Happy Thankful Thursday! As you all know by now, I always start off my post on Thursday with something I’m thankful for then go on to share Angel Sammy’s THOROUGHLY POETIC THURSDAY post with you. First let me say if you’d like to join in Brian’s THANKFUL THURSDAY Blog Hop – please do – click his badge above, fill out the LINKY tool and share your thankfuls with all of us. Thanks Brian for hosting!
My biggest thankful is actually a big thankful from ME and my MOM. Both of us are thankful that her annual oncology visit was good – her blood work was perfect and she is “good to go” for another year. This is a huge thankful. My Mom has had multiple battles with cancer and after a year spent on a treatment regimen back in 2006 she has been cancer-free. She will ALWAYS have annual checkups by her oncologist but hopefully never get cancer back. This is a HUGE HUGE Thankful from both of us.
Now shall we move on to PART TWO of today’s blog post? Angel Sammy’s THOROUGHLY POETIC THURSDAY – and here’s the email post I got from him last night with his instruction to share it with all of you – his friends!
Happy Poetic Thursday Friends!
Hope you’ve had a good week since I last visited and gave you another photo to use as a “springboard” to a poem to share this week with all of us. I am hoping that some of our friends who haven’t ever written a poem before give it a try this week. Those of you who DO participate, thanks for having fun with me.
If you have written a poem, please put your blog link in my comments here so everyone will know to visit your blog to read your work OR put your poem IN our comments – either way – share your poetry because lots of us LOVE poems – especially original ones!
Here’s the photo I gave you last week to use as inspiration for writing a poem – followed by MY poem to share with you.
By Angel Sammy Kimmell April 19,2018
Watching eagles soar and glide in the air
Seemingly at peace without a care
Riding the currents and watching below
I wonder if they know that THEY are “the show”!
I used to think it would be an amazing thing
To no longer be grounded and take flight with some wings
To join birds in flight like airplanes in the sky
Not earthbound but FREE – “I can fly!” “I can fly!”
When I became an Angel and wings I did grow
It took me a while to learn the air’s flow
There were crash landings and tears until I got really good
I could fly where I wanted around my “neighborhood”
But I’ll tell you a secret and I promise it’s true
I’d turn in my wings in a minute if I could come back to YOU!
Well, I think probably my poem isn’t DIRECTLY related to that photo but it’s about flying and those people popping out of that plane and hoping that their parachutes open when they should INSPIRED my poem anyway. I know I can count on my wings FOR SURE………but taking a leap of faith like them? No thanks! Even though my Dad flies a plane I know he would only fly IN one and not OUTSIDE of one!!!
Now, how about next week. Want to see the photo I’ve picked out for all of us to write a poem about?
Fun? I think it will be………………let those imaginations take flight! I’ll look forward to your poems next week………………until then know that I miss you and you will always be my friends.
Love, Angel Sammy
Isn’t that a cool poem Angel Sammy wrote? I think it would be so much fun to fly…………..but given a choice of having wings and being an Angel OR staying right here with my Mom and NOT flying, I think I’d choose being right here, right now.
