Thankful and Poetic Thursday

Standard

AHHHHH yes!   Time for Thankful Thursday Blog Hopping with our buddy Brian.    Celebrate the things you’re thankful for on the Hop – wanna join us?   Click his badge above and do it!

I’m thankful that our snow is melting.   I am NOT a happy boy about the snow – I really do NOT like to walk in it no matter if it’s a half inch or even a “dusting”.    Cold feet?  No thanks!    So I’m glad it’s not FEET of snow and that these INCHES of show we did get are slowly melting.    We thought we’d have more snow starting tomorrow but now it looks like mostly some rain so that might just melt more of this snow.   Here are some pix Mom took before we had a full 9-10 inches!

She snapped them before it got very light out the morning of our snow.    It continued snowing all that day and into the evening………….

Anyway, I’m thankful we didn’t get more of that white stuff…………I’m also THANKFUL that because the weather at the Rainbow Bridge is perfect EVERY DAY, Angel Sammy’s email got to me so I have his poem for today I can share with all of you!

Hi Poetry Peeps!

Here I am to share the poem I wrote for this week’s photo challenge poem.    The poem I had in my head all week kind of changed as I was putting pen to paper but basically the idea is the same.    I thought it was a fun photo to write a poem for – did you?    I hope you wrote one!     If you haven’t been doing that every week with us – I hope you change your mind and join in the fun.

I will give you a photo every Thursday and you have a whole week to think about the picture and see what it “says” to you – what feeling does it give you or what do you think of when you look at it?!    Below is my poem for this week AND a new photo for NEXT Thursday.    If you did write a poem, let us know you did in your comments and give us your link so we can read it.    YAY!

“Beauty”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell     January 16, 2019

Bottles, potions, dyes,

Curlers, scissors, razors

Dryers, foil, perms,

Bobby pins and lasers

All to be beautiful….but in case you are a doubter

Real beauty is INNER and certainly not OUTER……

 

Maybe my shortest poem ever?    Well, could be, but funny how it came to me almost the instant I found the photo.   All the trouble people go to getting to the point they feel “put together” and beautiful……….and the most important beauty of all is what you carry in your heart and soul.   Not found in any beauty parlor.  

Now, would you like to see what I found for all of us to work with this coming week?  

Cute?   Well I think so……………….but there’s a lot to see in this photo so have some fun “SEEING” whatever you can and writing about it and we’ll share next week OK???   My Mom wants to give this little critter a hug.   

Have a super week everyone – I hope to see you back here next Thursday WITH a poem……………………….

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

Love always, Angel Sammy

♥♥♥

 

Oh that was a goodie Angel Sammy and I just love that little imaginary creature you found for us to think about this week.    I love his little stuffed wabbit……..he’s just a baby “something” but what?   Part this and that………well, I’m sure your poem will explain!!

Everybody have a great Thursday………………………………

Hugs, Teddy

 

Thankful and Poetic Thursday

Standard

Happy Thursday!    Thankful one too……and we are always thankful just to arrive at another Thursday.   Time moves so quickly – my Mom and Dad said so!!    I’m thankful that SO FAR when they say “snow” it hasn’t – BUT I think that my luck is running out because we could get 6-9 inches of it this weekend.   EEEK.   I’ll try to be thankful for how pretty it is when it falls though.    It’s the least I can do.     If you’d like to share your THANKFULS on Brian’s Hop, just click his badge above and join us!

Now, one more bit of business to conduct THEN I’ll show you the poem Angel Sammy emailed me last night from the Rainbow Bridge.    Yesterday’s TUESDAY TEASER TELL ALL we missed out on a cheer from the School Cheer Team – why?   Because they always have a tough time with a cheer when there are a BUNCH of winners.   We had FOUR FIRST COMMENTERS and – well – they were writing a cheer but fell asleep in their hot tub.   SHAME ON THEM – so we didn’t have their cheer in time for class.    Here’s the cheer they came up with.

This is tough writing about FOUR Firsties!
Good thing we’ve got a refrigerator cuz writing makes us thirsty!
Sharon, Carole, Charles and Jackie
If there’s been any more we would have gone wacky.
Congrats to you guys for being so FAST
You all got in before sixty seconds passed!
Bravo, woo hoo, and a great big yippy
Now pass us a brewski so we can have a big sippy!

Gosh, I’m not sure this particular cheer was WORTH waiting for!

Now onward to the second half of today’s blog which is sharing Angel Sammy’s THOROUGHLY POETIC THURSDAY poetry.

♥♥♥

Happy Poetry Day Everyone!

Did you write one this week?  Oh I hope you did!    It’s a pretty funny photo and hopefully it inspired some of you to write a poem – maybe for the first time or maybe not but at least I hope you had fun with it.    Every Thursday I give you a photo to inspire you to write a poem – – – and at the end of my poem today you’ll get another photo for NEXT Thursday!     If you’ve written a poem this week, let us know in Comments and we’ll come visit you to read it.   

“Poor Pitiful Me”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell     January 9, 2019

I can’t believe this is the only costume they had

I wouldn’t be in this fix if I’d listened to my Dad!

He told me to go pick a costume up way before the party

But as usual I ignored him thinking I was such a smarty.

Now here I sit on the sidewalk while people laugh and stare

I might as well be sitting here in my underwear!

I’m gonna be late for the party now and my girlfriend’s gonna fuss

Because my costume was too big and they couldn’t push me into the bus!!!

 

HAHA…….I know it’s shorter than usual but I couldn’t resist………..it just “came to me”…………….this guy looks just so darn miserable doesn’t he?   Maybe it’s summer and he can’t breath inside that thing so he’s taking a break from some kind of job where he has to wear that “Big Scrat” costume…..WHATEVER is going on it’s not good.   But it did make for a fun photo to use to write a poem about.

So here’s your photo for NEXT week – let’s see what we can all do with this one shall we??

Yep – I think I’ve found another goodie for us to play around with right???   Right!     So, put your best poetry ideas to paper inspired by this photo and share with us next Thursday.   C’mon – you can do it.  If I can, you can.

Meanwhile, hope you all are well and happy.    All is well at the Rainbow Bridge – that should be no surprise to you – things are always perfect here!   

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

Hugs and Love to You All !    Angel Sammy

I like this one Angel Sammy……..that guy in the costume is totally NOT happy but it sure makes for a fun poem.    I’ll look forward to hearing from you  next week my Angel Brother.

Hugs, Teddy

Thankful and Poetic Thursday

Standard

YAY!   Thursday is here and so am I.   I’m going to share my thankfuls on Brian’s HOP then let Angel Sammy do his “poetic Thursday” thing.    I’m EVER SO THANKFUL that my Mom and Dad came home from being gone for four days last week – I wasn’t so sure after they dropped me off at the “spa” but they DID come back and they DID get me so I needn’t have worried.   I’m thankful that the Sisters at the spa love me.   At least I think they do – they visited me and petted me and fed me and stuff – that’s a good sign right?    I’m thankful my Mom and Dad had a good time in Maine too.   They deserve a little break.   If you’d like to tell the universe what you are thankful for on Brian’s Hop – just click the badge above, fill out the LINKY form and you’re IN !!

Now for the second part of my post – Angel Sammy’s poetry day.   You know by now he sends me an email from his cloud at the Rainbow Bridge that contains a little message from him and a poem based on the photo he gives everyone on Thursday every week to use as inspiration for the NEXT week’s poem.   Some of you are playing along with us on this and it justs makes HIM and ME so happy.   You’re all VERY good poets!   Give it a try.   Join in the fun.

Here’s Angel Sammy’s email:

Hello All!   Greetings from the Bridge!

It’s poetry day……………and I can’t wait to read your poem if you wrote one – make sure and tell us in comments that you wrote one and give us your link so we can check it out.   I love Thursdays so I can share my poem with all of you and just let you know that all of your Angels (including me) are always watching out for you even though we are no longer physically with you.   REMEMBER THAT!!

Here’s the photo I gave you last week – one that I hoped would spark your creativity and get you writing a poem for today!

My Mom loved this photo – she TOTALLY remembers these trucks and how exciting it was to see the guy ringing the bell and stopping at every block to let the kids gather round and get ice cream or sometimes just get to ring the bell or try on his hat!    Here’s my poem for this photo:

“The Magic Man”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell     October 24, 2018

The good old days were truly good

At least they were in some neighborhoods!

The Good Humor Guy came around all the time

Amazing how something so good could just cost a dime!

Kids would come running when they heard the bell

No matter what you got, it sure tasted swell!

He would time it just right so most dinners were done

It would be time for dessert with the setting of the sun.

Those days were so magic, and the drivers were magicians –

Ice cream was better “medicine” than what we got from pediatricians!!!

 

Alright – I have to admit, I invaded Mom’s dreams one night to get her feedback on the Good Humor guy she remembered – so this poem is almost more HERS than MINE this week!!

I guess it must have been a lot of fun back in those days.   Mom remembers all of this stuff from back in the 50s forward.    The last time she actually heard an ice cream truck it was an electronic song playing over and over and over and the truck was kind of speeding through the neighborhood like he was on fire or afraid to stop!    Well that kind of ruins the moment doesn’t it!

Here’s the photo that I found for you poets to use as your inspiration for NEXT Thursday when we meet again for Thoroughly Poetic Thursday……………hope you like it!

This ought to be an interesting one to put a poem to don’t you think?    Let’s see what you can do with it and I’ll meet you back here – same time, same place – next week.   Meanwhile, if you haven’t tried writing a poem – give it a whirl.   When you SEE something, things go through your head – feelings, thoughts, ideas – so just put them into WORDS – whether they rhyme or not is irrelevant – just say what you feel.

Right now I’m FEELING like I need to say goodbye.   You know we Angels here at the Bridge are incredibly busy – they keep us hopping here.   But we are never too busy to watch over all of you.  We’re here for you if you just want to talk to us before you go to sleep at night or if you feel lonely – you are never alone!

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

Love to my little brother Teddy, Mom and Dad, and of course ALL OF YOU!   

Angel Sammy

Well that was a totally cool poem Angel Sammy and I’m always happy when Thursday comes around so you will be sharing your poetry with us.   I’ll talk to you in my prayers as always – thanks for being my special Guardian Angel.

Love, Teddy
