Thoroughly Poetic Thursday


Let’s Do it! (write a poem that is)


Ah yes……..the wheels of time are moving quickly now as we sneak up on the end of the alphabet – hence the end of our exercise in writing a poem for each letter!   But let’s not dwell on the END of something – let’s enjoy the moment and SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZE out a poem to honor the letter of the week – the lovely letter “R” !   


By Sammy Kimmell, 10/13/2016


Rainy days are messy

I have to stay inside

Rainy days have thunder

That noise can make you hide!

There is one thing that’s NICE though

About a rainy day

When rain stops and the sun pops out

Something SPECIAL comes our way!

Mother Nature’s paint palette

With all the colors bright

A ribbon of color across the sky

Brings smiles of pure delight.

The rainbow is so beautiful

Stretching from ridge to ridge

A reminder too that our friends are smiling

From across the Rainbow Bridge……..

Now, next week we tackle the letter “S”………………gosh………….I know someone whose first name starts with an S……….hmm……..!!!!   Meanwhile, if you have written a poem today for “R”, put your link in my comments here so we can visit you and read it OR just write your poem in comments here and we can read it HERE……….stretch that imagination and write one!

Happy Poetry Day

Surprise someone with a little poem today!

Oui Mon Amis, I did zee "R" today and next week we shall do zee "S" together, oui???

Oui Mon Amis, I did zee “R” today and next week we shall do zee “S” together, oui???

    • AND I love your poem today!!!!!! BRAVO!!!! I also like your Mom’s book pumpkins…..very cool. Once we go through the whole alphabet maybe we’ll do it again…… can’t have “too much” poetry right?!

      Love, Sammy


    • I absolutely ADORE your poem today about Rescue…..for many reasons – the storm made me think about all the animals who needed help, people who needed rescuing, and the whole world of taking care of the animals of the world who need forever homes. My Mom and Dad saw a double rainbow only once – – – on one of their cruises; Mom thinks the Rhine River Cruise…..they were on board the ship and looked out and there it was……everyone who was in the lounge did the “OHHHHHHH…….AHHHHHHH” thing. Dad caught a photo of it but we couldn’t find it when we looked. Thanks again for doing poetry with me every week!

      Love, Sammy


  1. You write lovely poetry, Sammy. We get a lot of rainbows here, but that is probably because we get lots of rain. I hope your new food and medication is helping your poop problems improve.


    • I hope it will too Flynn……….I go to the doctor again when I’m finished with this stuff in 4 more days and we’ll see how things stand. Sending you a hug or two or three!!!!!

      Love, Sammy

    • Oh poor boy, this really (!) sums up how poorly you and your Ladymum have been treated by so many vets in your town. EVERYBODY matters…every single living thing. I am hopeful that your Ladymum will find someone who knows that each of us is different and deserves respect and proper care. Even feral kitties like me (yes I was a feral) should have a GOOD and healthy life. I love your poem – you did so well with expressing the disappointment and frustration that you both feel! Hang in there little man.

      Love, Uncle Sammy

        • I know that the poem came from your heart……and I hope that your Mom printed it out and will keep it with other mementos of her little man in a special little box – some day – many years from now – that will be a wonderful thing to read again.

          Love and Hugs, Uncle Sammy

  4. I really like your poem Sammy

    The radish is not faddish
    Some may even want to banish
    The cattish radish
    It has sharp taste
    And Hagfish like Grace
    So keep the Radish not banish
    Sammy it is late as I write this so please furgive me


    • I like your RADISH poem…..when I was an itty bitty kitty, Mom accidentally dropped a radish on the kitchen floor and I immediately stole it and would NOT give it back. Eventually it kind of dried up and I lost interest in it so Mom could throw it away. HAHAHAHAHA THanks for pawticiapting in the alphabet fun – you did GREAT!

      Love, Sammy


  5. Sammy, that was such a sweet poem. We’ll be sad when you get to the end of the alphabet. Hmmm, “S”, I wonder what the poem will be about next week.


    • I’m thinking of starting the alphabet ALLLLLLL over again when we get to the end. But I might change it up a little – still go through the alphabet but for instance say “A” has to be a poem about any animal that starts with letter A………..or something like that! Whatcha think? Good idea?

      Hugs, Sammy
