Hello Hoppers! Time to hook up with the Thankful Hop at Brian’s and all you need to do is click his badge above and link up – tell us what you’re thankful for! Then after we do that, we can read the poem that Angel Sammy sent via his laptop at the Rainbow Bridge for us to read for his Poetic Thursday post.
What am I thankful for this week? I’m thankful that this Sunday I will be celebrating how much I love my Mom and how much she and Dad have given to me since they adopted me. I am loved…..I am spoiled, I am VERY HAPPY. I am also not living in a shelter any longer like so many who would love to find their forever home. Trust me – I am VERY thankful!
Here’s the email message I got last night from Angel Sammy – I’m also thankful for that!
Hello Poetry Fans and Friends!
It’s me – the Angel Poet – back again with a poem and another challenge for all of you for NEXT Thursday’s Poetic Thursday. Your mission is to write a poem based on the photo I will give you later and to let us know in comments you wrote one so we can go read it on your blog! Now I hope you’ve done that THIS WEEK too – have you? Good – we’d love to read it so let us know.
Here’s the photo I gave you for inspiration LAST Thursday – with my poem – then I’ll give you a photo for next Thursday.
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©May 8, 2019
Leisure ride in a raft anyone?
Lazy river and having fun?
Don’t choose falls rafting if that’s your thing
Frightened rafters screams will make your ears ring!
Stretches of calm water will allow you to rest
Before the next falls where you MUST do your best!
Keeping the raft upright with all hands in the raft
It’s a real challenge so you must learn the craft
If you know what you’re doing and you’re prepared for the thrill
Then climb aboard for the time of your life – is screaming a “skill” ????
Mom says you will never find her aboard a white water raft – not even when she was younger – old truck inner tube floating down the river like I told you last week – that was her thrill in “her day” !! I know that many people enjoy rafting and if the water was nice and calm and you could have a leisurely float with no rough water, then she MIGHT hop on board a raft. MIGHT!
So, here’s what I have for you for next week’s poetry inspiration………………..I think it’s another one with great possibilities don’t you?
This will be a fun one don’t you think? Well, let’s make a date then to get together again next Thursday and we’ll share what we’ve written that’s been conjured up in our creative heads for this photo shall we?
In the meantime, remember LOVE MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND………….it also makes the RAINBOW BRIDGE GO ROUND!
Angel Hugs, Sammy
Thank you Angel Sammy for visiting with us – you may be far away but I feel you near me all the time…………………………..
