Thankful and Poetic Thursday


Thursday means HOPPING with Brian and everyone else who wants to share their “thankfuls” for the week.   If you’d like to HOP too – just click Brian’s badge to visit his blog and link up.    It’s good to voice your thankfuls so you can focus on the positive stuff!

I’m thankful this week that the dangerous storms that so many other people have had this past week – including here in Virginia and in Maryland nearby – have MISSED us.    They are all around us but MISS US – and isn’t that a blessing?    Lots of huge old trees down with the winds and some flooding – but NOT HERE.    I am very thankful and so are my Mom and Dad.

Also thankful Angel Sammy came through with a poem for us this week – did you write one?   If you didn’t you can start this week and share next week with the photo he’ll give us today for inspiration.   Give it a whirl!


Hello Friends and Poets!    

Another Thursday is here and time for us to share poems.   Every week I give you a photographic inspiration to write a poem to share – did you do one this week?   I did………let’s share shall we? 

After I show you my poem I’ll give you ANOTHER photo which you may  use for inspiration to write a poem for NEXT Thursday’s little get-together.   Remember it can be short/long and in any poetic form.   Doesn’t even have to rhyme – just needs to be based on the photos.   FUN???  oh yea!

Here’s the photo from last week and my poem to go with it:

The Fairy Messengers

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell      ©August 21, 2019

The messenger fairies arrive to bring the Princess the word

Only she understands – no one else has heard

Her beloved sends his regards and invitation so sweet

For her to steal away at dusk so that they might meet

The fairies receive her response then fly back to the tower

Where the man awaits anxiously for the appointed hour

The lovers meet as planned in the garden of green

As fairies and butterflies make sure they’re not seen…………….

When I saw this painting I thought it was quite magical – and so many things came to mind as to what to write – I tucked all those thoughts away and decided to write a poem at the last minute instead of thinking about it all week.    I hope you got the same sense of magic when you saw the picture and I’m anxious to see what you wrote!   Please tell us in comments if you wrote a poem – give us a link to your poem OR if you prefer, just write your poem out in a comment!    Either way, let’s SHARE!

Here’s your photo to use for NEXT Thursday’s poetic get-together…………………..let it inspire you – take you somewhere special in your imagination and allow you to create a poem to go with the photo.

Have fun with this one……………….I  love it.   I’ll look forward to seeing what you THINK of it with your words.

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

Until next week – be kind and caring – you will get it back!    Love, Angel Sammy



Thank you Angel Sammy……sending hugs……

Love, Teddy


Thankful and Poetic Thursday


Happy Thursday!   Time to tell what we are thankful for since our last Thankful Thursday!     My biggest thankful really is that our very long wet run of weather gave us a break yesterday.    We had sun almost all day long and it was just so glorious.   Mom was finally able to mow the yard and I was finally able to “nest” in the back yard leaves without getting soaked.    It was heavenly.   Speaking of heavenly, I heard from Angel Sammy last night – he got through on his wi-fi connection and emailed me his poem and message for today!    YAY!!!!


Hello Poetry Fans!

Here we go again – another Thursday and time for us to share the poems we wrote this past week using the photo I gave you as “inspiration” !    I also have picked out another photo which I’ll give you later for you to use for NEXT Thursday’s poetic get-together.  

If you wrote a poem this week please let us know in comments here so we can visit you to read it.   I’m so happy some of you are joining in the fun and writing a poem.   Thankfully for all of us there are a LOT of poetic formats – some short like haiku and some long like mini-short stories – and even many forms that don’t rhyme…….so you can have FUN writing something using a photograph and your imagination.

Here’s last week’s photo followed by my poem for the week:

Howdy Partner!

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell        @May 15, 2019


A long hard day riding the range

Cattle moving slow in the mid-day sun

Hard life yes but you wouldn’t change

For you this life is perfect and fun

Time to relax and put up those boots

While ranch hands in the distance holler and hoot

Let them work while you take a break

Giving back to the land more than you take

A life on a ranch is in your blood

You’ll stand your ground in pestilence or flood

The family heritage is entrenched in this land

And you’ll love it until the day you die and take God’s hand.


I know my Mom talks about childhood memories and of course in her day every little boy watched cowboy movies, wore a cowboy hat and wanted to ride the range when they grew up.   Well Mom tells me that these days it’s harder and harder to hang onto the land and work it – especially farmers and ranchers.    It’s not an easy life but many of these ranches and farms have been in families for generations – you don’t just walk away from that I guess!

Here’s your photo inspiration for NEXT Thursday……………………..

Now let’s see what we all can do with this photo – I think it will make for some FUN poetry don’t you?     I hope you’ve all had a great week and that the one coming up will be too.    I’ll look forward to seeing you next Thursday.   

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

Love forever and ever, Angel Sammy



There you have it!   Another poetry Thursday and as usual, Angel Sammy has given all of you a fun photo for NEXT week just as he did with the one for today.    I hope you’ll give writing a poem a try if you haven’t done it before.   It’s easier than you think and it’s very cool to look at it and think “HEY – I WROTE THAT!!”.

Hugs, Teddy
