Ahhhh…..another Thankful Thursday is here. Thanks Brian for hosting this Hop – we are enjoying keeping up in these crazy times with our friends and hearing what they are thankful for. If you’d like to join in please do – click his badge and link up with us. We continue to be very thankful that we’re healthy and we hope and pray all of you are too. We’re also thankful that we are getting a break from the heat – we have rain in our forecast for almost the whole NEXT WEEK! Not a LOT of rain but rain nonetheless. Enough to keep the green stuff out in the yard GREEN anyway.
We’re also thankful Angel Sammy – who we miss more than ever – got his Poetic Thursday email through the gathering clouds in time to be part of our post today. Ready to see what he had to say?
Good Morning Poetic Friends!
Time for us to share poetry. If you don’t know by now, every Thursday I transmit to my brother from the Rainbow Bridge, a message AND a poem I’ve written inspired by a photo that I thought might be fun for ALL of us to write poetry about. You have a whole week to write a poem and share it here. It’s fun – give it a try!
Here’s the photo I gave you last week, followed by my poem……………..I found this magical photo a FUN one to use as inspiration for my poem and I hope you did too.
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©June 17, 2020
Down life’s path we wander along
Hearts full of sadness or full of song
Decisions we make as our journey unfolds
Bring joy or pain or surprises untold
You reach a crossroad and wonder which way to go
Take the easy road that’s light or the darker way that’s slow
Challenges make us stronger and our spirits hunger for change
Do we grab the first chance that comes along or go for the long range?
When all is said and done and our lives are at their close
Will we look back at our life’s journey at the pathways that we chose?
Oh I suspect we will all do a little soul searching when our time comes…………or maybe even along the way of our lives. The photo we gave you this week has a million different scenarios that come to mind when you examine it closely. I hope you took some time to write a poem about what you SAW in this photo. It’s a DEEP photo in many ways. There are so many messages in it that it’s almost mind boggling. The more you look – the more you see. That’s JUST the way life is – the more you look the more you see and the wider your life experience will be!
That’s enough philosophy for the day………how about taking a look at next week’s photo? This photo was sent in by a wonderful friend and she’d seen it online and thought “that’s a GREAT photo for a poem” – I think she is absolutely right. Have fun with this one…………..
Isn’t this beautiful? What do you see?
Now I want to ask you for a favor…………please follow the guidelines that you on Earth have been given to avoid getting the virus – it’s important – your family needs you, your WORLD needs you and it’s a small price to pay to continue your life isn’t it? Don’t be impatient – things will change – they already ARE changing. All of us Angels at the Rainbow Bridge are hoping you will not be in a big hurry to leave your life there. We’ll be waiting for you so be joyful, love life, and most of all BE CAREFUL!
Love and Light………..Angel Sammy
Gosh Angel Sammy – thanks for the poem AND the advice! We hope our humans will pay attention…………..we need them to be HERE with us !! I miss you!
