Yep – it’s Thursday again and time to be thankful. It’s also the day Angel Sammy visits us with a poem. First let’s be very thankful though for the fact that Hurricane Ian is finally winding down and moving away and leaving us to clean up the mess. We’re thankful the storm wasn’t WORSE than it was but very sad there was loss of life, home, land, EVERYTHING for so many people. Very thankful for all the first responders and emergency personnel, the utility workers, and animal rescue organizations. They are the BACKBONE of disasters.
Thankful as well that we received Angel Sammy’s email with his poem and a photo for us to use for next week’s poetry fun. His email is below.
It’s Time For Poetry Everyone!
Hello and I hope all of you are ready for some poetic fun today. Writing poetry IS fun. Stretching your imagination when viewing a photograph – taking what you see and turning it into feelings, observations, and lots of fun……….at least for me that’s what I’m trying to do when I visit on Thursdays.
Here’s last week’s photo – of a modern dance troupe or interpretive dance group doing their thing. I hope you wrote a poem for this photo – it’s a fun one!
“Well Choreographed Confusion”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©October 5, 2022
Sometimes there’s music, sometimes just a beat
It drives them forward on hard working feet
Emotion in the movement of each one and as a group
The art form is unique in a modern dance troupe
Often balletic, sometimes chaotic, always emotional
The dancers perform their craft with feeling quite devotional
Whether there’s music or just a beat as someone strikes a chord
Experiencing an interpretive modern dance group means you could NEVER be bored…..
My Mom tells me that when she was taking ballet many MANY years ago they could visit different dance troupes – modern dance, ballet, flamenco, you name it – it was most fascinating. I think it’s interesting but as a cat who appreciates peace and quiet I’m afraid I’d stick to watching from behind the stage!
Anyway remember to tell us in comments if you wrote a poem – you can even share your poem by writing it IN my comments……….or give us a link. AND here’s your photo for NEXT week’s poetic challenge!
This poor guy literally has his hands full and not just with boxes but with a customer who is entertaining herself by trying on shoes – probably for fun – and has no intention of buying any. Looks like a fun one for a poem.
Until next week – please take care of yourselves, be kind to everyone, be careful and safe……………………..and WRITE SOME POETRY!
Love, Angel Sammy
Good one Angel Sammy! Thanks for taking care of me and Mom and Dad when the storm blew through here………………..we knew you would!
Big Hugs, Teddy
