It’s Double Bubble Blog Post Day!
Thankful Thursday AND Poetic Thursday too…..
Thankful Thursday is hosted by my friend Brian and it’s our chance to let the world know all the things we’re thankful for. I look back at my week and remember all the thankfuls and share them here – you can too if you click on their badge and use the LINKY TOOL to join in the thankfulness.
I’m thankful that my Mom got her little skin surgery taken care of yesterday with no problem – my Mom has more than a “passing” relationship unfortunately with The Evil C……skin cancer is so easy to take care of when caught early and Mom’s an early bird. She will have more surgery next month but for now – all is well. I am taking good care of her post-surgery believe me. I didn’t even make her take me outside for walks when she got home yesterday OR this morning – Dad is on “TEDDY DUTY” !!!
As for my other thankful – it’s the usual – what’s the usual? The usual is that I got an email from Angel Sammy with this week’s poem and NEXT week’s photo inspiration. He just never, EVER lets us down does he?! Below is his email to all of us:
Hello Fellow Poets and Fans of Poetry!
It’s time for our usual Thursday gathering – sharing our poems we wrote this past week of course based on the “photographic inspiration” that I give you on Thursdays for you to think about. I know more than a few of you wondered WHY I was giving you another monkey photo for this week when not that long ago I gave you the “monkey with the camera” photo. Well, monkeys are pretty interesting little characters with such expressive faces – and they give me ideas for fun poetry and I sort of thought they might do that for you too. That’s why this was your inspiration this week:
I think this is a great photo……………these two are totally enjoying that wedge of watermelon. I love the one guy taking a taste and I’m guessing the other one has just taken a chunk out of the top! So many animals enjoy watermelon – bears, elephants, just about EVERYONE loves it. Anyway, here’s my poem based on this photograph AND after my poem I’ll give you a photo for NEXT week. You have a week to come up with a poem of any type to share with all of us. YOU CAN DO IT.

On a hot summer day when your energy is low
I recommend off to your refrigerator you should go
Hopefully inside you’ll find a treasure
Which will benefit you in ways you cannot measure!
A nice cold watermelon hopefully is there
Just slice it with your knife – be sure to take care!
The pink goodness is juicy and sweet as can be
All feelings of discomfort from the heat will flee!
Each bite is delicious and better than the last
It also reminds us of summer days of the past
Playing in the sprinkler and giggling with glee
Mom brings out the watermelon and sets the FUN free!
All manner of humans and animals alike
Agree that watermelon is BEYOND a delight…………….
(put it on your Mom’s grocery list after reading this poem!)
That’s my little ode to watermelon and these two little guys who are happily devouring their summertime treat totally inspired me. Now I’m going to give you what I hope will be an inspiring photograph for all of you for NEXT Thursday. If you wrote a poem for this week like I did above, just tell us in comments that you did and give us your link so we can visit and read it ASAP!
Here’s your inspiration:
Oh boy – this one ought to be fun right? Good luck – remember, if you think you can’t write a poem -you’re WRONG. Just let your imagination take you away – poems don’t even have to rhyme – they are just our thoughts on paper!
Have some fun with poetry…..see you next Thursday! LOVE, Angel Sammy
Thanks Angel Sammy………………I really look forward to hearing from you every week and reading the poem you have written…………..I also love everyone else’s poems. Make sure and let us know if you wrote one so we can read it!!
