Double Duty Day! Thankful Thursday with Brian
and MY Poetic Day!
First is Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop…………….well I truly am THANKFUL for all the love you have shown my Mom and Dad while they have struggled to come to grips with me heading off to the Rainbow Bridge last Friday. Your love helps them and has been the wind beneath their sails. Thank you my friends.
Next up is my Thoroughly Poetic Thursday post which this week gets us to the END of the alphabet by writing a poem about something starting with the letter “Z”!
I knew the day would come when I’d have to face the letter “Z” for a poem…………….not that it’s all THAT hard, but it’s a challenge – certainly more of a challenge than many of the other letters of the alphabet right? Well, anyway, here goes!

In most zoos it’s sad to see
Animals in cages NOT running free
There are many though who have seen the light
Have widened spaces and lines of sight
Have given animals some dignity
With landscapes having more reality
So animals can roam
Feel more at home
And allow more individuality.
Zoos also keep some endangered species going
Safely protecting animals instead of just showing.
One thing for sure of which I am glad
I’m totally free and not caged and sad.
Well, there it is………….done! We made it through the WHOLE alphabet but now we’re going to start all over – remember I asked you to vote on whether you wanted to start over with A and do this one more time or not??? The votes were cast and you wanted to “play this again Sam” (haha) so next week we’ll begin again with the letter “A”! Meanwhile, if you wrote a “Z” poem today, you can either post it in my comments so we can read it OR put your blog link in comments so we can visit your blog and read your poem! It’s fun isn’t it? I think so…………………
Oui, Oui! I wrote a poem starting with “Z” !
