Thankful and Poetic Thursday


YAY!  Thursday is here – time to Hop with Brian ‘s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop – this month with Thanksgiving coming is the perfect month for THANKFULNESS!    This week I’m really thankful that we are enjoying a “real” Fall.    What’s “real” ?   We have crisp mornings and days and very cool nights………..and best of all – lots of beautiful leaves.   I’m sure our landscaper doesn’t like all those leaves so much since he’s the one who has to get them all OUT OF HERE (or blown into the woods) since Mom and Dad gave up that chore last year.

I’m also thankful that I received Angel Sammy’s poem in time to post it today.    I always worry that something will interrupt the wi-fi at the Bridge but I should know better – they have SPECIAL CONNECTIONS there so no worry about weather or problems…….they ALWAYS get through!!!

Happy Thursday My Poetic Friends!   

Time for us to share our poetry – you know – the poems we’ve written based on the photo I gave you last week for inspiration………………I bet you have some doozies don’t you – well share share share…….just put in our comments that you did a poem and give us your blog link and we’ll HAPPILY read it.    I thought it was a “cute” photo I found for you so let’s see what you did with it.

Here’s my contribution AND after it, I will give you the photo for NEXT Thursday – just think – you have a whole week to be inspired and write a poem based on the photo.   It’s a lot of fun and if you haven’t done this before – TRY TRY TRY!

“We Promised”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell      ©November 6, 2019

Once upon a time we promised devotion

We declared our love with REAL emotion

The years rolled by and yes we got older

We may not be HOT but neither did we get colder!

Our love is as bright as the moon up above

Getting older is NOT the end of our love

Our bodies have changed and our hair is now gray

But I still feel a thrill when these words you still say

“I promised to love you forever and a day….

and you’re still the one who takes my breath away”…………….


Aging is tough on people and animals.    Our health gets more fragile, our bones break more easily, our bodies wear out but in our hearts and minds, we are forever young.    I remember the day Mom and Dad helped me make my trip to the Bridge – in my head I was a kitten but my body no longer could support the kitten I was in my mind.    Mom says it’s that way for humans too.   The best thing is that one day we will all be back together again…………because WE PROMISED.

Now, who wants to see next week’s photo?    

Isn’t this a GREAT photo?    It looks like this man actually has a smile on his face too.   Interesting choice of SNOW CLOTHES!    Well have some fun with this one – I think you will – I know I sure will!

So we’ll meet again next Thursday and do this again OK?    It’s a date!    Please give writing poetry a try.    There are all kinds of poetry forms – you know poetry doesn’t even have to rhyme – it just is a way to express yourself however you want to and photos give us GREAT inspiration.   We see all kinds of things and feel all kinds of things when we look at a photo!   I bet this guys is feeling COLD!!!   HAHA

See you next Thursday!   Until then – hug someone – just wait until you see them smile when you do………………………it’s magic.

I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!

Hugs from the Bridge, Angel Sammy

I hate to say goodbye but I know I’ll see you again next week Angel Sammy……………………visit me in my dreams please…………………………

Love, Teddy

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday



First up for us today is being THANKFUL with our friend Brian – we all post what we’re thankful for lately and share our posts by joining the Hop -you can do that too if you click Brian’s badge above and fill out the LINKY form.   Why not – I’m sure you have something you can be thankful “out loud” for!

What am I thankful for today?   One thing is that in spite of the ridiculously hot and humid weather, my Mom and Dad continue to indulge me by taking me out on my harness for walks – actually we don’t do a whole lot of walking………I just take them down into the edge of the woods where I get underneath a forsythia shrub and lie down to watch through the foliage as birds and squirrels run by or fly overhead.   It’s like watching TV.   Very entertaining.   Mom and Dad can sit on the swing/bench there and hopefully NOT get bit by mosquitoes (sometimes those sprays just don’t QUITE keep up with the bugs!).    I’m also thankful that Mom got my reservation at Paws A While Pet Hotel CONFIRMED for when they desert me go away for a few days in October.   I love the place – I was there LAST year when they went away and those Sisters sure know how to spoil me!

I’m also thankful of course that we got an email from Angel Sammy which contains his poem for this week AND a photo for next week.    He said in a “P.S.” to me accompanying the poem that he hopes more of you decide to give writing a poem a try.   I hope you take him up on that challenge!!

Here’s his email to us……………..


Hello Poetic Friends!!  

You know that August 28th was Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day and I just want to say one thing………..you all spent the day recalling your pets of the past who were no longer with you and who were residing where I am here at the Bridge…….well, just so you know, up at the Bridge, all of US spent the day remembering all of YOU and wishing we could be with you again.   Love goes both ways you know.   One day we’ll all be together.   Believe it.

Now on to happier things – POETRY!    Did you write one this week to go with the photo I gave you to use as inspiration?    I did!    Here’s the photo you were to use to write your poem and following that is MY poem.   If you wrote one yourself – BRAVO!    Please give us a link to your poem OR write your poem in our comments.   

“The Long Rest”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell     July 29, 2018

When at last our long rest arrives

We don’t want tears in our loved ones eyes

We hope they know we are in a beautiful place

Our youth returned, smiles on our face

Our pain is gone, our infirmities have left

The only difficulty we have is to have you bereft

Don’t be sad because we are physically gone

We’re always there – from dusk to dawn

We’re by your side – we’ll kiss your cheek

We’re on the wind – no need to speak

In dreams at night we’re busy too

You’re NOT alone – we’re there with you

Our time had come when we had to leave

It broke our hearts to see you grieve

Remember one day we will welcome you here

It will be a joyous reunion – so have no fear………………



I hope this won’t make any of you SAD who have recently lost someone in your family be they human or animal because the leaving is painful but where we are, we are happy and waiting for the day we’ll be together again.   The statue in the photo above is so beautiful – and she looks like she’s merely asleep……..resting peacefully.    Someone put flowers in her outstretched hand – but believe me – SOMEONE was there waiting to take hold of her hand and welcome her “home”.

Now how about a photo for next week?    See what you can do with this one for inspiration!!

Can you say HAPPY????   Oh yeah…………………I’ll look forward to meeting you here NEXT WEEK and we’ll share some poetry OK?    Join in the fun – everyone can write a poem – doesn’t even have to rhyme…..it can be in ANY form too.

I hope all of you have a terrific week ahead.    My little brother Teddy talked about his “Thankfuls” for the Blog Hop with Brian and I have a thankful to add of my own.   I’m THANKFUL that all of you are continuing to stop by Teddy’s blog and join in the fun around here…….with Tuesday Teasers, Poetic Thursdays, Bacon on Saturdays – lots of fun to be had around here I’d say.

See you next Thursday everybody…………………….hug someone you love today.   You’ll be happy that you did and so will they!

I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!

Love, Angel Sammy
