Happy Thursday. I wish I could say today that I’m THANKFUL that my good friend Sawyer from The Cat On My Head has returned home after running away a few days ago but I can’t. He’s still missing. It’s very sad and scary for his Mom and Dad and all of us who love him because he has a seizure disorder and needs medication. His family are doing EVERYTHING to try and find him and get the word out. Please take a second to say a quick prayer for him to return. I thank you for that!
I am thankful that we have some rain in our forecast after several days of incredibly ICKY heat. It’s even too hot for ME and you know how much I love being outside!!! Mom and Dad come out with me when I want to go and it’s been pretty miserable for them – – – they can’t crawl under a shrub for a shade nap like I can. HAHAHA
I got Angel Sammy’s poem for this week though – I’m thankful for that – and I’m happy to share it with all of you poets out there!
Hello Poetic Friends !
Here we are again on a Thursday sharing the poems we wrote this past week based on the photo I gave you last Thursday for inspiration – FUN FUN FUN! I know all of us have been quite distracted (yes even the Angels at the Bridge) with worrying about Sawyer and hoping he’d come back to his family in Roanoke, VA but you know as much as we would like to “make it happen” even Angels can’t do that. We WOULD if we COULD.
Anyway, I wrote a poem which I’m going to share with you……………and then give you another photo to use as inspiration for NEXT week’s poetry day!
“What’ll It Be?”
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©June 30, 2021
There’s NO doubt about it
We’re not afraid to shout it
Whatever is your favorite drink
It’s here on our shelves – don’t you think?
I can tell you this for sure
It takes HOURS to give a tour !
I bet it does – I’ve never EVER seen anything like this and Mom and Dad who visited many a pub in their travels through Europe don’t remember a pub like this one! We tried to find the name of this one but only discovered that the image we had taken from the internet is a copy of an available print from “Johnny Griffin”. There are a number of pubs claiming to be “THE OLDEST PUB” though and whether or not this is the oldest it’s certainly got quite an array of “overstuffed shelves” ! If you wrote a poem for this image, please tell us in comments so we can read it!
Now how about a photo for next week? One of my Mom and Dad’s favorite places in the entire world. I think there’s some good poetry that could be written for this photo!
Yep – this one is perfect……….My Mom and Dad think they may have eaten dinner on that left bank in the photo in fact……………..during that dinner Mom asked my Dad if they could have a night time gondola ride – after all – it was their honeymoon. This isn’t THEIR photo but they did take a night gondola ride and YES their gondolier sang beautiful songs to them. Memorable – oh yeah. Have fun with this one!
That’s it for me this week…………………..please continue to pray that missing kitty “Sawyer” from The Cat On My Head returns home………..he’s missed, loved and very much worried about.
Love and Light, Angel Sammy
As always Angel Sammy – a very cool poem for last week’s photo. I am so happy that you still visit us with your poetry – please never stop!
