Happy Thursday everyone……………Brian is the host of THANKFUL THURSDAY and if you’d like to share what you’re thankful for this week, just click the badge and link up with him like we have.
Thursday is also Poetic Thursday with my Angel brother Sammy. He gives us all a photo and we use it to inspire a poem which we have a week to write and share with each other on Thursday.
First though is THANKFULS – I’m thankful that my Mom and Dad have put up with my lack of cooperation getting my ear medication for a couple of weeks – my vet wants to see me tomorrow for a re-check. Let’s hope I don’t have to continue with the ear stuff because I am not a happy boy when I get those drops. I’m also THANKFUL that Mom and Dad got my nails trimmed without me hardly noticing – we were all out on the picnic table (I love to lie on top of it) and Mom whipped out my nail scissors and had me trimmed before I had time to SCREAM!
As for the poetry side of Thursday…………….here’s the email I got from Angel Sammy with his poem AND a new photo for NEXT week’s poem day.
Greetings from the Rainbow Bridge!
Hello friends – ready for some poetry exchange? I hope you wrote one to share. Remember to give us your link in our comments so we can read what you wrote. If you didn’t write one – WHY NOT? Just kidding but like I’ve said many times before, anyone can write a poem. Poetry often doesn’t even RHYME – it tells a story in many different kinds of forms. I thought it might be fun for me to give you a photo one week – then give you a week to write a poem inspired from that photo – then share it the following Thursday so HERE WE ARE!
Here’s last week’s photo and MY poem to go with that photo:
“Sweet Treat for the Sweet”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©August 25, 2021
Mama Mia would you just look at this array!
So many choices I don’t know what to say!
Flavors in abundance from A to Z
Just reading the list of flavors sets my imagination free!
Even only a little taste of each one would be fun
Imagine standing at the counter and trying to pick ONE
While the line behind you grows longer as you pick and choose
Then finally you hold your cherished cone – and drop it on your shoes!
HAHA………sorry about that………I simply could NOT resist that ending. My Mom says she remembers in the very old days when the ice cream man would come down their street sometimes she’d get an ice cream cone and while running back home with her treat dropping it and crying her heart out that her Mom wouldn’t let her eat it off the sidewalk. Poor Mom.
SO – I have a photograph for all of you who will have a whole week to come up with the poem to go with this photo – are you up for the challenge? Oh come on – give it a try.
Uhoh….windy days and kilts are not a good combination!
This ought to be a fun one for a poem………………………I hope you will share your poem with us for this photo NEXT Thursday right here. I’ll share mine too. Meanwhile, have a happy and healthy week………….
Heavenly Hugs, Angel Sammy
Oh Angel Sammy that ice cream looks SOOOOOOOOOOO good. Mom let me have a taste of ice cream once and it was TOO COLD. Not much you can do about that right? HAHA I’ll see you next week but feel free to visit me in my dreams whenever you can.
WAITING FOR YOUR VISIT! Love, Teddy
