Today Is Double Post Day!
First up is THANKFUL THURSDAY
This Blog Hop is hosted by Brian at Brians Home Blog – you can click his badge above to go there and sign up to be PART of Thankful Thursday if you like! It’s our chance to tell what we are thankful for from the past week or whenever! In my case I look back at the previous week and think about what I’ve been thankful for………….this week I was thankful to have my very FIRST “Gotcha Day”. Mom and Dad brought me home to live with them on February 5, 2017 and what a wonderful life I’m leading here. I was 11 months old and homeless at the shelter and now I’m not too far from turning TWO and living the life of “One Spoiled Cat” just like my Angel brother Sammy did! I am truly thankful.
Again my Angel brother Sammy didn’t let us all down – he got his photo poem to me which is what we’ll be reading in PART TWO of today’s double post…………….here’s what he sent to us all!
Hello Friends – it’s me coming to you from the Rainbow Bridge!
I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day……we celebrated at the Bridge too but we were all reminiscing about our BIGGEST LOVE – we all agreed those we left behind when we went to the Bridge are our most SPECIAL VALENTINES.
I hope you are enjoying the photo poetry challenge – those of you who are participating are really doing SO WELL with your poems – I’m pleased you’re having fun – I sure am. This week’s photo is below followed by my poem to go with it – I hope you like it. If you’ve written one, please leave your link in my comments so we can read it !! If you haven’t joined us before – PLEASE DO – we encourage everyone to stretch their wings and write a poem….you CAN do it…..I promise you can.
“Home Sweet Home”
By Angel Sammy Kimmell Feb. 15, 2018
In the vastness of space we can’t be alone
I mean other lifeforms – I’m not talking clones!
Do they have six heads and four legs – or more?
Will they visit us soon or have they been here before?
As we send things in space like satellites and rockets
Does some giant gather them up and stuff them in his pockets?
Are our space probes just trophies for beings in space?
When I look at this photo my imagination does race!
I can watch from my cloud at the Bridge and I wonder
Are other beings sending rain? Are their voices the thunder?
Will they watch us implode or give us a hand………
Show us the way out before humankind’s last stand?
Such heavy thoughts for an Angel in paradise far away
The blue planet is still MY HOME, so I continue to pray
Planet Earth is a beauty – we can see that from afar
We must take good care of home – our Blue Planet Star…………..
Now it’s YOUR turn…………….I hope you’ve written a poem this week. If you didn’t but think you’d like to give writing one a try – how about using this photo I’m about to show you as your inspiration for NEXT Thursday when we gather again for my Poetic Thursday? Just look at this photo below and describe in your poem how it makes you feel, what you see, what you THINK you see, or anything else that pops into your head when you look at it! Is it a deal? Here’s next week’s photo challenge:
Have Fun With This One!
I’ll be back next Thursday to show you my poem – we all have a whole week to study the photo and write a poem………………until then, have a GREAT week!
Love, Angel Sammy
Thanks Angel Sammy – I like your poem…………makes me think. I hope that Earth will be around for a very long time and I think it will if we take good care of it! Sending you hugs from EARTH to the BRIDGE……………..
