Happy Thursday everyone – time for us to talk about things we are thankful for with our host for this Hop – Brian. If you’d like to hook up to his Hop – click the badge above and link up with us.
I must say I’m super thankful for the absolutely beautiful Fall weather we’ve having. I have had so much fun playing in the leaves and lying in the leaves hiding – Mom and Dad say I’m acting like a kitten (a big kitten). We had temps in the 30s last week and this week in the 60s. We know it won’t last but we’re sure enjoying it while we can. I always say that I’m thankful that all of us in my house are healthy and we are.
Today is Veterans Day and Mom, Dad and I are all thankful for all those who have served their country including my Grandpa – my Mom’s Dad, Ferol William Johnson.
I’m also thankful that Angel Sammy sent us his Poetry for this week – I’m sharing it below! Remember, anyone can join in the poetic fun. He gives us a photo and we write a poem about it AND we have a whole week to write it! Here’s this week’s email from him at the Rainbow Bridge.
So – we meet again!
Nice to share a little of time with you every week. Remember, everyone is welcome to join in the fun. Just write a poem that is inspired by the photo I give you every week. Then the following Thursday tell us you wrote a poem – give us your link and we will visit you to read your poem!!
Here’s the photo that I gave you last week to use for today’s poetry get-together – I get COLD just looking at it………..I thought it might inspire some interesting poetry and my poem is below the photo.
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©November 10, 2021
Our cabin in the mountains is a quiet retreat
A respite from busy life and noisy streets
We have fires in the fireplace and keep quite cozy
Skiing and hiking in the snow keeps our cheeks quite rosy!
When it snows a lot the trees are heavy with snow
If the wind shakes the trees LOOK OUT BELOW!
It was the first thing I thought of when I saw this photo…………those trees DWARF that little cabin and hold a lot of snow. While this scene is rather idyllic I would NOT want to be trapped in that tiny little cabin with FEET and FEET of snow that had fallen from those huge trees blocking my way! I’m guessing this might be a photo shopped picture anyway. But it sure makes you think about how you’d handle having every door and window blocked with FEET of snow…….EEEK!
So remember to tell us if you wrote a poem in our comments – we would love to read it.
Here’s your photo for NEXT Thursday’s poem. You have a week to work on it – then post it next Thursday on your blog and tell us you wrote one so we can read it.
Love this…………….I think maybe I’ve given you a similar photo before but this is too cute to pass up!!! I’m sure you can come up with something in a poem for this.
HAVE FUN coming up with a poem and I’ll see you next Thursday………..it’s a date!
Heavenly Hugs, Angel Sammy
So wonderful to hear from you Angel Sammy……..please don’t EVER stop visiting us!
