Thankful and Poetic Thursday

It’s a “Two-Fer” Day! 

We’re being THANKFUL with Brian and POETIC with Angel Sam

First up – Thankful Thursday which is hosted by my buddy Brian – if you click his BADGE you can visit his blog, and use his LINKY tool to hook up your “Thankful” post to the Hop.   We share all our thankfuls every Thursday.   After such a tough and sad week with the tragedy in Las Vegas all I can say is that I know everyone there was THANKFUL that there were so many concert attendees as well as First Responders who helped EVERYONE who needed it……..we are so sad for those who were killed and those who were wounded.   It breaks our hearts………….truly.

On a lighter note, my Angel brother Sammy didn’t let me down this week – last night he transmitted via his trusty computer which he took with him to the Rainbow Bridge when he left in December – his weekly THOROUGHLY POETIC THURSDAY poem and post…………..and HERE it is!!


Greetings from the Rainbow Bridge my friends……..

We’re working our way down (up?) the alphabet to the end – this week we’re all writing poems about ANYTHING that starts with the letter “Q”………….I did give you some prompts if you needed them to help get your creativity jump-started last week……….these were the prompts which you could use if you needed to!

(1) Quiet (2) Quarrel (3) Q-Tip (4) Quack

If you wrote a poem this week, you can put your blog link in the comments here and we’ll follow the link and read your MASTERPIECE or you can even just type your poem in our comments and we’ll read it here!    I hope you wrote something though – if I can write poetry my friends, YOU can write poetry.  Give it a try – you might surprise yourself!!!!

Late at night when you’ve gone to bed

You might have visions of me in your head

In that twilight time before you sleep

We Angels visit – into your beds we creep!

We snuggle up close and let you know

We miss you too – it’s love we show………

We’re quiet and careful not to wake you up!

We won’t knock over the clock or your water cup!

We just want to be with you for a little while

Even though you’re asleep, we can see your smile….

We cannot stay, we must all be quick…..

But on your hand or your cheek we might give a lick!

A kiss of love, a promise that we will keep

To be with you on your journey for your FINAL SLEEP………….


We Angels will be with you – our beloved humans – when your turn comes……it’s what we do……it’s our turn to take care of YOU like you took care of us when we were with you.   Now if that’s not TRUE LOVE, what is????   

Next week we will be celebrating the letter “R” and I’ll give you four prompt words to help you get your imagination going and thinking of what YOU will write about next Thursday!   Ready?

(1) Rain (2) Run (3) Ruin (4) Rabbit

Maybe those will give you some ideas……… can write about ANYTHING that starts with an “R” though………use your imagination – we animals have good imaginations !!!!    I hope you have a great week and I’ll look forward to reading your poetry next Thursday!    Give it a try – you might just have FUN writing a poem!!

I Love and Miss You All,

Angel Sammy


Thanks dear brother……………..I know you’ll inspire at least a couple of our friends to give writing a poem for Thoroughly Poetic Thursday a whirl next week!    Meanwhile, thanks to everybody for stopping by today…………we hope you have a THANKFUL and POETIC day today!

Yep – it’s me – with my torn up red cube AND my “Mr. Rag” that is my best buddy and pal

Love, Teddy the Butter Bean

    Oh we know that feeling when angels are there to give us a good night kiss… and how much I wish they could stay….


    • 2

      Oh yes……….if only we COULD stay we would but we are meant to just be there when you need us the most and when you feel like you have nobody else – that’s when Angels SING the loudest and hug the hardest…….

      Love, Angel Sammy

      We Angels can appear any time we can make it through the cloud. Sometimes we have a lot of “work” to do here but just as human Angels visit, WE visit – usually when we’re needed the most but sometimes just for FUN!

      Love and Hugs, Angel Sammy

    Very thoughtful post today. I leaked from my eyes a little.
    We also joined in here. . .

    That was a beautiful poem from Angel Sammy. Our bed must be like Grand Central with all the angels we have to visit us. You are so adorable Teddy, you really get into your toys. XO


    • 18

      I am sure that your bed is not only full of your current brood of sweeties BUT so very many Angels from the past…….that’s a WHOLE LOT OF LOVE to send you off into dream land!

      Hugs, Teddy and Mom too

    Very sweet poem, Angel Sammy. Your “rag” Teddy… I get it. I still have my blankie and Suds… 🙂 Sorry I have been missing, still doing jury stuff.


    • 20

      Oh Miss Pix we had hoped maybe you wouldn’t be chosen for that jury duty thingie but BRAVO TO YOU FOR being involved in “THE PROCESS”! Did they elect you QUEEN of the jury?

      Love, Teddy


      • 21

        There have been 3 trials, 2 did not proceed and there was a trial Tuesday that after spending 8 hours at the court house I was not selected. Now a trial set for the 10th. Have to call Monday night to see if it is still proceeding… if so the jury selection will begin at 8 am Tuesday morning. No, no QUEEN of the jury… I am too shy.


        • 22

          Yes my Mom always said she never wanted to be the Queen either……she’d rather melt into the background and just LISTEN closely. But like I said, she hasn’t been chosen yet. Purrrrrhaps that wild look in her eye? HAHAHA

          Love, Teddy


  11. 23

    I love this. *tears* What a great poem. And, Teddy, you are adorable. We have a ripped up blue cube (tent). George usually does this, but Clyde just did it! You guys! xo


    • 24

      Oh I love that you have a torn up tent too!!!!! I absolutely beat this one up like MAD when I moved in here and it was Angel Sammy’s cube so I feel a little BAD about ripping it up but Mom says it’s just as special RIPPED UP as it was WHOLE! HAHAHAHA GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CLYDE!

      Hugs, Teddy

    WoW! What a great poem Mr Angel Sammy and Mr Teddy! We quite often feel like Queen Penelope is in bed with us…and we can even hear her snores! Teddy, I am quite impressed with how you have “fixed” your cube! I, Marvelous, have not entered mine…It kind of scares me a little.


    • 26

      Oh Marvelous – your cube can be your friend…….although now that you mention it, my blue cube (which looks like YOUR blue cube) is nowhere NEAR as wonderful as my beat up/torn up/taggedy red one. I’m not afraid of the blue one but it’s just not BROKEN IN ENOUGH YET!!!! I’m glad that Angel Queen Nellie visits you and your Mommy. They never leave us……ever.

      Hugs, Teddy


  13. 27

    You are so right, Angel Sammy. Mom loves those quiet moments when our Angels visit her too. It really warms the heart.

    So many good people in our world, helping others and doing what is right. How very sad that one evil one can do so much harm.

    Woos -Lightning, Misty, and Timber


    • 28

      Yes…..visiting Angels make our hearts happy and make us feel more “settled”……..everyone needs a little Angel-love in their lives these days!!

      Hugs, Teddy

    Katie Isabella Says:

    Sometimes, mommy said she feels tiny footsteps at the foot of the bed or feels a faint feeling as though the lightest kitty just leapt onto the bed from the floor. Admiral, is that you my love?


  15. 31

    What a sweet poem.


  16. 33
    Brian Says:

    That was a wonderful poem and we love our Angels too.


  17. 35

    We love Angel Sammy’s poem!

    Mary McNeil Says:

    Thank you for your beautiful poem !


  19. What a beautiful poem, Angel Sammy! I know that I sure do love when my Angel Rosie, and all of my angels, visit me.


  20. Nighty-night kisses from fur-angels are the very best. ‘Quite’ the poem, Angel Sammy. 👼🏼


  21. 43

    We think this is one of your best poems ever, Sammy. It is purrfection, and it makes our mom feel so much better about all our brothers and sisters who are no longer with us physically. She can totally imagine this happening. We wrote a poem as well. It is here:
    XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy


    • 44

      Thank you KB Krew…..I think I do my best work up at the Bridge – it’s quiet and peaceful and my mind goes to things that I LOVE…I get SAD when I see what’s going on in the world these days but my mind is full of love and hope here at the Bridge. We loved your poem today too!!!!

      Love, Angel Sammy

    What a lovely poem Angel Sammy!!! I read it to neffkitty Siddhartha Henry & he purred!
    As he is still so sick I shall try my hand at a small poem:

    With Siddhartha Henry so ill,
    The apartment seems too quiet…
    Only his recovery can refill.”

    by Sherri-Ellen T-D.”


    • 48

      Oh this is so sad………we are really concerned about the little man……….praying he will be well soon. He is a strong-hearted boy though so we’re hoping THAT wins over illness!

      Love, Pam and Teddy

      Liked by 1 person

      • 49

        Many thanks Teddy! I never thought I’d WANT the rambunctious wild man back but I do!
        Baytril given last night; a slight improvement. Fingers & paws crossed this med will clear everything from Siddhartha Henry 😉
        (((hugs))) Sherri-Ellen
