It’s time for Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and I’m ready with my SAME OLD list of thankfuls! If you want to join in – click the badge above and link up. I say “SAME OLD” because for weeks and months I’ve just been thankful that so far – we are doing fine in my house – no virus – no real change in our lives. Mom and Dad never really did a whole lot of eating out or visiting with friends so that hasn’t been a problem. I’m just enjoying getting ALL their attention – YESSS!!! BIG SCORE FOR TED!!!!!
I’m also thankful to have received my weekly email with poem from my Angel brother – Sammy. It’s below!
Hello Poetic Friends! Good to see you!
It’s Thursday and time for us to share some poetry. The fun part is matching our poems to a photograph – makes it fun to have a “subject” in mind before we even TRY to write isn’t it! I used to find photos that “went” with my poetry but this is the other way around – I give you a photo and you write a poem ABOUT what you see in the photo – more fun and more challenging.
Here’s the photo from LAST week that we were to write a poem about – – – and my poem follows:
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©September 16, 2020
On the side of the house where the nasturtiums grow
Emma and Buster put on quite a show
A private affair it was for just these two
An “experimental” kiss – out of the blue!
Emma from next door had come over to play
Buster was copycatting what he’d seen earlier that day!
He saw Dad kiss Mom as he walked out the screen door
Buster had seen them kiss of course but wondered “what for” ?
So when Emma arrived for their usual fun
Buster gave her a big kiss and she didn’t run !
They remained best friends forever and a day
As for love – well – they really didn’t feel that way
But from that day forward if they needed a friend
They were there for each other until the very end.
I think I mentioned last week when I gave you this photo that it was a very old photo from 1898. I just thought it was adorable when I saw it. I once asked my Mom if she remembered her first kiss and she said “yes indeed – it’s the kind of thing you never forget”………..but strangely enough she’s not sure WHO it was that kissed her – just remembers the KISS!
So I looked for a good photo for our get together next week and found this one………hope you have fun with it and I hope you had fun with our little kissing couple – let us know if you wrote a poem in our comments and we’ll stop by to read it!
By the way, September 19th is “MEOW LIKE A PIRATE” day in the cat blogosphere……cats dress up like pirates and talk funny (ARRRGH…..AVAST ME HEARTIES, etc.) so that’s why I picked this photo. This guy looks scary enough for proper pirating!
Oh I bet we get some “wicked good” poems next week! Meanwhile, I hope you have a “wicked good” week and that you are all staying safe and healthy…………………………….See you next Thursday!
Love and Light……………Angel Sammy
Oh boy oh boy Angel Sammy – pirate day is one of my favorites. This is me in my pirate costume – what do you think?????
I love and miss you Angel Sammy! Hugs, Terrible Ted the Pirate!
