Time to be thankful – and we do have lots to be thankful for. First up thanks to Brian for giving us a venue for voicing our thankfuls every week. Join us if you like by clicking Brian’s badge above and linking up. It feels GOOD to voice your thankfuls! I’m thankful so far Mom and Dad are healthy. Mom is totally recovered from her hip surgery and my Dad is ornery as ever (oops did I say that out loud???).
I’m also happy that I’m still hearing every single week from Angel Sammy – he sends me an email from his heavenly laptop which contains his poem of the week and a new photo for all of us to use when writing next week’s poem to share. What fun!
Here we are again! Every Thursday – sharing poetry!
As you can imagine, we at the Rainbow Bridge are super busy these days keeping all of our former families as happy as is in our power to do so. We sneak into their dreams, give them little signs we are “around” and watching over them………..it’s what Angels do – human Angels and animal Angels alike!
Did you write a poem to share this week? I gave you a photo LAST Thursday to use as inspiration for today and I hope it worked for you. Some people last week said it was a SCARY photo and others said it was a MOODY photo but everyone seemed UP for the challenge so let’s do this. First I’ll show you the photo we had for our poetry project followed by my poem, then I’ll show you the new photo for next week. Ready?
“Chill In The Air”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©February 17, 2021
A carpet of leaves beneath my feet
My steps align with my heart’s swift beat
There is no sound in the fog so thick
I hold back a vine with my walking stick
Something or someone is up ahead
I approach with caution – and a sense of dread
A rotted tree trunk greets me as I approach
My wayward imagination I reproach!
Just goes to show that things are not always what they seem to be. That shadowy figure wasn’t a figure at all – just an old tree trunk. But it COULD have been almost anything and that’s what’s so wonderful about imagination AND what makes for fun poetry writing.
Here’s your photographic challenge for NEXT Thursday – you have a week to come up with something for this one…………………………
When my Mom saw this photo she said “when I used to go to the beach I would always look for a spot far away from throngs of noisy people – I loved the quiet”……..well I bet there’s no quiet around this place! Imagine deciding to spend the day at the beach and joining THIS throng. Now if meeting people is your thing, then a crowded beach might be a good idea. But I kind of think my Mom has the right idea……….quiet……….peaceful………..somehow that seems a lot more inviting than this crowd. Anyway it’s your inspiration for next week’s poem so have fun with it.
Until then, please stay safe, stay happy and WARM if you’re in a cold climate and COOL if you’re in a warm climate. Here at Rainbow Bridge it’s perfect all the time!
Love, Angel Sammy
I wondered what you’d write for this weeks’ photo Angel Sammy – and I think you did a super job (as always!). I bet everyone else did too and hopefully they’ll leave their links or maybe write their poems in our comments. I will see you next Thursday – thank you for watching out for me, Mom and Dad…………..We miss you every single day.
