Happy Thursday All!
Happy Thursday! It’s Thankful Thursday hosted by Brian at Brians Home Blog and YOU get a chance to tell the world what you’re thankful for. This week I’m thankful for those of you who filled out Angel Sammy’s poll about Poetic Thursday – and we’ll talk more about that in a minute. I’m also thankful for my friends – everyone is so kind and caring and it always shows but most especially when we’ve had so much loss of friends which we have had yet again lately. Almost every day we get word of someone else crossing that Bridge……….it makes us sad even when we know those who are gone are no longer in pain, no longer feeling the effects of age, or some other problem…..we know their humans are sad to lose their “best friends”. I wasn’t living here at the time with my Mom and Dad but I do know that they were SO thankful that everyone helped them adjust to life without my big brother Angel Sammy. We hope TIME will help those who have experienced loss recently………..
If you would like to join in and tell everyone what you are thankful for – please click Brian’s badge above – you will be transported to his blog and you can join in the Blog Hop by using the LINKY tool.
Angel Sammy didn’t let me down (he never would do that!) because he transmitted to me overnight his poem for today’s Poetic Thursday poetry challenge. Today is the letter “Y” and his poem follows this bit of info about our continuing with our Poetic Thursdays.
Remember the poll I conducted for Sammy’s Thursday Poetry Challenge? Here are the results:
Sammy’s Poetry Challenge #2
|When we last polled you, 75% of those responding said LET’S DO THE ALPHABET AGAIN….would you STILL like to do that?||11||73%|
|We asked you in October 2016 if you’d like to do something DIFFERENT for poetry day – if you would like that TELL US SO! Leave a suggestion for me or tell me in your comments!
Now about the above Poll………………….we were happy to see that there were more votes for continuing with the Alphabet Challenge for poetry day but there were STILL four of you who wanted something different – – – – so we thought why not combine them?
Starting with NEXT week’s “Z” end of the alphabet poetic challenge, we will give you a choice what to write your poem about for the following Thursday. We will use the alphabet for the FOUR choices! Example:
FOR LETTER “A” I might say “write your poem using one of the below four choices as your subject”:
(1) Aardvark (2) Antarctica (3) Asteroid (4) Applesauce What do you think? Sound like a plan? Next week you will have your usual Poetic Challenge though – whatever you want to write about starting with the letter “Z” goes……….but we will give you FOUR WORDS with next week’s post for us all to start with the following week – maybe I should use those “SAMPLE” words I just told you???? I’ll consult with Angel Sammy!
Greetings from the Rainbow Bridge my friends! As promised, I transmitted this poem to my little brother Teddy last night in his dreams…….and he is sharing it with you on my behalf for Thoroughly Poetic Thursday!!!
by Angel Sammy Kimmell, 6/1/17
Yellow is the shining sun
Yellow goldfinches having fun
Yellow buttercups in the breeze
Yellow lemon ice from the freeze!
Yellow grass turns green with lime
Yellow tarnish on silver over time
Yellow nip nanners are a kitty’s delight
Yellow moon shining in the sky at night
Yellow old love letters tucked away
Yellow sun hiding on a rainy day.
Thank you Angel Sammy………………..I look forward to your weekly “transmissions” of your poems AND to your continued guidance and love even though you are almost always at the Bridge now. I enjoyed your visits and I’m sure you will from time to time but you are where you need to be now – and I will carry on taking care of Mom and Dad for BOTH of us!!!!
Now for some confessions………….Mom thinks I’m a crazy boy because I have totally destroyed the first “kitty cube” she got for me to play in…..I still have it mind you – but Mom got me a NEW one a while ago – a pretty blue one which is not receiving the degree of KITTY KRAZIES that the poor red one did. So here’s the deal – I want to keep BOTH of them and I play in BOTH of them all the time – every single morning in fact. Mom and I hang out in her office before Dad gets up and part of what we do is play like crazy in my cubes!
See how wonky the old one is – from me laying all over it and beating it up like mad – bunny kicking, biting, attacking, etc.??? I can’t help it – I love playing in it and using it as a launch pad to land inside the blue one. Yes – this is part of growing up I guess – destroying toys and having fun! Also that purple ribbon is my current FAVORITE toy. I drag it all over the house – this morning Mom found it on her pillow and didn’t even know that I’d deposited it there in the middle of the night! Tee Hee
Tomorrow is Friday! We’ll be doing the Friendly Fill-In blog hop…………will you??????????????????
Love, Teddy the Tent Destroyer
