WOO HOO! Thursday again and time to share our thankfuls with each other courtesy of our host Brian. If you would like to join the Hop – click the badge above and link up with us. I am totally thankful for all the kind people who have written to my Mom to wish her luck with her surgery tomorrow – she’s getting a brand new hip! It’s just so nice that people take time to write and send her encouragement. She’s had surgeries before but not a joint replacement. At least she only has to be in the hospital overnight. I will miss her (so will Dad). I’m also thankful that so far so good with our health here at my house. These days that’s definitely something to be thankful for.
I have Angel Sammy’s poem to share with you – I received it last night via RAINBOW BRIDGE EMAIL SERVICE!!
Hello Poetic Friends!
Thursdays seem to come around faster and faster don’t they. It’s fine with me since I love sharing poetry with all of you but time FLIES these days. I’ll encourage all of you to give writing a poem a try – we have several followers who do write a poem and share it but if you’re hesitating for some reason to try and write a poem – don’t! YOU CAN DO IT! There are so many forms of poetry too….doesn’t even have to rhyme or be a long poem. It’s just fun to be creative.
Here’s the photo I gave you last week to use for writing this week’s poem to share………………………….followed by my poem:
“Wear Your Coat”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©January 13, 2021
We watched the house next door being built much to our surprise
We thought it was a hallucination or a problem with our eyes!
We wondered what would happen on the first day of summer
We thought watching your home melt would certainly be a bummer!
HA! I actually wrote a VERY VERY long poem then whacked about 3/4 of it out when I realized it was becoming rather silly. I mean it’s tempting to say two Eskimos were moving in – or people who owned trained seals – or something like that so I just left it SHORT and SWEET! I’m sure you wrote something better……….and if you did – please share it with us! Just tell us in comments and we’ll read it!
Here’s your photo for NEXT Thursday. Now I have to say that I am hopeful that my Mom will be back at the computer by next Thursday – I think she will. I guess if we have a blog post up for Thursday then you’ll know for sure right?
Your job is to use this photo as a stepping stone to your poem…….what do you see/feel/think about when you see this photo…………..put it into words and voila – you have a poem! We’ll share next Thursday OK?
Meanwhile please stay safe and healthy…………………………your Rainbow Bridge Angels are watching……………
Love Always, Angel Sammy
Thanks Angel Sammy……………..I love Thursdays with you!
