Thursday and time to spread a little “thankful” around the world. Our buddy Brian hosts this great HOP – one that gives us the opportunity to think about things we are thankful for and say them LOUD and PROUD. Want to join in the Hop? Just click the badge above and link up.
I’ve just GOT to say that I’m thankful that we are getting a few (not a lot yet) really pretty Spring-like days mixes in here and there; enough that I really believe finally that Spring is springing. I will say that my Dad tells me we’ve actually had a snow here in April but we’re thinking POSITIVELY – no snow! Today is sunny and will be in the 60s. That to me is Spring. I’m thankful believe me.
Also happy to say that my Angel brother Sammy sent us his weekly “Thoroughly Poetic Thursday” poem from the Bridge. He’s awfully busy there – between his duties there and keeping an eye on us, it’s amazing he has time for poetry but he does. Here’s the email I got from him last night!
Happy Thursday Friends!
Here we are again – together on a Thursday to read and share poetry. By now you know that every Thursday my little brother Teddy shares an email message I’ve sent to him via my wi-fi connection at the Bridge which will contain a poem I’ve written that’s inspired by the photo I give you each week. I also will give everyone a NEW photo to use for NEXT week’s poem. If you haven’t joined us before, I hope you will think about it. Poems are fun and writing one based on a photo is SO interesting and challenging. Why not give it a try?
Below is the photo I gave you LAST Thursday to use for this week – followed by my poem. Then I’ll give you the photo I found for you to use for next week’s poem. If you’ve written a poem this week, please let everyone know in Teddy’s comments – – – because we all want to read what you wrote!!

“Believe me, she and I are just friends”
“I never start a relationship until the old one ends”
“That call was just an old friend checking in”
“You know me baby, I’d never commit a sin”
“I didn’t stand you up on purpose – it was an emergency”
“My Grandma called because she needed me!”
“I’ll still respect you in the morning I swear”
“I only need a little loan – have you money to spare?”
Oh the things people say to one another to get out of a jam, or to try and get their way, or to mislead and misdirect to cover their tracks. Well, none of US would do that would we. But sometimes you see a couple like the ones in the photo across the room at a restaurant and wonder WHAT has he said, WHAT has he suggested, WHAT did he do that he’s trying to wiggle out of? She’s not impressed – at least not yet!
That was a fun photo with ENDLESS possibilities. Not sure why I went in the direction I did but it was fun. Now, wanna see what I found for us to use for next week’s poem????
Cute? I think so and I believe it will be fun to write a poem to go with this photo………………..I think that pony is jealous (or is he hungry??).
So – give writing a poem for this photo a try………..we’ll compare notes and poems next week. In the meantime, be good to each other!
Love, Angel Sammy
Thanks so much Angel Sammy……….we all look forward to reading your poems every week AND seeing what cool photos you find for the poets among us to use as inspiration! I’ll look forward to next week……..and also seeing you in my DREAMS!
