Thankful and Poetic Thursday

Standard

 

I Am Thankful………….!

Time to be hopping along with Brian on his Thursday Blog Hop……..thanks again Brian for hosting this chance to share with the universe what we’re all thankful for.   If you want to join us – just click on the badge above……..visit Brian and hook up to the Hop!

Since this is the last “Thankful Thursday” before my birthday on March 4th, I want to say just how THANKFUL I am that I am celebrating my SECOND birthday here in my forever home with my Mom and Dad.   Last year I had only lived here with them for about 3 weeks when I had my FIRST birthday.    Now I’ve lived here a whole year since then and I know just how nice it is to have food, fun, and forever so I can really RELAX on this birthday right?    I’m also thankful Angel Sammy arranged my adoption – because I know in my heart he did JUST THAT!

Second part of our blog today deals with POETIC THURSDAY – Angel Sammy sends me an email transmission to post for him with his poem and a new photo for NEXT week’s poem.   I look forward to that every week – I hope you do too?

Here’s what I got from his cloud last night!

Hello my friends………time to share some poetry!

Thursday is when those of you who are playing along with my challenge to write a poem each week inspired by a photograph that I give to you SHARE those poems either by giving us a link to your poem on your blog OR where you can post your poem in our comments on this blog!    However you want to do it – we want you to give this challenge a whirl.    When you look at a photo, you get an impression of something – a feeling, a memory, an emotion – can be anything that pops into you head upon seeing the photograph.    The fun then is to turn THAT into a poem!    Here is last week’s photo that I gave you to work with, and then my poem from MY impression of the photo:

“Waiting”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell  February 28, 2018

I stood on the bridge watching the setting sun

Feeling relaxed as the day was done

As the sun slowly sank on the earth’s horizon

My cell phone rang courtesy of Verizon

“Yes?” I said irritated at the noisy ring

Until then all I’d heard was birds on the wing

“Time for dinner” my Mom said and I turned to leave

But the sight that awaited me I just could not believe!

As I’d stood on the bridge letting my thoughts take flight

The tide had come in as day turned into night

I was trapped on the bridge for I could not swim

I’d walked out to this bridge on an “unthinking” whim

Thoughts of tides or times or dinner just hadn’t occurred!

If Mom had warned me, I just hadn’t heard!

What to do, what to do, I just couldn’t THINK

One thing for sure, my bridge would not sink!

So I called Mom back and told her the tale….

She reminded me of something which just couldn’t fail

I had been so lost in my thoughts that I forgot one BIG thing

I was an Angel now – and Angels have wings……………………….

 

Tee Hee.   Yes it’s a bit of a silly and fun poem this week – not moody as my poems sometimes are……….but that’s the thing about writing a poem – you can truly write about ANYTHING – you can describe how you feel, what’s in your head, something you can’t “speak out loud but can write about”……….and that’s why I say – GIVE IT A TRY!    I’d love for you to do that.    I also hope you liked my poem this week.     I can’t wait to read yours too!

Here’s my photo challenge for you for NEXT Thursday……………if you didn’t write one for today – see what you can do with this photo and I’ll see you next week OK?   

 

Now this photo is gonna be tons of fun right?   

Oui Oui – me in my French beret which inspires my POETRY!

Love to you all – Angel Sammy

♥♥♥

Thanks Angel Sammy!   I liked your poem and I think that photo for next week ought to get some creative juices flowing with our followers – even those who haven’t written a poem before – maybe they’ll enjoy coming up with something.

Happy Thursday To YOU!   From Teddy

On a sad note……..we had to say goodbye to yet another friend – the beautiful and sweet Kali from CANADIAN CATS blog.   She and her sister Shoko ran the household together along with their Mom and Dad and we know they are missing Kali – so are we – Angel Sammy is making sure she feels “at home” at the Bridge along with all the other Angels.  

You are missed…….Teddy and Mom

Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Standard

Thursday’s here!    Time to be Thankful “out loud” by joining Brian’s Blog Hop.   If you haven’t joined, please do – it’s easy – click the badge above and fill out the LINKY form.   Then you can share with everyone what you are thankful for this week.    For me, I’m especially thankful that it was not TOOOO cold to go outside for a little walk with Mom.   Yesterday it got to 50!    I was one happy cat.   Mom put my harness and leash on and out we went for a whole 20 minutes!     I had a good sniff around, ate some grass and checked on all my favorite spots out there.    I will be happy when it’s Spring and I can explore more of the yard.   I miss it!

I’m also thankful that wi-fi service continues to be excellent from the Rainbow Bridge because Angel Sammy is able to transmit his Thursday Poem to me so I can share it with you.    Remember we’re doing photo poetry now – not alphabet – and the photos have people REALLY coming up with some very cool poems.    You just look at the photo that Angel Sammy gives us each week and write a poem about whatever it makes you see/feel/think about.    Everyone will have a different idea from the photo.    FUN right?

Here’s what Angel Sammy sent me last night………………

It’s Poetic Thursday!

Hello friends!    Time to share our poems for this week.    I hope you liked the photo prompt I gave you last week – you’ve had seven whole days to study the photo and see what it has to say to your heart and soul and what it’s inspiring you to write………..we all get different impressions from photos we see……….what did you see in this one which is the prompt for this week??

Here’s my poem………….I hope you like it!

“Careful Leap of Faith”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell, January 10, 2018

Sometimes new things can be a little scary

Our bodies tell us to “watch out” and be a little wary

That’s a little safety valve that all of us possess

To keep us from going too far out and making a big mess!

To keep us from growing up too fast and taking too many chances

To think before taking a new job, or buying a new car or starting new romances!

A little caution is a very good thing especially when you’re young

Too much bravado isn’t good – some songs should stay unsung!

Baby steps are much more safe and sing a softer tune

Don’t be in such a great big hurry to grow up WAY too soon!

Trust that there are those who care and help you on your way

Just know that something that’s worth doing doesn’t HAVE to be done today.

 

Ta Da!   That’s my thought from that cute picture of the little boy and his Dad or big brother at the seashore………………my Mom says she can remember being little and letting the waves touch her toes and running away – it took her a while to trust that she could go up to her ankles, then her knees, then – well THEN she had swimming lessons.   HAHAHA    Did you write a poem?    I hope you will share it with us – tell us in comments you wrote one and give us your link so we can visit and read it……….OR put your poem in our comments.    But give poetry a try either way – you CAN write a poem – the best thing about poetry is it doesn’t have to rhyme and it gives you a chance to express yourself!   

Now would you like to see the photo I’m giving you for next week?    

I bet you’ll have fun with this one and we’ll find out how you did and how I did NEXT THURSDAY on Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday………so – is it a date?    Good!

I’ll see you then!

I will be here wearing my poetic French beret!! Oui Oui!

Love, Angel Sammy

♥♥♥♥

Oh I think that photo for next week is gonna be a good one!   Who knows – maybe I’ll get brave and write a poem too.

Hugs, Teddy
