Happy Thursday! Today’s my double purpose blog post………….first half I’m being THANKFUL for something and sharing it in the Blog Hop hosted by Brian and second half is Angel Sammy’s Poetry Challenge. First up though is being THANKFUL. Brian hosts this Thursday Hop and you can join in if you click his badge above and add your link! What am I thankful for today? I’m VERY thankful that I have been allowed to be an indoor AND outdoor kitty thanks to my “Kitty Holster” harness. It keeps me calm and when I’m wearing it, I don’t RUN RUN RUN like I do if Mom decides to “unharness” me. I have learned to be the perfect front porch guard which is what Sammy used to do. I’m thankful he taught me that by whispering in my ear from the Rainbow Bridge. He’s my Guardian Angel you know!
Now for the second part of my Thursday blog post, I will “cut and paste” Angel Sammy’s email transmission to me last night………………he has great wifi at the Bridge and sends us his Poem and message every single Thursday. Ready? Let’s see what kind of poem he did this week.
Hello Poetry Friends (and non-poetry friends too!)
Thursday means poetry. I gave you all a photo last week and your mission was to spend a week thinking about the photo and what it made you think of or feel and then writing a poem about the photo! It’s fun. You should TRY it if you haven’t joined us yet! Then you can post it on your blog and tell us you did a poem giving us the link to it in our comments here so we can read it – OR you can write your poem in my comments!! Easy Peasy right? The photo I gave you last week to think about is below along with MY poem………
“Creatures From the Black Lagoon”
By Angel Sammy Kimmell May 10, 2018
Eons and ages and centuries ago
When the earth was a much more primitive place
There were creatures of mammoth size you know….
With “not necessarily friendly” face!
They’d lumber around shaking the trees and ground
Their size was absolutely monumental!
Some roared with ferocity but some made tiny sounds
Like their voices were almost experimental!
They dominated the world until humans appeared
And they were stalked and hunted for their meat
The humans had weapons so they had to be feared
Conquering their size was quite a feat.
Eventually the dinosaurs disappeared
The world began to change
Other animals more tame and less feared
Began to roam the range
Humans made friends with smaller species of cat
Not as fierce as the tiger called sabertooth
Domestic and spoiled and THAT was THAT
And this story of mine is THE TRUTH!!
Ha ha……bet you didn’t see THAT coming right? Well it was a fun poem to do……….and I hope you enjoyed looking at those dinosaurs and coming to some sort of brilliant idea about what to write – come on – share! If I can do it so can you! If you didn’t write one for THIS photo – maybe this photo which is NEXT week’s challenge photo will appeal to you. Give poetry a try.
I love this photo………..I hope it will inspire you in some way to write a poem about it for NEXT Thursday! Until then, remember that I love all of you and miss all of you – and if you look up at the ceiling right before you fall asleep you just might see the flicker of Angel wings – it may be your own Angel or who knows – it might be ME stopping by to say goodnight.
Oui Oui – me in my French beret which inspires my POETRY!
Hugs, Angel Sammy
Thank you Angel Sammy…………….I liked your poem this week………and I just want to say that even though I never KNEW you, I feel like I did and I MISS YOU. I’ll look forward to reading your poem for next week.
Hugs to Everyone,
