Yay! It’s 2-For-1 Day!
First up in our two posts in one day is our friend Brian’s Thankful Thursday……………even though all of us are thankful every day, we set aside Thursday to SHARE what we’re thankful for by hooking up to Brian’s Blog Hop – just click his badge above and you will go there right away then use the LINKY tool to “hook up” !!
I want to say that today I’m particularly THANKFUL for my Mom. Why? Well, this whole week I’m “away” at Cat Scouts (online of course) and we’re at Yosemite at Summer Camp. We’ve had TWO craft projects to complete and Mom of course did them for me since unlike my brother Angel Sammy, I don’t have thumbs! One was making a special hat and the other actually was something for Scout Moms. It’s an infinity scarf but we had to paint it and it’s drying so I can’t show you that but I CAN show you the cool hat she made from the instructions we got – she had to sew it by hand. I think she did a SWELL job and I am so THANKFUL!
YAY MOM! Thanks for helping me at Cat Scouts. We have so much fun – she’s going to try to get a photo of me wearing the cap (hahahahahaha good luck with that!)………Interested in joining Cat Scouts? Just go HERE to register. Tell them Angel Sammy and Teddy sent ya!
Now on to part #2 of the blog today which was sent to me LAST NIGHT in an email from my Angel brother Sammy………………..here’s what he sent!
Hello from the Rainbow Bridge my friends!
Today is my Thoroughly Poetic Thursday poetry day………………my challenge to you is to make it for the THIRD TIME through the alphabet with a poem each week using the NEXT letter of the alphabet. We are up to the letter “I” – can you believe it? We’re working our way through! Anyone can write a poem – so why not you – go ahead – poetry doesn’t even have to RHYME to have a theme and a meaning so if you’d like to join us, please do!
The way we do this is you are free to write a poem about ANYTHING AT ALL that begins with the letter “I” – OR, you could use one or more of the prompt words I give you every Thursday to use for the following week. Last week I gave you four “I” prompts that you could use if you want:
(1) IMAGINE (2) IDIOT (3) IRON (4) ICKY
Those were kind of tough prompts but I just bet you came up with something INTERESTING (say – that word starts with an “I”!) for your poem this week. Here’s MINE:
By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 8/9/17
Imagine a place where peace abounds
Endless flowers adorn beautiful grounds
Endless blue in the sky up above
Never a bad thought, just boundless LOVE
Imagine a cloud so soft and secure
A bed for an angel, with dreams that are pure
Imagine being healthy, and young, and revived
You just left one existence but your “self” survived
Your wings lift you up and you fly with such ease
You may visit your family and friends if you please
We have gone from your touch, but we’re with you still
One day we will see you as you come up the hill
Arrive at the Bridge and we run to your side
The love we have held like a rushing tide
We welcome you home – we’re together at last
A reunion so sweet, like mere seconds have passed……….
Yes I’ve written about the Bridge again………….I suppose it’s just natural for me to do that because after all – I’m HERE! It really is a wonderful place and those of us who are here will be waiting for you – our beloved humans – until you are able to join us. Meanwhile, look for us in your dreams………..or in the clouds on a clear day……….or at the end of the RAINBOW!
Your prompt words next week if you wish to use one will be:
(1) Juicy (2) Jump (3) Jungle (4) Jealous
See you next week!
Love, Angel Sammy
Thank you for your poem this week Angel Sammy. One day – hopefully a long time from now, I will join you at the Bridge – what a TIME we will have!!! Then Mom and Dad will make their way there and we will be together again.
I hope if you have written a poem you will either post your poem in our comments here, OR in comments give us the link to your blog so we can visit you and read your MASTERPIECE!!!!! Make sure and visit us on Poetry Thursday next week……………..we’ll look for you!!
