Here we go again on a THANKFUL THURSDAY sharing all the things we are thankful for this past week…………..if you’d like to join in this Hop – click Brian’s badge above and LINK UP to share. Thanks so much Brian for hosting this wonderful chance for all of us to focus on the positive and the many things we have to be THANKFUL for in our lives.
It’s also Poetic Thursday which is Angel Sammy’s day to share a poem with us AND to give us a poetic challenge for next week in the form of a photo to inspire our poems!
I continue to be very thankful that Sawyer who was missing for almost a month is home again. In fact there’s a party for him today at the Tabby Cat Club (calling all tabbies – if you’re not a member of the TCC – why not???).
I’m also thankful that today is a less humid day than the past few – we can all breathe better today – it may be HOT but it’s not humid. YAY!!!!!
Let’s see what Angel Sammy wrote in his email to me last night shall we???
Hi Poetic Friends!
It’s Thursday and you know what that means…………..time to share your poems. You know – the ones that you wrote during this past week that were inspired by the photo I gave you when we last met (last Thursday). We use photos to give us ideas for the subject of our poems then share them RIGHT HERE every Thursday. If you wrote a poem for the photo last week – let us know in comments. We want to read it!
Here’s the photo I gave you to inspire TODAY’s poems from you and me…………..after the photo is MY contribution to Poetry Day today!
“So Many Books….So Little Time”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©July 28, 2021
Just imagine how many ideas are in these pages
Wisdom and entertainment passed down through the ages
Endless knowledge and inspiration is yours for the reading
The excitement of learning sets all hearts beating
Libraries are storehouses of every kind of book
You can use your imagination as you wander and look
So much to see in the shelves full of treasures
The enjoyment of reading brings infinite pleasure.
My Mom says she remembers as a little girl her favorite day of the week was when her Mom would take her and her brother to the library. They could sit in the childrens room and look through all kinds of books while their Mom could peruse the shelves without having a kid tugging on her skirt to ask when they were leaving – because Mom and her brother LOVED being there. They would stay all day if they’d been able to. Mom’s love of books and reading took her to places she never dreamed – like writing her own mystery novel and childrens books later in her life. Libraries are full of infinite possibilities for humans (and come to think of it, we cats have fun in old libraries keeping the mouse population down!!).
SO – ready for your photo for NEXT week’s poetic inspiration????? Here it is and you have a whole week to write a poem based on your thoughts about this photo:
Looks like an accident waiting to happen. HAHAHA Seriously – this one will be fun don’t you think? We’ll find out what you think and what you say NEXT week when we meet right here to TALK POETRY. Meanwhile, take care of yourselves…………remember you have Angels at the Rainbow Bridge watching out for you!
Loved the poem Angel Sammy – Mom still has tons of books in her own library so I guess “once a book lover, always a book lover” !! See you next week!
