THANKFUL THURSDAY and HAPPY BIRTHDAY and "I Tried To Write A Poem"


It's BRIAN'S THANKFUL THURSDAY and I just wanted to say
that I am thankful for a special friend who came into my life one day.

When I truly needed a friend, on a day just a few years past,
there she was and beside me ever since with a friendship I know will last.

It's also time for SAMMY'S POETRY CORNER, and today is the Letter B.
That works well, cause my special friend, has a Birthday today, you see!

So I started to make her a picture, and to go with it, a little poem ...
but my hands and mind kept wandering 
through memories of birthdays, Christmases and home.

My thoughts meandered through so much of the past, the yesterdays no longer here.
Perhaps it's common to pause, reflect, remember during this time of year ...

So, there is no poem, and the picture you see,
is crazy, mixed up and means something only (to her?) to me.

Happy Birthday Friend ~ With Love, With Thanks

  21. I love the photo. And while you might not think it makes for good poetry, I love the idea of a mind wandering through happy Christmases of the past. Sounds like a wonderful way to spend a few moments.
