Hello Friends! Today is our double day – starting with being THANKFUL then moving into POETRY. Of course this time of year most of us tend to focus on the many things we are thankful for (or SHOULD be thankful for!)………….I’m thankful that we didn’t get as much snow as originally predicted for our area – the BIG SNOW remained South but that meant that a lot of people who don’t normally see a lot of white stuff, DID. NC and Southern Virginia were hammered as you know! The photos we saw were amazing. We had just under two inches and it’s pretty well gone now. Thankful? OH YES WE ARE!
I’m also very thankful that that wifi connection Angel Sammy has never lets us down. I got his poem last night along with his message……….I’ll share it with you!
GREETINGS FROM THE BRIDGE!!
Hi everybody. It’s that time of the week again – time for us to stretch our wings (which Angels do literally!), and share some poetry. Each Thursday I give you a photo to use as inspiration for the following week. You all are FANTASTIC because those of you who have been participating are doing a wonderful job of being creative. I hope more and more of you decide to give writing a poem a try and sharing your work with us via our comments with a link to where we can read YOUR poem! After I share last week’s photo (below) and my poem inspired by that photo, I will give you a NEW photo for you to think about and study and ultimately write a poem about (I hope).
Ready? Set? GO!
“Twas The Night Before Christmas…..”
Poem By Angel Sammy Kimmell December 12, 2018
The malls are alive with the sound of crowds
Everyone laughing and talking real loud
Lines are long and patience is short
Especially this is true in the Mall food court!
Stores are restocking to keep up with the buyers
Little kids forced to come shopping turn into cryers!
Gift wrappers have lines and learn to be FAST
Those bows and all that tape just better last!
Wall to wall people as far as you can see
Sales people anxious for closing time so they can be FREE
In spite of the craziness and the panic and such
Nobody seems to mind or care all that much
Because the holidays are here and the smiles are for real
Santa Claus is coming soon and that’s a BIG DEAL!!
HAHAHA…….I had some fun with this. I hope you enjoyed tackling this photo too. I had several write to me to say they thought it was a perfect photo for close to Christmas. This probably is what 90% of the Malls look like RIGHT NOW but certainly on those last two or three nights before Christmas! Are you ready for NEXT week’s photo? Even CLOSER to Christmas………
I love the photo for next week…………….just love it.
I’ll show you a photo of my Mom as a little girl visiting Santa……….don’t tell her I showed it to you though!
My Dad teases Mom about this one – the number on the side of Santa’s chair – he wonders if that’s his prison number or something. HAHAHAHA This was actually taken when my Mom saw Santa in Weisbaden, Germany when they lived there a million years ago. I personally think this Santa looks a little scary. Mom doesn’t seem to think so though – she looks totally fascinated.
Anyway, your photo for next week is NOT the one with Mom but the cute one above it with the little girl in her tartan outfit!! I’ll look forward to writing my own poem about the photo AND to reading all of yours!
I hope all of you are being EXTRA good right now – you know Santa keeps a very close eye on all of us at Christmas time and really all year through. I hope you are on his NICE list!
See you next Thursday…….meanwhile I’m sending you a holiday hug…..
Thanks Angel Sammy……………I’m anxious to read everyone’s poems too. I’m also anxious to hear from you again next week. I always AM…………………..
