Happy Thursday and you know what THAT means…………….we pause on Thursdays to join Brian’s Hop to express our THANKS for our many blessings. Continued health is a biggie for us in my house. My Mom and Dad keep up with their 6 month checkups and all the other maintenance type stuff humans have to do AND they take good care of yours truly in that department too (although I am due for a shot – yuck). Also thankful that while we’ve had some bigger snows than we’ve had in a couple of years, we’re keeping up with things and between Dad’s snow-thrower and the sunshine melting we are keeping our heads above the snow!!!
I got an email from Angel Sammy with his poem this morning……………….I’ll share it with you for his Poetic Thursday:
Thursday Is Here!
Time to share some poetry! I hope you wrote a poem for the photo I gave you of the cute couple dancing in their kitchen…………I wrote mine and you can see it below. If you wrote one to share with us, please give us your link to the poem OR write your poem in our comments. We love to read your work! It’s so much fun writing a poem inspired by a photo.
Here’s the photo we needed to use for today’s poem:
“That Same Feeling”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©January 10, 2022
When they were young they loved to dance
At church, at the bingo parlor, any possible chance
In each others’ embrace they gracefully moved
They were perfectly in tune as their smooth moves proved
The years passed so quickly but their love never faltered
The linoleum may have aged but their young hearts never altered
They danced for themselves – never caring for crowds
And they knew in their hearts one day they’d dance in the clouds…………….
Forever kinds of love. Most people would like to have that – some do and many don’t……..but the couple in this photo brought a tear to my Mom’s eye when she saw this picture. It made her happy and sad. I hope you saw something inspiring in the photo – let me know if you did by sharing your poetry!!!!
Next week’s photo is this one…………hope you like it too.
The next Beatles?? This will be a fun one for poetry. I hope you’ll be with us next Thursday to share a poem about this gang! Until then, stay happy, healthy, and in love with life.
Love Forever And A Day………Angel Sammy
Love the poem today my Angel brother………………..and next week’s will be a ton of fun I think……..I hope lots of people give writing a poem a try!
“HALP! MAKE IT STOP MOM!!”
