Thursday means THANKFULS……..and after we are thankful we move on to part two which is POETRY with Angel Sammy. As far as “thankfuls” go we have lots of things to be thankful for. Two days of gorgeous weather (ending tonight with storms) has been wonderful. A reminder of just how gorgeous Virginia is in the Spring if it TRIES hard enough! We will have a day in the 90s before the week is out though. All of us are healthy – another HUGE blessing. We continue to be thankful that Brian hosts this chance for all of us to mention what we are thankful for. Then of course we are blessed with hearing from Angel Sammy every single Thursday with his poem challenge. Here’s his note that he sent from the Rainbow Bridge last night.

Welcome to Poetry Day!
Hi everyone. Time to share some poetry. Did you write one this week? I gave you a very hairy photograph (haha) last week to use for today’s poem. Should be interesting to reach everybody’s poetry today. I try to find photos for you that might CHALLENGE you a bit. This one sure challenged me!
Here’s the photo I gave you last Thursday to write a poem for sharing today.
EEEEEK. Now that’s a whole lot of hair. Imagine washing/drying/keeping it out of your dinner plate???? HAHA Seriously – if you are curious about this long hair period in history, check out this website – super interesting. CLICK HERE
Here’s my poem for this photo………………
“Time For A Trim?”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©May 18, 2022
In Victorian times hair was really quite “IN”
Didn’t even matter if it was thick or thin!
Didn’t matter if it was curly or straight
Didn’t matter if it was HALF a woman’s weight!
The long the better and that’s no lie
Imagine all the time it took for a wash and dry!
Alright – I know I got a little silly with this one but it was fun. The website we gave you has lots of photos of women with “never ever cut” hair…………and it’s just interesting that it was a fashion trend. As they mention, because times were hard for many people women would often cut their hair and sell it so not EVERYONE had floor-length or longer hair!
Now for next week I have a great photo for us to work with. At least I think it is! AND if you wrote a poem this week for our “long hair” photo, please tell us in comments and give us your link so we can read your work…………OK? OK!
Isn’t this a hoot? So cute. I feel a fun poem coming for this one!
So let’s get together next Thursday and share poems again shall we? You have a whole week to work on a poem. Until then, stay happy and healthy and don’t think for one second that you can’t write a poem because YOU CAN!
Love Always, Angel Sammy
