Happy Thursday! Today is TWO FOR ONE day here on my blog. We always join Brian’s THANKFUL THURSDAY Hop – you can too if you click the badge above! Then we also have Angel Sammy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday as Part TWO of today’s post.
First comes being thankful though. Today I’m focusing on thanking YOU – that’s right – YOU. All of you who are faithful followers of my blog – who write to tell me that you love Teaser Tuesday and all the craziness of Ding Dong School……the ones who say writing poetry on Thursdays was something they never, ever thought of doing before but now they look forward to it. Why am I thankful? Because I enjoy having my blog and if you didn’t like what I do, I wouldn’t do it! So I’m thankful for YOU. I’m also always thankful that Brian has this HOP every week so we can all share.
Angel Sammy’s weekly email with his poem and photo for next week came in RIGHT ON TIME so below, you’ll find the message I received which really is for ALL of us not just ME!
Greetings Poetic Friends!!
Time for us to gather together and have some fun with poetry. You all know every week I give you a NEW photo to ponder and agonize (!) over as inspiration for a poem that you will write and share on Thursdays when I share MY poem written with that photo in mind. Photos can be very inspiring and it’s so much fun to just let your imagination go crazy and write what you see or feel when you look at a photo. If you wrote a poem be sure and tell us you did in our comments here so we can VISIT YOU!!
Here’s the photo I gave you last week, followed by my poem based on the photo:
By Angel Sammy Kimmell November 7, 2018
So many things change for us over time
More rain has been falling and temperatures climb
Hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes and fires
It seems we’ve awakened Mother Nature’s ire !
Floods bring loss of life, homes, jobs, and land
Beaches erode with storms stealing the sand
The seasons used to be defined, predictable and true
But lately it’s changed – I feel it – don’t you?
Is it too late to reverse it or is this just “one of those years”
When things are unpredictable and we needn’t have fear.
The signs are all there and we shouldn’t ignore
Mother Earth is pleading with us on every continent and shore.
STOP and think where we’re going…..before it’s too late
We can’t ruin this earth………and just leave it to fate.
Well I can almost hear you saying “Angel Sammy this is another rather dire poem!!” – when I usually like to write something upbeat and fun but honestly, I have to say that those of us at the Rainbow Bridge have been looking on and wishing we could do more to “hold Earth together” in just about every way including weather! But of course we can’t. Humankind has to help. So that’s what I thought when I saw this particular photo…………………WHAT DO YOU SEE? WHAT DO YOU FEEL?
Here’s the inspirational photo for NEXT week’s Thursday Poetry Challenge – I kind of think this will be a bit more FUN and less SERIOUS than this week don’t you???
There you have it – inspiration for poetry for NEXT week! Until then I hope you will have a super week………………….Thanksgiving is coming soon……….then – CHRISTMAS! Wow…..time flies. I became an Angel in December 2016. Could it have been that long ago? Seems like yesterday…………Mom says that too………….. ♥
See you next week my friends………..
I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!
Love forever, Angel Sammy
Thanks Angel Sammy and thanks to all of you who took time to write a poem and join in the Poetic Fun every Thursday! See you next week right here to SHARE some poetry!
Where did all these leaves come from????
