Thoroughly Poetic Thursday


Welcome to Poetry Day


Hello Poetry Fans and welcome to our little weekly exercise of our poetic brains where we write a poem beginning with a letter of the alphabet……as we work our way through the alphabet we find that we have made our way to the letter:



By Sammy Kimmell, 9/8/16

She’s been my Mom for 16 years

Through giggles, fun, and sometimes tears.

She’s taught me things I needed to know

She’s fed me well so I would grow –

From tiny feral baby to senior old man

I thought I couldn’t, she showed me I can.

Every day has been like a gift

Sleepy sunpuddles in which I drift.

The day will come when I will leave

But in my heart I truly believe

She will join me and the others who came before

On the beach of love at Rainbow’s shore……….

Now, before I leave you, I invite you to put your OWN poem for “M” in my comments to share with everyone OR, put a link to your blog where you might post your poem and join me in celebrating the fun “art” of poetry!!!!  

Oh yes -before I go – HAPPY ANNIVERSARY

TO MY MOM AND DAD today – 26 years!


Weren’t they cute?   HAHAHAHA

Love, Sammy the Poet!

  2. Happy Anniversary to your wonderful parents! I love their wedding photo. Your poem is so sweet, I got a Mom poem from Phoebe, but not quite the same ( I think she has been talking with SuzieQ). 🙂
