Thankful and Poetic Thursday


What a week!   Lots to be thankful for certainly.    We had a wonderful Christmas and we hope if you celebrated it – you did too!    I am so thankful Santa visited me again this year AND that many of my buddies and pals sent me surprises.    We will need to step up our game next year – people were so kind and generous this year.   Now I can relax under the Christmas tree again until it comes down after New Year.   No more boxes under there – JUST ROOM FOR ME TO STRETCH OUT AND SNOOZE!

Thankfully Angel Sammy sent his poem to me last night and I’ll share it below.


Hello Poetry Friends!   I hope you had a fabulous Christmas!

I was watching while my little earth-side brother Teddy opened his Christmas presents and I know for SURE he had a nice Christmas………….so did my parents.   I was there – I am sure they knew that.    We at the Rainbow Bridge enjoy watching our families back home – THAT is the best gift of all.   

Now did you write a poem to share this week?    Hope so – let us know in comments if you did.   We want to read it!   If you haven’t written one – why not try to?    I give you a photo every week to use as inspiration for your poem.    Easy!    Here’s last week’s photo and my poem follows.

“Majestic Magic”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell      ©December 26, 2019

Silent woods and the smell of pine

Gliding along like this is so sublime

The snow is crunchy under my sleigh

The horses laugh with a gentle neigh

Day after Christmas through fresh fallen snow

It’s my personal tradition – my own private show

The peace of the woods and the quiet all around

Sleigh bells ring but my heart sings along with the sound

When I get back home from my ride in the woods

Leftover turkey and trimmings will taste extra good!

There was no “white Christmas” back in my home in Virginia for Mom, Dad and Teddy but here at the Rainbow Bridge where it’s always beautiful we can have a touch of snow if we want – and some of you MIGHT remember that I used to LOVE to play in the snow.    My parents always thought that was crazy but I really did love it.

Yep – that’s ME out in the snow!    

No matter if you had snow or played at the beach for your holiday this year I hope it was wonderful………………….AND I also hope you will join us NEXT week and write a poem to share – here’s the photo I picked out for our inspiration for NEXT Thursday!

Yes I know I do a lot of little kids photos – but they have such great expressions on their faces and do such funny things – they take SUPER photos.    This one on his first (probably) bike is too darn cute but I bet we find ourselves writing some good poetry with this one!!

SO – Have a great week – join me here next Thursday………………and I hope you have a wonderful New Year!

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

Yay 2020!  Love, Angel Sammy


Thanks Angel Sammy……………..loved your poem and I just know a lot of our poetic friends will share theirs with us and everyone else too!    I will hope for a happy new year for everybody too.

Hugs, Teddy

    • Some kitties are just SNOWCATS as you say…..Sammy really loved it but Teddy is not happy with it. He will go outside in the cold but not pleased with COLD FEET! A magic sleigh ride is a great thing to do on the day after Christmas don’t you think? I know Angel Sammy was happy that you liked his poem!

      Happy boxing Day!
      Love, Teddy

    • I knew when I saw the photo Angel Sammy picked (!) for this week that YOU would have fun with your poem for this week and you certainly did…..Reading everyone else’s poem I see your dream was a common one for little boys and girls and some are lucky enough to make it happen in their lives. This photo is quite magical really – I could swear I hear bells every time I look at the photo!

      hugs,Pam and Teddy too

  2. Angel Sammy, I love seeing you out there enjoying the snow. Our Angel Robin also did. Happy day today for you on the Bridge and your Mom and dad and Broehtre at home. XX


    • Thank you! I will be sure Angel Sammy sees your comments. We sure do miss that guy around here. I’m with you though – no paws in the snow for me – unless I absolutely HAVE to in order to get a bite of grass!

      Hugs, Teddy


  3. this was such a lovely post Teddy! Loved the poem and all of the photos! Too funny that your Mom and my Mom have the same scarf! They should get together and wear them together one day! Love, Cody


  4. Lovely poem Angel Sammy and I love the pictures of you in the snow♥
    I knew you would have a wonderful Christmas, Teddy! Yes, we did too! Good friends and good FOOD! Our plans changed and we had dinner at our friends. So there is a roast in our crock pot right now… Hahaha!


    • Oh nice! We had friends here for that incredibly delicious Honeybaked Ham I got – I made green bean casserole, a great sweet ‘tater and cranberry casserole and corn pudding and we ATE until we couldn’t move!! I’m so happy you had dinner with friends. I bet that roast smells good – we’re having leftovers tonight. “One more time” !!! HAHAHA

      Love and Big Hugs, Pam

  5. That is a lovely wintry scene for your great poem, Angel Sammy.
    I am glad you all had a good Christmas. We had a pantomime for our afternoon entertainment today and my face still aches from laughing so much. The entertainment team mostly ad lib it and that makes it so much funnier. Having a G&T now before dinner and tonight’s show.


    • Hi Marv and Mom Barb – we’re happy that you see our posts and enjoy Angel Sammy’s poetry day! Now Marv you need to get your talented Mom to write a poem one of these weeks -OK????

      Love, Teddy


  6. One of our black kitties loves to lie down and roll around in the snow – same as she does when there is green grass.
    Purrs to you and your Mom & Dad (& Angel Sammy) for the New Year !


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