Hello Poetry Lovers (or at least LIKERS!). Today we continue on our journey through the entire alphabet and we find ourselves at the charming and lovely letter “S” !
I had so many ideas for this letter, including the obvious – my name – but I settled on one which most of us cats AND dogs truly appreciate – I think you’ll agree when I share my poem with you!

Puddles of sun through windows shine
I search them out and make them mine
On my old bones the sun will heat
The healing feel from nose to feet
The summer sun is far from dainty
It drags us down and makes us fainty!
The winter sun is such a gift
We follow the puddle as the light does shift
We search it out from room to room
When its’ light is gone, here comes the gloom
We miss it on a rainy day
No sun puddles around in which to play
We search the house for a sunpuddle nap
The next best place – my Mom’s warm lap!
Another letter closer to the end of the line…………”Z” isn’t all that far away! Maybe we should start over again when we’ve worked our way through? Or maybe I can come up with another “participation” blog post for Thursdays………….what do you think? This is just a one day poll so take it now because it will be gone tomorrow……..!
I’m up for either option…………but I do love reading YOUR poems and I hope you enjoy reading mine…………let’s see how most of us feel about it!
Before I go, I thought you might enjoy seeing some SUNNY photos from my photo collection………………..who doesn’t love a good sunpuddle???????
Did you write a poem for “S” today? You can post it in my comments if you like, OR you can give us your blog link where we can visit and read your poem!!! Thanks to all of you for pawticipating!
