Thankful and Poetic Thursday


Happy Thursday everybody!   Our day to be thankful AND to play with some poetry too.    First up – THANKFULS.    Very thankful this week that some tests my Dad had came out perfect and he’s fine and dandy.   Also thankful that me and my Mom and Dad have been enjoying a lot of quality time outside………even in the rain a couple of days!    Thankful as always for Brian hosting this fabulous Hop for everyone too.   Brian – you’re a PRINCE!

Now are you ready for some poetry??


Hello Poetry Friends!

It’s our time – the one day a week I transmit a poem AND a new photo for all of us to use for writing our poems every Thursday.    If you happen to be new to this occasion, every Thursday I post a photo here – usually something “interesting” or “unusual” or just plain “fun” and we all have a whole week to write a poem inspired by the photo!    I look forward to Thursdays and I hope you all do too.    All you need to do is let the photo “speak to you” and write a poem about the photo – then the following Thursday I’ll post MY poem and you will let us know your link where we can read YOUR poem (or you can write the poem in my comments here!!).   EASY PEASY!

Here’s the photo I gave you last Thursday – followed by my poem……...

“Uhoh Bingo”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell  ©June 8, 2022


“Clara I think Mathilda Higgenbottom is cheating!

She’s won the last four rounds from her front row seating!

AND the Bingo caller keeps smiling at her and she keeps winking

Are you thinking the same thing that I’m thinking?

Here she comes strutting right by our table

To pick up yet ANOTHER prize wearing that tacky fake sable!

I do declare she is a shameless hussy

Now you know I rarely complain – I’m really not fussy

But next break I swear up to the stage I’m going

I’ll embarrass that caller until his bald head is glowing!

Here she comes back by us with her FOURTH prize

And I just might trip her when she wins number FIVE!”


OK – I know it’s a mean poem but who could resist.  Just look at those three ladies – can you convince me they aren’t thinking the same thing????   HAHAHA    That was a totally fun photo to use for inspiration – hope you wrote one to share with us!!

Here’s your photo for NEXT week…………..

The mind boggles doesn’t it!!!   Should be fun………………………….let your imagination be your guide and share your poem for this photo NEXT Thursday right here!   In the meantime, please stay happy and healthy and hopeful.

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

Love Always, Angel Teddy


Oh Teddy that was a hilarious poem – you make me laugh so hard!    I miss you so very much…………………and I never even met you!

Hugs, Teddy

  1. Well, that was a WINNER. Of course it HAD to be a little snide…just look at that hussy trying to cheat by flirting with the caller. Well, I never!!! And her wardrobe was so out of place for a bingo hall. HILARIOUS. I saw the whole thing as a movie. BRAVA.


  2. Next week’s picture abominable snowman…or Yeti…well, um…um…well, you know!! OMC!!! LOL,LOL!

    Here is my silly poem…

    Look who came late
    To OUR Bingo game.
    She just butted in
    WELL, for shame!

    She had the gall
    To fill in her card.
    To call a Bingo.
    Our egos are scarred.

    We take this game
    Very seriously,
    Late one had some nerve!
    Now our anger’s aflame.

  4. Teddy, Angel Sammy, you totes outdid yourselves!!! Seriously. That photo calls OUT for that poem! I can almost HEAR it instead of read it.


  5. That was a great poem. Angel Sammy never disappoints. Thanks to your mom for finding such cool prompts. Have a nice day. XO


  6. I get a kick out of those ladies! I think you went the right way with the poem, Angel Sammy. I enjoyed and giggled as I read it. I am glad you are getting outside time and am happy to hear your Dad is all good with tests. Good Morrrningggggggggggg!


    • We hoped Angel Sammy’s poem would be giggle-worthy… makes him particularly happy when peeps like his poetic masterpieces! Yep – I’m getting lots of outside time – Mom says TOO MUCH because she can’t get anything done that SHE wants to do because I’m always whining about “OWWWW” !

      Hugs, Teddy


    • We loved your poem – it was perfect – the poems today are really fun aren’t they?! Tell Bryan we thought the middle lady looked like MOE (and probably his Mom too!).

      Hugs, Pam


  7. Ha ha – we love your take on the photo. Mom loved playing Bingo years ago along with her mother, and she said some of those games could get very heated!

    Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber


  8. Sammy, your poem gave our mom a good laugh. It had the same theme as Ellen’s, and we really could picture that these ladies were thinking something just like what you wrote. Next week’s photo is a doozy. Our mom did write a poem and here is the link:
    XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, angel Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet
