Thankful and Poetic Thursday

Standard

Thankful Thursday time……………..Brian, #1 thankful today is thanks to you for hosting this chance for us to all get together and concentrate on what we’re thankful for!    Anyone else wanting to join in just click on Brian’s badge and link up.    It’s something I think we ALL look forward to every week.

Another thing I’m thankful for is that we only for 3 inches of snow this time around.   The “arctic air” and extreme cold is really something but somehow with the sun out, it’s not so bad.   We just feel awful for any creature who does not have shelter when it’s like this.

I got Angel Sammy’s poem last night so I’m happy to share his Thoroughly Poetic Thursday poem with you all!    If you wrote a poem this week, let us know in comments won’t you?   We’ll come visit you and read your poetry.

♥♥♥

Hello Fellow Poets and Poetry Fans!   Time to SHARE!

Hope we have a few more entries to read today in our weekly get-together………if you say that you “can’t” write poetry you’re wrong.    If you can WRITE, you can write a poem.   Trust me.   Just try once and you might like it.     I will give you a photo every Thursday and you have a WHOLE WEEK to think about it and see what you can come up with in the way of a poem – any poetic form – to share the following Thursday.  

Here’s the photo I gave you for THIS week with my poem following.    Gosh this looks amazing doesn’t it????

“WOW!”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell     January 30, 2019

 

This skillfully built masterpiece of calories

I hope the designer has a good salary!

I look at it and think WOW

I wish that I could eat that NOW

Sweets aren’t good for cats to eat

But a little lick of ice cream is a very nice treat

That whipped cream is inviting – I might eat that……

Surely anything in moderation is OK for a cat?

My Mom says even though she’s getting too round

She’d like to tackle this banana split then lose 50 pounds!

 

When we saw this photo we just knew it would be a fun one to write a poem about.    My Mom hasn’t had a banana split in YEARS.   Funny but it’s kind of one of those “old-fashioned” ice cream treats……these days people are more diet conscious and get sugar-free trees or at least something in moderation – – – this photo shows an all out, full speed ahead, ice cream orgy in a dish!!!

Well, I hope you had fun with this – I did.   Now for next week’s photo – you have ALL week to think about what to write………………let this photo inspire you!

When I saw this photo I thought – “NO WAY!!”…………but there are a lot of people who love high diving – cliff diving – dangerous diving and while I wouldn’t do it (even though I’m safe because I’m am Angel!) that doesn’t mean that SOME consider it a legitimate sport.    I just think it will make for a GREAT poem!

So I’ll see you here next week?    I sincerely hope that I do……………….I love this little bit of time with all my friends……………..I miss all of you……………..

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

Love always from the rainbow…………Angel Sammy

♥♥♥

Oh Angel Sammy that photo is just so scary…..even cats who can handle jumping from amazing heights would NOT want to leap off that rock – I won’t even leap off my cat tree from the tippity top.   Anyway, thank you for sharing your poetry with us every week.

STAY WARM EVERYONE………..

Brrrrr…..

We’re staying warm!

This coat helps a lot!

I can handle it!

Can we go inside now Mom??

It’s too cold for us to be outside so stay inside………………..and if you’re able to provide shelter to another animal during this horrible arctic cold, please do.   We have our heated cat house on the front porch!

The heated bed for any visiting kitties on my porch!

Hugs, Teddy

 

 

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Standard

Today is THANKFUL THURSDAY and also Poetic Thursday!

First of all though we do our Thankfuls for Brian’s Blog Hop.    We all have things to be thankful for if we just think about it – even coming up with just ONE thankful a week is something all of us can easily do.    Then we share…………if you want to share, click on Brian’s badge above and hook up with us to HOP.     This week I have to say that I’m thankful I have a WARM HOUSE to live in because it’s really been COLD outside.   I am one cat who loves outside trips but while I’ve asked to go outside plenty of times this week and Mom has put my harness on and her coat on, etc., the minute the door opens I look at her like “YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME…….CAN YOU TURN ON THE HEAT??”…………so I don’t go outside.    Mom seems OK with that but I miss my fresh air.   Still, I am thankful I have a choice – so many kitties and other animals are only out in the bad awful weather.   I don’t HAVE to be!

I’m also thankful that I got Angel Sammy’s poem for this week because I’ve heard there are a lot of problems with people’s internet service – apparently the folks at the Rainbow Bridge NEVER have problems because I always get his email containing his poem on time with no glitches!   Wi-Fi up there is GREAT!

Here’s what he sent to me…………………………………

♥♥♥♥

Hello Friends!  It’s time for my Poetry Challenge of the week!!

This week we are REALLY getting close to the end of the alphabet because it’s time for the letter “W”.    That means just three more after this and we’ll start a NEW poetry challenge.  I’ll tell you more about that as the time gets closer.   I hope you like my idea!    

I also hope you’ve had a good week…………..things have been busy at the Rainbow Bridge – as you know I’m on the welcoming committee and sadly we’ve had a lot of additions lately – the cold weather seems to be our busy season there.    We always work hard to make new arrivals feel at home – after all, this IS our home now.    We visit with our families and friends on Earth if we choose to but we LIVE here.    Other than that, I teach classes on Angel Good Works, Flying With Wings, and several other things.  I am busy!    

As I said, this week’s letter was “W” and I gave you some ideas of what you might write your poem about in case you couldn’t come up with something – BUT remember the poem can be about ANYTHING starting with the letter “W”…………..my “prompts” for you were:

(1) Window (2) Wink (3) Worry (4) Wiggle

What did I write my poem about?   I used one of my prompts!!

“Wink”

By Sammy Kimmell, November 16, 2017

They say that cats can let humans know

How they feel about them, it’s our way to show

Our love for you – our true devotion

Cats are capable of deep emotion!

You may already know this but if you stop to think

Your cat may frequently stare and WINK

We catch your eye from across the way

And time stands still…….it’s THEN that we say –

“I LOVE YOU” with a slow, deliberate wink

Holding your gaze, and you stop and think

“Is he doing that on purpose or is it a clue?”

Well of course it’s on purpose – we are saying “I LOVE YOU” !

My Mom realized about winking long long ago

Other kitties she had would WINK at her to show

Their love for her………and she always winked back – 

It’s something MANY of us do – and that’s a fact!

Keep an eye on your kitty from across the room

If you see a slow wink – it’s the sure cure for GLOOM!

 

It’s true……………My Mom’s cat before me Eddie would wink but when Mom winked back Eddie would hop down from wherever he was at the time and come to her – he’d follow his “I LOVE YOU” with a “LET’S CUDDLE”………I didn’t do that but I loved to catch Mom’s eye and wink.   I know she’s hoping Teddy will do that…………..I’ve told him to give it a try!

Next week we will have the letter “X” – now that’s a REAL toughie……………..so instead of you having to do an “X” poem, you may do a poem about ANYTHING IN THE WORLD YOU WANT TO!    If you can think of an “X” – you can do that but you don’t HAVE to.    OK?   OK!      I am not going to give you prompts – you can be extra creative!

If you wrote a poem THIS week, please let us know you did in my comments here and we will come visit you to read it – OR you can post your poem here in my comments if you like……let’s share!

I’ll look forward to seeing your poem next week – please give writing a poem a try – everyone can write a poem – trust me I know.    Poems take so many forms and don’t even have to rhyme – just let your imagination take flight and WRITE!    

SEE YOU NEXT THURSDAY………………………..remember, I love you all!

Ah…..me in my French beret – I feel like a famous poet !!

Love, Angel Sammy

♥♥♥♥

Oh thank you Angel Sammy………….I love your poem this week but then I always love your poems………….and you!    I hope to see everyone tomorrow on FRIENDLY FRIDAY FILL-INS……in the meantime, Happy Thursday!

Hugs, Teddy
