Thursday! Time for all of us who participate in Brian’s Blog Hop to share what we are thankful for this week. If you want to play along, click the badge above and link up with us won’t you? I am super thankful that we actually got a couple of raindrops this week – two days we had lots of noisy thunder and some decent rain but each of the two events lasted about 15 minutes. Not enough to break the drought OR do much for all the outside stuff like grass, trees, and shrubs! Oh well………it’s summer. Guess we should be happy we got ANY “wet” at all. I’m also very thankful that my Mom and Dad are still healthy – I am keeping a CLOSE EYE on them believe me!
I also got to be thankful that Angel Sammy’s email with his poem for this week arrived. Let’s see what he’s got to say shall we?
Time for Thursday Poetry!!
Hello friends…………….hope you are all hanging in there and making sure you are taking care of yourselves as best you can. Staying safe – using your masks – socially distancing AND washing your hands or paws!! If you’re doing that then GOOD ON YOU!
Last week’s poems for the little baby eating watermelon were so adorable…………but I have a feeling the poems for THIS week are going to be really fun too. So let’s get this party started shall we? Here’s your photo that I gave you last week to use for today’s poem:
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©July 29, 2020
Wouldn’t you know this would happen Tom?
On our way to the Senior prom?
All dressed up and we get a flat tire
We’ll probably get there just under the wire!
Now don’t get grease on your new dress pants
You’ll smear it all over ME when we’re having a dance!
Don’t worry though – it’s really not that tragic
Our Senior Prom night will still be MAGIC!
Nice that she didn’t heap too much angst on poor Tom – after all it wasn’t HIS fault they had a flat! Talk about bad timing though. Anyway, these two will have a wonderful evening – one of those that every human remembers always – and the flat tire will make for a really FUNNY story they can tell their kids and grandkids many years from now (assuming they survive the Prom and decide to “get hitched”!!)
Now here’s the photo I found for all of us to use to write a poem for NEXT Thursday……………..I hope you’ll participate with me – Poetic Thursday is just a pile of fun!
Mom has a friend who will love this photo I know – she’s a horse aficionado and this is a very beautiful photo indeed. But what kind of a mood will you use for your poem for this photo everyone? It’s rather dreamy but is she out to give her dogs exercise or is she part of a hunting party or is she meeting someone special in a clearing in the woods?????
It’s up to you to figure that part out. I’ll have my poem ready for you next Thursday and I hope you have fun with this one………………..
Take care everyone – keep safe and well. It’s a MUST!
I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!
Love always, Angel Teddy
Love the poem Angel Sammy and thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule every week to play poetry with me and our followers. We have a lot of super duper poets who tune in on Thursdays don’t we?!
