Happy Thankful Thursday! Our host, Brian says PLEASE JOIN THE FUN – just click the badge above and tell us what you are thankful for this week. We all have a lot to be thankful for – as well as HOPEFUL about. I’m still super thankful that so far we are still healthy in my house and neighborhood. We are doing the things we’re told to do to stay safe. That’s the key to this virus thing – doing what we KNOW is the way to stay safe. Not being too quick to jump the gun and get back to the way things were………..!
I’m also thankful as always that Angel Sammy sent me his poem for this week……………AND another photo for next week that is totally interesting and from one of our blog friends!
Hello from the Rainbow Bridge!
It’s that time again – time for us to share a poem based on a photo. Isn’t this fun? Seems we all have our own idea about what the photo “says” to us and that’s what makes it so interesting every week to see what you’ve written. The other great thing about poetry is that there are a million different forms of poetry – haiku is “short and sweet” – then there’s the kind of poetry that doesn’t rhyme ………….. so when you think you can’t write poetry – trust me – YOU CAN!
Here’s the photo I gave you all last week to use as inspiration for your poem for today………………..followed by MY poem. By the way – I absolutely love this photo – it is of course digital art but some of you wrote after I showed it last week to say it reminded you of “The Owl and the Pussycat” and IT DOES!!!!! Let’s see what we can do with this magical photo.
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©June 3, 2020
Adrift in a sea of bright stars we glide
Moon shining brightly as we enjoy our ride
Sailing on the tide as it carries us along
Listening to the melody of a nightbird’s song
Lying on a blanket looking up at the sky
A shooting star for company as it flies right by
Can this moment be real or is it a dream?
Is this time and place as perfect as it seems?
Magic can be found wherever love’s eyes look……
In a painting, in a garden, or pages of a book
Imagination allows us freedom to travel so far……
And have beautiful adventures no matter where we are.
I have this feeling I will see this artwork in my mind’s eye for a long time – that’s how it impacted me (and Mom) when we found it. The world would be a sad and lonely place without a little magic………….. Share your magic with us by telling us in comments if you wrote a poem – we want to read it so let us know what link to follow to see it!
Now, a bit of information about the photo I have for you for NEXT week’s poem………………my super good friend Little Binky and her Granny at AngelsWhisper2011 sent this photo to my Earth Brother Teddy thinking it might make for a FUN photo for poetic purposes. I totally agree – I think it’s interesting even if it might have been a “blooper” kind of photo. I see some interesting things in it and I bet you will too! THANK YOU LITTLE BINKY AND GRANNY FOR SENDING IT TO US!!! Please visit them (blue link above) and say hello.
WHOOPS! Looks like the top flew off that building!
Anyway, I think this will be fun to write a poem for…………………hope you enjoy using it as well. By the way it’s a photo Binky’s Granny took in Monschau, Germany.
Now as usual I will ask that all of you out there please take care of yourselves – stay healthy – do all the things you’re SUPPOSED to do whether it’s “convenient” or not. Safety and health is FIRST in these times on Earth. We at the Rainbow Bridge are looking and watching and hoping that all things – and we mean all – will return to CALM and PEACE. That’s the way the world should be.
Love always, Angel Sammy
Thank you Angel Sammy – Mom, Dad and I feel good that you are watching over us………………….we love and miss you.
