Happy Thursday everybody! Time for us to put on our thinking caps and share with the universe what we are especially thankful for. Since last Thankful I have my Mom and Dad back – that’s a BIG thankful – not that I didn’t enjoy the “spa” of course but there’s no place like home. So THANK YOU to the kind people at Paws A While Pet Hotel and THANK YOU to United Airlines for taking my parents up to Maine for some relaxation AND getting them back home to ME safe and sound!
I got my regular “Poetic” email from Angel Sammy last night so I can share that with you here along with my thankfuls. I’m actually always thankful that he still sends us a poem every week and that he has continued with giving us a photographic inspiration to help us write a poem to share with each other. I know some of you have said you look forward to it. Those who didn’t even think they COULD write a poem have tried it and are loving it – so if you’re on the fence about it – hop off the fence and WRITE! Here’s Angel Sammy’s email.

Greetings Poetry Fans!
Thursday is OUR day to shine. Hope you have written a poem to go with last week’s photo inspiration. I’ll be giving you another one after I share my poem with you today. I enjoy finding photos that I think you will enjoy using as a springboard to your poems. Remember, your poem can be in ANY form. Poetry doesn’t even have to rhyme – it just has to “speak to people” in some way. YOU CAN DO IT!
Here’s the photo I gave you last week – followed by the poem I wrote to go with the photo:
Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell ©October 16, 2019
There’s a popular thing happening in the world of camping
It’s “glamorous camping” and it’s called GLAMPING
No sleeping bags for them, no oil lamps or candles
No big hiking boots – they wear high heels and sandals!
I might be exaggerating just a bit
But glampers have CHAIRS – not rocks on which to sit
Their meals aren’t on sticks roasted over the fire
They have gourmet dinners any Chef would inspire!
Their campsites look more like an outdoor hotel
No canvas tents for them with that old, damp smell !
But all of us who enjoy being in the great outdoors
Whether in glamour or tradition – WE ALL LOVE THOSE S’MORES !!!
Of course before I became an Angel I was a Cat Scout and now Teddy is a Cat Scout……………and we enjoy s’mores around the campfire when we go camping. Cat Scouts is fun – and in fact a few years ago Scouts actually WENT Glamping at a pretty fancy place out West. It was DIFFERENT but I think most of us really enjoy camping the way it’s always been done – with shelters like tents or sticks and covering, with a nice fire to keep warm and cook over……….being in the great outdoors and “roughing it” !! You cats ought to consider CAT SCOUTS – it’s easy to join too!
Did you write a poem from the photo? If you did, let us know in comments or give us your link. If you didn’t – make sure and try NEXT week. Here’s the photo we’ll be using for next Thursday’s poetry exchange…………….
Let’s all see what we can come up with for this photo shall we? We’ll meet right here – same time next week – I’ll be here – WILL YOU??????????????????
Love to all of you from the Rainbow Bridge………Angel Sammy

Oh I liked your poem Angel Sammy. I’ve been camping a few times at Scouts and it is fun. It wouldn’t be the same if my tent felt like our living room though! HAHAHA See you next week my brother.
