Time for Poetry (and to be thankful too!)
Yes it’s my Poetry Day but it’s also my friend Brian’s Thankful Thursday so we’re hooked up with them too for that blog hop.
Now, let’s be POETIC!
Today we celebrate the letter “D”!
Remember, if you have written a poem today for “D”, make sure you put your blog link in my comments for others to visit you to read your poem OR you can put your actual POEM in my comments if you like! As for ME – here’s my contribution to honoring the letter “D” in our alphabet!
“D” is for Dad
by Angel Sammy Kimmell, 2/4/2017
One day 17 years ago
A very long time ago, you know!
My Mom and Dad decided to look for another cat
They knew the Shelter was “where it’s at” !!
Into the “kitty room” they went
Mom says she thinks they were “heaven sent”……
Only one little kitty was there – ME!
In a tiny cage but happy as could be.
The lady took me out of the cage which was way up high….
First thing I saw up close was my Dad’s blue eyes!
He was so BIG and I was so SMALL….
I wondered if one day I would get that tall!
She handed me to Dad and he held me nice and firm
I felt so secure, I didn’t even squirm!
I nuzzled his neck and gave him a lick….
He smiled real big – I had succeeded with my “trick” !
He handed me to Mom and I snuggled with her too
But I already KNEW, I didn’t need a clue…..
I had my new home – all because of my Dad
I was the first little kitten he’d ever had……
We were best buddies my whole life, even at the END.
He was more than my Dad……he was my best friend.
Yep – Dad and I were buddies and even though I was way “closer” to my Mom, Dad and I had an understanding…………you know – it was a “guy thing”…………! So that’s my poem for the day and you know next week we’ll be doing “E” so I’m already giving THAT some thought……………elephant? Encyclopedia? Electricity? The possibilities are endless (say – ENDLESS is an “E” word!).
Happy Thursday peeps!
