Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday


Yay!  It’s 2-For-1 Day!

First up in our two posts in one day is our friend Brian’s Thankful Thursday……………even though all of us are thankful every day, we set aside Thursday to SHARE what we’re thankful for by hooking up to Brian’s Blog Hop – just click his badge above and you will go there right away then use the LINKY tool to “hook up” !!

I want to say that today I’m particularly THANKFUL for my Mom.   Why?   Well, this whole week I’m “away” at Cat Scouts (online of course) and we’re at Yosemite at Summer Camp.   We’ve had TWO craft projects to complete and Mom of course did them for me since unlike my brother Angel Sammy, I don’t have thumbs!    One was making a special hat and the other actually was something for Scout Moms.   It’s an infinity scarf but we had to paint it and it’s drying so I can’t show you that but I CAN show you the cool hat she made from the instructions we got – she had to sew it by hand.  I think she did a SWELL job and I am so THANKFUL!

YAY MOM!   Thanks for helping me at Cat Scouts.   We have so much fun – she’s going to try to get a photo of me wearing the cap (hahahahahaha good luck with that!)………Interested in joining Cat Scouts?  Just go HERE to register.   Tell them Angel Sammy and Teddy sent ya!

Now on to part #2 of the blog today which was sent to me LAST NIGHT in an email from my Angel brother Sammy………………’s what he sent!


Hello from the Rainbow Bridge my friends!

Today is my Thoroughly Poetic Thursday poetry day………………my challenge to you is to make it for the THIRD TIME through the alphabet with a poem each week using the NEXT letter of the alphabet.    We are up to the letter “I” – can you believe it?    We’re working our way through!    Anyone can write a poem – so why not you – go ahead – poetry doesn’t even have to RHYME to have a theme and a meaning so if you’d like to join us, please do!   

The way we do this is you are free to write a poem about ANYTHING AT ALL that begins with the letter “I” – OR, you could use one or more of the prompt words I give you every Thursday to use for the following week.    Last week I gave you four “I” prompts that you could use if you want:


Those were kind of tough prompts but I just bet you came up with something INTERESTING (say – that word starts with an “I”!) for your poem this week.    Here’s MINE:



By Angel Sammy Kimmell, 8/9/17

Imagine a place where peace abounds

Endless flowers adorn beautiful grounds

Endless blue in the sky up above

Never a bad thought, just boundless LOVE

Imagine a cloud so soft and secure

A bed for an angel, with dreams that are pure

Imagine being healthy, and young, and revived

You just left one existence but your “self” survived

Your wings lift you up and you fly with such ease

You may visit your family and friends if you please

We have gone from your touch, but we’re with you still

One day we will see you as you come up the hill

Arrive at the Bridge and we run to your side

The love we have held like a rushing tide

We welcome you home – we’re together at last

A reunion so sweet, like mere seconds have passed……….


Yes I’ve written about the Bridge again………….I suppose it’s just natural for me to do that because after all – I’m HERE!    It really is a wonderful place and those of us who are here will be waiting for you – our beloved humans – until you are able to join us.   Meanwhile, look for us in your dreams………..or in the clouds on a clear day……….or at the end of the RAINBOW!

Your prompt words next week if you wish to use one will be:

(1) Juicy (2) Jump (3) Jungle (4) Jealous

See you next week!  

Love, Angel Sammy


Thank you for your poem this week Angel Sammy.  One day – hopefully a long time from now, I will join you at the Bridge – what a TIME we will have!!!   Then Mom and Dad will make their way there and we will be together again.

I hope if you have written a poem you will either post your poem in our comments here, OR in comments give us the link to your blog so we can visit you and read your MASTERPIECE!!!!!    Make sure and visit us on Poetry Thursday next week……………..we’ll look for you!!


Love, Teddy

    • HAHAHA…..well dear boy, we loved your poem today – AND we also think your parents and grandparents are VERY clever for making you a brand new SHAME-CHAIR. Will be a lot more comfortable to be in trouble now won’t it?

      Love and Hugs, Teddy


  2. We love the hat and hope that you’ll let your Mommy get a picture of you wearing it! Motor Mommy is really looking forward to seeing the scarf, too!
    Such an absolutely beautiful poem from Angel Sammy. Motor Mommy has a tear in her eye.
    Love, Sundae


    • Well my scarf is actually the one Angel Sammy got a few years ago at Scouts…..I’m sure he won’t mind if I wear it for my photo with the cap on. Glad you liked his poem too!!!

    • I’ll be borrowing Angel Sammy’s Scouts scarf that he got a long time ago for my official Garrison Cap photo….at least that’s the plan….we’ll see how that works out! HAHAHA

      Love, Teddy


  3. That’s a lovely poem from Sammy.

    Teddy, I think you should wear the hat long enough for a photograph, as we’d all love to see you wearing it. But demand lots of treats for doing so!

        • I’m so happy that you and Ladymum have found a space where you can walk without being harassed…..mosquitoes are REALLY BAD this summer – we have them down in our woods – Mom has discovered that if she uses one of those scented dryer towels to rub on her exposed skin the skeeters STAY AWAY! I think she got that hint online…….it works!

          Love, Teddy

            **nose rubsss** Siddhartha Henry xXx


  5. Sammy, we believe this is your best poem yet, and we think Mom Pam should add it to your sidebar. We think it will bring much comfort to those who lose a beloved anipal. We also wrote an imagine poem, but of a different kind. Here’s our link: Sending lots of love to all. We hope the deer return today. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy


    • Oh we SOOOOOOOOOOO love your poem. It would be wonderful if there were no homeless kitties, pups or people in this world but sadly more and more wind up that way every day. We will continue to IMAGINE and HOPE that changes – thanks for pawticipating in Angel Sammy’s poetry challenge. You’re such good friends! Mom will add Sammy’s poem to the sidebar…..maybe it will bring hope to those who experience the loss.

      Hugs, Teddy


    • Mom and Dad are going to TRY to get a photo of me with the hat today. Don’t tell them that I may have other plans! Glad you liked Angel Sammy’s poem – he sounds happy at the Bridge.

      Love, Teddy
