Happy Thursday and as you know it’s a THANKFUL Thursday – a day we can express what we’re thankful for and share it with everyone else who has things to share in the “thankful” department. If you’d like to join in the Blog Hop just click the badge above and LINK UP.
The BIGGEST Thankful today is that all of us who know Sawyer from The Cat On My Head and have been wondering WHERE OH WHERE he had gone (he’d been missing over a month after escaping his home) has been found. Sawyer is now back where he belongs and we couldn’t be happier. We are SO THANKFUL he’s safe and sound and home again.
I’m also thankful that my Mom and Dad had their first eye exams in three years – Mom knows she has cataracts but the doctor said she could decide when she wants to have surgery to fix her eyes and she’s thinking this Fall maybe. No hurry but you shouldn’t wait too long to do it (so says her doctor!). Dad’s eyes were unchanged – he wears reading glasses only.
Another thankful is that Angel Sammy’s poetry post arrived in my email – he never lets us down does he. No matter how busy he is at the Rainbow Bridge, he writes his poem every week and shares it with us AND gives us another photo to use as inspiration for the following week. Thanks Angel Sammy!
Happy Poetry Sharing Day!
My favorite day – not just because I get to communicate through my brother’s blog to stay in touch with him AND with all of you but because I really do have fun writing poems based on photos. If you wrote a poem based on last week’s photo that I gave you – just let us know in our comments so we can visit your blog and read your poem. Alternatively feel free to write your poem in comments and we can read it there. If you’ve not done this before – don’t be afraid – everybody can write poetry and it can be as short as a 3-line haiku or as long as my tail (hahaha).
So here’s the photo I gave you last week to use for this week’s poem AND my poem follows:
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©July 21, 2021
Walking in sand is a challenge for sure
Achy leg muscles you’ll have after your tour
I hope there’s an oasis just over that hill
And be sure your water supply you don’t spill!
If I had to travel the desert my choice would be
A super fast dune buggy to get me from “A” to “B” !
I can’t imagine walking through the desert by choice. Now if you were stranded for some reason – your jeep ran out of gas or your camel went on strike – that’s one thing but walking around in the desert “just because” isn’t my idea of a good time. I thought this photo was interesting and would make for some FUN poems. Hope you wrote one!
Now here’s your challenge photo for next week’s poetry get-together………why not try to write a poem based on what you see or feel when you check out this photo below:
Is this not a gorgeous place? My Mom and Dad saw this place – the Trinity College Library in Ireland – when they were there some years ago on vacation AND saw the stunning Book of Kells – AMAZING to see in person and oh so old (older than my Mom and Dad even………HAHA). Anyway, this photo conjures up all sorts of ideas for me in the poetry department and I hope it works its’ magic on you too. We’ll find out next week!
Meanwhile please stay happy and healthy…………..
Angelic Hugs, Angel Sammy
Oh Angel Sammy I bet if I was walking around in that huge library I could find some mice to chase – what do you think? I suppose they probably don’t allow cats in there though – we might scratch the furniture!! See you next week.
