Thankful and Poetic Thursday



It’s that time again………..time to thankful and time to share poetry!    Brian is the host for the Thankful Blog Hop and you can get to his blog and link up with us to be thankful by clicking the badge above.    I’m thankful to have my house back to “normal” now that Mom and Dad have taken all the decorations down except for ONE THING – I miss my INSIDE TREE!!!!!   The rest of the trees around here are OUTSIDE and it’s COLD out there!   The INSIDE TREE was nice and cozy and warm and had a nice warm quilt under it and I had the BESTEST NAPS there.   Anyway, Mom promised me it will be back again next year.   I’ll try not to continue pouting.     I’m also thankful that Mom and Dad are still OK.   

Now I’ll share Angel Sammy’s poetry email he sent to me last night……… can see not only the poem he wrote for the photo he gave us LAST week to use as inspiration but the new photo for NEXT Thursday!


Happy Thursday!   Ready for some poetry??

I hope you’re ready and I hope (sincerely) that if you have written a poem for last week’s photo you will share it with us.    Those of us who write a poem every week wish you would join us in using the photos I give you as inspiration for a little (or big) poem.    Poetry is fun and everybody can write poetry.   Give it a try will you?    We’d love to have you join us!

Here’s the photo I gave you LAST week followed by the poem I wrote.  By the way, I thought this was such a SWEET photo.   I like to think the big old dog wanted to play ball with the little guy……”C’mon – let’s play!”…….

“A Boy And His Dog”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell      ©January 6, 2021


He can barely talk but he knows a few words

“Dog”, “ball”, are the two his dog has heard!

A boy and his dog are pals right from the start

A bond that is strong and stays deep in the heart

The moment was captured on film thankfully

A memory to enjoy for his whole family

The boy will grow up and his kids will have pets

Unconditional love is as good as it gets……………..


Life moves on at a frantic pace but those little moments between kids and their pets – just like the ones between kids and their parents – are indelibly ingrained in everyone’s memory.   They’re recalled throughout a lifetime in quiet moments while looking through albums or watching home movies…… just might be that it’s all part of learning to LOVE – learning to CARE – learning about relationships.    One thing I know for sure, I was mighty happy to be part of my family before I had to leave for the Bridge.    I think my Mom and Dad will always remember me just like I will forever remember them.

Now – who wants to see the photo I found for you to write a poem about for NEXT week?    

Gosh – I’m going to have to think about this one.    Would this increase the value of the homes in the neighborhood or………………….not?   HAHAHA     Anyway should be fun writing a poem about this one.    I hope you take it on as a project – you have a whole week to think about it!

Meanwhile, please continue to take good care of yourselves……………..and stay safe……….please.

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

Love forever, Angel Sammy


Thanks Angel Sammy as always for a fun poem and a great photo for next week too.    I’m kind of thinking I wouldn’t want to live in that igloo house – no windows to watch birdies and squirrels out of for one thing!!!!!

Hugs, Teddy

  1. I would get claustrophobia in that ‘house’!

    Your poem made m smile…and I too thought that there was and forever will be a special bond between those two.

    I wanna play ball…
    But you’re holding it tight!
    If you let go, let it fall,
    I could roll it, then you’ll chase it, right?!
    And fetch it back…
    Then we’ll share our snack!

    • You wrote an adorable poem for what we thought was a totally adorable photo!! Thanks for writing one – we just had to think there would be some precious poetry with a photo like this!!

      Hugs, Pam


  2. That is a lovely poem, Angel Sammy. The little boy and his best friend will have lots of ball games in the years to come.


  3. I am sorry your indoor tree is gone for now. Great poem from Angel Sammy. Having a pet as a child does make for a lifetime of pet loving. Have a great day! XO


    • My Mom is happy to be a Mom to cats and I know you are too. I sure do miss our tree – Mom thinks it’s pitiful that I’m still lying on the floor in the same spot where the tree skirt and tree were. When she walks by I give her a very pitiful look.


    • Isn’t it fun to write a poem every week. Just one poem – not asking too much – just enough to allow us to let our creative wings fly!!!!!!! Thanks for having fun with us! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

      Love, Pam and Teddy too


    • I’m with you Cupcake….that fleece is so cozy and warm and I miss being UNDER the tree napping. It’s just not the same lying on the naked floor where the tree skirt was. At least it’s near the heat vent! HAHA

      Hugs, Teddy


  4. We are sure that the little guy and that big pup will grow up to be the best of pals forever.

    That house is missing only one thing that we LOVE – snow!!!

  5. That was a very sweet poem, Angel Sammy and Granny told me that she can’t remember that she didn’t had any kind of animal in her life. She says that it is the best bond she has ever had. Now pass over that ball and let’s play! I made a poem for you too and hope you like it, it’s coming in a little bit later, but better late than never, right 😉 Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend to all of you 🐾😽💞


    • Oh Binky I really loved your poem! I really DID! My Mom says having animals in her life made things not just more interesting but taught her so much about love and caring!!! I’m glad she loves and cares about me but I don’t mind sharing that with the other kitties who visit us for a meal or a warm outside house for the night.

      Hugs, Teddy


  6. Mom was pretty miffed at herself when she accidentally deleted the poem she had written, and her brain could not conjure up enough of it to rewrite it. We don’t know why she does so much dumb stuff. Sammy, you captured the photo purrfectly. Next week’s photo is a hoot. The poems should be great.
