Thankful and Poetic Thursday


Happy Thankful and Poetic Thursday!    First up is thankfuls………………then we’ll share Angel Sammy’s poem for the week.    When Halloween rolls around I have to admit I’m always very thankful that I have a home to be safe and sound in.   All the animals who are living the life of a feral or are homeless for reason come to mind when scary things are happening like Halloween or July 4th.   Both can be noisy and both can be frightening.    Not for me – I can watch the little kids at the front door from the safety of my home.    That’s a BIG THANKFUL for this time of year.

Angel Sammy’s poem which had a cute sort of Halloween costume theme is below.   If you wrote a poem to go with the photo let us know – we love to reach everyone’s poetry on Poetry Thursday!

Hello Poetry Fans!   Time to share our poems……….

The photo I gave you last Thursday for inspiration for today’s poem was chosen because it popped up when I searched for “Cute Halloween Photos” – and it IS cute isn’t it.   Those two little kids look beyond adorable.    Matching twin costumes – if you remember “The Carol Burnett Show” you remember the character “Mama”………these two cuties are double Mamas!

Here’s the photo I gave you and my poem follows………….

“Baby Grannies”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell                  ©October 30, 2019

Oh my goodness will you lookie there!

Two little Grannies with matching hair!

Looking at the camera without a clue

Double adorable – “precious times two” !

It will be many years ahead before you are Grannies

Your hips will be wide without diapers on your fannies!

Your hair will be gray not from yarn but from years

No giggles in the mirror, instead there may be tears….

The age of innocence will be oh so far behind

But that “little girl inside” will remain…..and be kind.


Kids grow up so quickly.    One day these two will see this photo and laugh…….and probably NOT remember this photo session.    But it will be a treasure to have.   My Mom has photos of herself in Halloween costumes when she could barely walk.   Her Mom would dress her up as a gypsy with odds and ends from her closet.    It was an easy costume and little kids are pretty flexible about what they wear so it worked out just fine.    These two in the photo aren’t minding the glasses or the wigs or anything else – they just look ADORABLE.    

If you’re taking your kids out tonight for Halloween, have fun.   Be on the alert……….don’t stay out too late……….watch out for wandering animals………take photos – one day they will be SO MUCH FUN to share……….just like this photo of the two little kids above!

Speaking of Halloween – I just HAVE to share this photo of one of Teddy’s friends named Sawyer – one of the Kitties Blue living at The Cat On My Head.    Sawyer missed the deadline to send in his Halloween costume photo for our Teaserween posts but the costume is so darn cute I thought I’d show it here – talk about a CAT in the PERFECT costume!!!

Good one Sawyer!!!

Ready for next week’s photo????

Sweet…………………lots of possibilities for a poem from this photo…………….there’s a lot there…………..more than meets a cursory glance I’m sure!      So we’ll meet here same time next week and share our poetry?   Did you write one for today’s photo?    Let us know in comments – we want to READ IT!    GOOD FOR YOU!


I am the Angel Poet in the green beret…..and I hope you join me for POETIC FUN each week!

See you next Thursday……have fun tonight for Halloween…..give someone a hug – both of you will enjoy it!   

Love, Angel Sammy

Thank you Angel Sammy………………….Do you Trick or Treat at the Rainbow Bridge?    I bet you dress up like a little devil – you always had a great sense of humor!

Love, Teddy

  1. true… we wonder that the toddler who played with matchbox cars yesterday suddenly drives a car… and the little girl with the roller skates is married now… oh my! must be magic, right? Happy Halloween!


  2. There was a deer on the road in front of our den, likely looking for good things to eat…though a wee bit too early for the trick or treat stuff, MOL!

    Loved your poem…and the next pic somehow reminded me of All in the Family, though he doesn’t look the part. She sure does…MOL! What a fun smooch!


  3. That is a dear photo with the two baby Grannies and an even more dear poem, Angel Sammy. And the picture for next week is one to think of and dream over for a poem about them. You know, Sawyer looks more adorable than I have ever seen looking like a mousie peeping out there! XXXXX

  4. That was a great poem. Next week’s photo is sweet, thanks to your mom for finding such great prompts. I love your Halloween art Teddy. Happy Halloween! Hope you get lots of treats. XO


    • Glad you enjoy Poetic Thursday – it’s fun finding photos and reading everyone’s GREAT poetry! We had a pretty quiet Halloween as far as doorbell ringing goes – few kids were out in the horrid weather – made for a cozy evening!

      Hugs, Teddy


  5. Another smashing poem from Angel Sammy! My Mom remembers the cute costumes Grandma made her when she was a lil’ girl. She wishes she still had them. She does’t have any photos of them either. Have fun greeting tricks-or-treaters. Purr purr.


    • Hi Valentine! Glad you liked the poem this week from Angel Sammy. The photo was such a cute one – Mom remembers some of her “little girl” costumes but of course after 70+ years doesn’t have any of them and very few photos of them either!

      Happy Halloween PLUS ONE!
      Love, teddy

  7. Oh My Catness we totally furgot about Teaserween! AHHHH. That is scary as dad says his head leaks like a sieve unless he takes notes. Well he has always been like that and he remembers to feed and treat us so… Love the poem and those two are sooo cute. Getting old is a part of life and we are all glad to be in a loving home and part of it. We are really glad to be a tiny part of your lives too.
    Happy Halloween


  8. Teddy, is that you in the final arty photo? It is absolutely gorgeous! Good job on that poem, Sammy. Mom remembers when her grandmother was in her 80s that she asked her how she felt “inside.” She told her no differently than when she was a young girl. Mom now knows that is true. Sawyer feels so honored to be featured here. He needs that costume for real, as he and some others of us think there might be a mouse under the stove. We have been on guard at night. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer,


    • UHOH……a mouse in the house? Well, no doubt one of the Kitties Blue crew will take care of “IT” in no time – hopefully it won’t be left in your slipper the next morning though!!!

      Hugs, Teddy


  9. Teddy, we are so happy you got to have a spooktacular Halloween in the safety of your wonderful home! Angel Sammy, your poem matches the adorable photo purrfectly! Now I wish some of our trick-or-treaters had looked like this. Purrs!


I wanna know what YOU've got to say!!
