Thankful and Poetic Thursday


Happy Thursday – and it’s a special day for yours truly – it’s my FIFTH birthday today.    I was almost a year old when I was adopted by my Mom and Dad (which by the way is my BIG THANKFUL for today) – I was 11 months old when hey waltzed into the Animal Shelter and saw me.    I made goo goo eyes at Mom and the rest is history.   I am MORE than THANKFUL.

Today is also Poetic Thursday which is when my Angel brother Sammy sends us his poem of the week based on the photo he gave us LAST week to use as inspiration.   We are supposed to write a poem every Thursday to share with each other.    The photos are always fun and so far we’ve read SOOOOO many fabulous poems YOU all have written using Sammy’s photos to inspire your words!!

My Poetic Brother Angel Sammy

Let’s see what he wrote for all of us this week AND see what photo he chose for us to use for NEXT Thursday!


Greetings Poets and Happy Birthday Little Bro’ !!!

Let’s start off today with me reminding you all that YES YOU CAN WRITE A POEM.    We get lots of notes from you saying you “can’t write poetry” when really it’s NOT that hard to do.   Poetry doesn’t even have to rhyme.    There are TONS of poetic forms – short, long, rhyming and not.    It’s fun to use a photograph to inspire your poem and I give you one every week with a whole WEEK to come up with a poem to share.   

Here’s the photo I gave you last week which hopefully you used to write a poem for today – if you wrote one, just tell us in comments here OR give us a link to where we can read your masterpiece!!

“My Comfort Zone”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell      ©March 3, 2021

Mommy, Mommy, are you listening?

I’m so scared that my diaper is glistening

This kiddie wagon is awfully tiny

There’s hardly room for my diapered hiney!

What if I fall – what if I should crash?

What if I get a case of nervous diaper rash?

I see that you’re laughing but it’s not funny to me

Please get me out of this thing NOW and set me free!


Poor little baby – some people will do anything for a humorous photo and while this is actually adorably cute and funny to this baby it is no laughing matter!    I think he or she is most definitely NOT pleased with this photo shoot.     Babies make wonderful subjects for photos though – they do so many delightfully adorable things that it’s tempting to put them into situations that we think are entertaining but that they might not be so happy about.    Anyway, I can’t wait to see what you’ve written for this photo.    Speaking of photos – here’s next week’s for you to work with to write a poem for next Thursday.

Another Fun One !


There you have it for another week – hope you decide to write a poem for the above photo – we’ll read some poetry NEXT Thursday shall we?   Meanwhile – stay healthy and safe and know that I love all of you and always will.    Even all the way from the Rainbow Bridge!

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


Love and Hugs to all of you and especially my TEDDY BOY


Thanks Angel Sammy…… means a lot that you gave me a special hug for my birthday………………I’ll see you again next week and feel free to visit me in my dreams ANYTIME!


Pee Ess…..I’m sharing my purrrrrsonal horoscope from Cats-Astropic Events (Marv, JoJo, Kozmo and Angel Nellie)


Thank You My Friends!

    • Maybe that’s why the baby has such an upset little face – purrrhaps the diaper-saster has already occurred??????????????

      Thanks for the birthday wishes AND the card on Facebook too – we love all of you….
      Hugs, Teddy (and Mom)


  1. Happy birthday for tomorrow, Teddy!

    When a birthday falls near the weekend in our house, it lasts all weekend. I think you should do that too! 😀


    • We loved your poem……it was adorable! As for me – I’m having a fabulous birthday so far. Mom even gave me TWO instead of ONE treat this morning. Other than the fact she is giving me a birthday pedicure (what kind of present is that?!?!?!), it should be a super special day.

      Hugs, Teddy


  2. Happy Happy Happy birthday precious snuggly Teddy! And Teddy, did you notice that baby in the wagon looks a lot like Winston Churchill?


    • Mom thought he looked a little like Hitler without his mustache. HAHAHAHAHA The baby is stuffed in that tiny wagon and is NOT happy but it sure made for some FUN poems!!!! Thank you for the birthday wishes too!

      Love, Teddy


  3. Happy Birthday Teddy! I can’t believe you are 5, you have such a baby face, you still look like a kitten. That was a fun poem by Angel Sammy. Have a great day! XO


    • Thanks Miss Ellen and kitties! I’m having a wonderful day – my Mom and Dad are going to give ma a pedicure for my birthday – I’m not sure that’s really a GIFT but I know I need it anyway. I still act and feel like a kitten and Mom thinks I always will.

      Hugs, Teddy


  4. Happy birthday Teddy! I heard Miss Dingleberry baked you a cake. It should make a wonderful doorstop…

    As for the new photo…. well, someone’s been digging through the pictures of Mitzi as a girl! I’m not sure the boys at school are ready for her…

    • I love that birthday song – Angel Nellie was the very first one to ever sing that song to Angel Sammy and I love it as much as he did………thanks for the Persian version (!) as well……the writing is beautiful isn’t it.

      Hugs, Teddy


  7. Happy birthday, dearest friend. We are sorry Mom didn’t get a card to you before today, but you can snag it off our blog if you like. Five is a great age, and you sure got the best family ever; though, you had to wait a while. We love that you made goo goo eyes at your mom. The poem made our mom laugh out loud. That really is a crazy photo. Here’s the link to our mom’s limerick:
    Have the bestest day ever. Hope you get some outside time.
    We love you bunches! 🎈🎂🥓👑🥂🎁💝🐈


    • Thank you my dear friends for the birthday card and wishes. I had a most wonderful day – full of hugs, extra treats and I fully cooperated with my pawdicure to thank Mom and Dad for spoiling me EXTRA yesterday! We thought your limerick for Angel Sammy’s photo prompt was SHEER PERFECTION as always!

      Hugs and love, Teddy


    • We sure did love your poem Miss “C”…….Angel Sammy has a lot of fun finding photos for the rest of us earthbounders to use as inspiration – next week’s is another adorable one – kids are great photo subjects!!!!!

      Hugs, Teddy


  8. Happy 5th birthday Teddy! Has it been 4 years that you’ve been at your forever home? Wow….time flies.
    Your poem is right on the mark. I don’t know how you do it every week but each week your poems are better than the week before.

    • Oh we loved your poem – I imagine that COULD be why the baby is upset – being told NO YOU CAN’T DRIVE YET would send anyone into tears!! Thanks for playing poetry with us.

      Hugs, Teddy
      p.s. I had a WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY thanks!


  10. We are sorry to be a day late, Teddy, but we still have very happy and loving wishes for your fifth birthday!!! Sammy did a great job with his poem, that poor little guy will be very happy to get out of that wagon:)
