re squishy and icky and please listen Mother

They go in one place and immediately out the other!

 

HAHA……sorry – I couldn’t resist.    This baby’s expression is so perfect for so many things.   I could have written five poems but decided on the “OFF” one as my favorite.   I can’t wait to see the poems you wrote for Mr. Grumpy.    If you wrote one, you can share it in our comments OR give us a link to your blog so we can read it!

Kids are so much fun to take photos of and to “give voice” to their endless facial expressions.    I have used many kids’ photos since we’ve been doing Poetry together and they always are delightful to use as poetic subjects.

I found this photo for us all to use for next week’s inspiration……hope you like it!

Wheeee!    I could even drive this one!!!     Have fun writing a poem for this photo……….and yes this is a REAL vehicle not a toy!

See you all next week – when we get together to GET POETIC.

I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!

Hugs, Angel Sammy

  1. We got some rain, too…quite a good soaking on Moday, and some more Wed afternoon. Petcretary got caught in all of them…she got soaked!! LOL!
    But she just said, Thanks for the rain, but couldn’t you have waited five more minutes before letting it start? LOL!

    I look quite sad,
    and ready to cry,
    Or maybe I’m mad
    Oh well, I’ll tell you why…
    Mommy will be lucky;
    I just did
    Something yucky!!

    (Nope I didn’t copy your idea, I had that on a piece of paper since a few days ago, LOL! Great minds think a like…and know all about babies!!)

  2. He looks so proud and cocky showing off his new ride to his girlfriend…….. until he realizes there’s nowhere for her to sit, so she leaves him for the dude with the jacked up pickup truck…

    • My brother was the pea-hater as I remember….but he didn’t like ANYTHING that was green! Some of that he’s gotten over but here he is in his 70s and I believe he still hates broccoli!!!

    quite THANKFUL for. Next weeks pic will be quite the challenge … love being part of this each
    week.

  4. Nice poem. He will grow up to love peas! I detested mushrooms and cashew nuts as I kid. Minute I hit 22 I started to love them. 😀

    • Oh I actually remember those Isettas…..they actually had one in a used car lot near where I lived many years ago. I’d go over to see it (it was there for a long time!!) when I was at the Burger King next to the car dealer. HAHAHA They were cute.

  7. Those are good Thankfuls and our Dad is so happy he has the Vax too. Sammy Dad says he felt the same way about those icky peas. In fact he was caught hiding them behind the encyclopedia case (remember those?) and got a talking too. MOL Purrs my friends

    • HA! My Mom says she used to sneak some things from her plate that she didn’t like into her napkin in her lap then say she had to go to the bathroom so she could flush them away. I guess we all have our WAYS!

  8. Our poems had a similar theme. Yours was terrific, Sammy. They always are! Our mom’s poem is at: https://thecatonmyhead.com/ptoo-a-snooze-on-the-catio/
    Next week’s photo looks familiar, and it should make for a fun poem. That’s for challenging our mom every week. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet

    p.s. Mom says you might be right about us using a photo of a small car a few years ago for a poem….but her memory isn’t so good!

  9. We have had rain (and snow) this week. I will be happy to see the heat comeback (except the mosquitoes will be horrific). I LOVE Sammy/Your poem! It reminds me of my little sister! She hated peas because they were squishy! Thanks for the terrific memory and for being one of my Sparks!

    • Snow? OH NO! My Mom says when she was a little girl she would absolutely REFUSE to eat a pea that wasn’t “whole” – if it was squished she called the “dead peas” and wouldn’t eat them. When she was told to eat them anyway she would cry and cry at having to eat dead peas. My Mom was rather emotional wasn’t she…..HAHAHAHAHAHA

      Hugs, Teddy

    • We had rain all night and Mom is afraid to open the front door to let the WET HUMID AIR in. I’m sure I’ll get to go out on the front porch today but the rain may keep me from doing any wandering!

  10. Oh YES, it had to be those peas!!! Mom remembers how much all the grands hated peas as babies, and probably still do. Mom actually likes them cold in her salad:)

    We had oodles of rain in May but now that the heat and humidity of Kansas have arrived, the ground is very dry. Time to get the sprinklers going.

    • Peas are handy little items for lots of meals – my Mom says peas almost “make” fried rice and so many other things just wouldn’t be the same without the adorable little round bundles of green!!!!
