Two For One Day!
First up is Thankful Thursday Hop with Brian – one we look forward to every week because we can publically share what we’re thankful for this week. I am VERY thankful that my Mom and Dad are so understanding of my need to go for walks outside. I know they wondered if I would be like Sammy and easily trained on leash and harness and WOO HOO for me – I was most happy about it. If it meant I could go outside and sniff and walk and dig in the dirt and eat grass then I was UP for it. Every day I get at least three walks – Mom or Dad or sometimes both of them. Lucky? Oh yes indeed I am!
There are so many things I’m thankful for though – this is just ONE of the things I love the most.
The next part of today’s blog is my Angel brother Sammy’s FAVORITE thing – the Thoroughly Poetic Thursday challenge…………………..and he works very hard at the Rainbow Bridge all week then takes a break on Thursday to write a poem and email it to me via his Bridge Wi-Fi connection. Here’s what I got from him LAST night to celebrate this week’s letter – the letter “G” !!
Hello poetry lovers! Your old friend Angel Sammy coming to you from the Bridge and this week we are writing poems about ANYTHING starting with the letter “G”! I also gave you four prompt words for you to choose from if you couldn’t think of your OWN “G” word – the prompts were:
(1) Garden (2) Giggle (3) Groceries (4) Grandma
I had a lot of trouble deciding which of these to write about but I wound up picking my favorite because it was “Mom” time for me when she worked in her Garden!
“G” is for Garden
by Angel Sammy Kimmell, 7/26/17
Gardens are places where hopes can grow
You plant some seeds and watch the show!
Young seedlings pop up from the soil
Then comes the hard work but it’s worth the toil!
Veggies and flowers my Mom had gardens galore
She loved them all but the deer loved them more!
The critters would munch and get their fill
Mom’s All You Can Eat Buffet served food and they got no bill!
Time went on and she decided to change
No longer in the yard – she changed her range
She gardened on the porch and on the back deck
Plants she could raise and the animals were in check!
The woods around the house provided plenty for them to eat
The birdfeeders sunflower seeds were STILL their treat.
Our gardens are smaller but at least they survive
I always helped Mom take care of them as long as I was alive.
So did you write a poem today to celebrate “G” ??? If you did, put your blog link in my blog comments here and we’ll follow the link to read your WORK OF ART! Or if you’d rather, you can put your poem in my comments – we can read the whole thing right there! It’s FUN to write poetry – it doesn’t have to be in any particular format – it doesn’t even have to rhyme. Just put your feelings and thoughts on paper and SHARE!
Next week we’re moving on to the letter “H” and I’m going to give you the prompt words but remember you can write about ANYTHING starting with “H” – the prompts are just for fun and in case you can’t come up with something on your own!! Ready?
(1) Happy (2) Hobby (3) Heart (4) Home
I’ll be here next Thursday to see how you do AND to share my poem with all of you………………until then, this is your friend Angel Sammy heading back to do my work here at the Rainbow Bridge. Remember, I’m always watching out for ALL of you………………
Love, Angel Sammy
Thanks Bro! Thursdays just wouldn’t be the same without a poem from you. We hope our friends write something to share too. Speaking of sharing, Mom has some new photos of me beating up my poor old red tent. It’s definitely on its’ last legs but I love it like it was brand spanking new. I’m kind of tough on my toys……the old white mouse that belonged to Sammy’s has been reduced to a pile of rags (Dad’s old handkerchiefs) holding it together. It looks just like a big pile of rags and I carry it EVERYWHERE – I even take it to the room where my Mom or sometimes my Dad happen to be and leave it so it can guard them and keep them safe!
This was Sammy’s old mousie – just a white mouse that he used to keep up on my Dad’s dining room chair…..until I found it of course!
This my dear friends is what’s left of Sammy’s white mouse – held together with “bandages” !!! BUT I LOVE IT STILL!!
I’ll be back tomorrow with Friendly Fill-Ins Blog Hop…….see you then!
