Thankful and Poetic Thursday


Time for THANKFULS!    Thanks to Brian we celebrate the things we’re thankful for every Thursday in a Hop and if you’d like to join Brian’s Hop – click the badge above and link up.

I’m very thankful for the pretty Spring weather because I’ve been able to get Mom or Dad or both of them to take me outside for longer periods of time.   I can lie in the grass or walk around the yard (with one of my “minders” with me of course), or hunt for skinks under our sidewalk……….or sometimes keep them company up on the shady porch.   I’m also thankful that even though they disappeared for a WHOLE DAY last Sunday they DID eventually come back home to ME ME ME.   I like it best when they’re HOME.

I also like to get Angel Sammy’s email every week with his poem AND to read everyone else’s poems that they write to go with the photos he gives everyone to use as inspiration – it’s tons of fun.   So let’s see what Sammy wrote THIS week!

Hugs, Teddy


Poetry Corner Time

Hi friends.    Ready for some poetry?   Not just MINE but also YOURS.    We all wrote a poem to go with the photo I gave you last week right?   So let’s share.   If you wrote a poem just let us know in my comments with your link so we can visit you and read what you came up with.   Lots of fun to see what the photos I give you inspire.    I’ll start things off with the poem I wrote for the photo.

“The Big Night”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell    ©May 25, 2023


The prom is finally here 

Will you go with me dear?

We’ll dress in our best

And dance with the rest

I’ll give you a white rose

And try to avoid your toes!


Ah yes……some teens didn’t have a clue how to shuffle around the dance floor at Prom – they could jitterbug like crazy but formal dancing?   Maybe if they’d asked for a few lessons from Mom or Dad.    A special night – everyone looked forward to it like Christmas my Mom says.    Anyway, the photo shows a very sweet scene with memories being made.    

Now it’s time to show you the photo I have for all of us to use as inspiration NEXT Thursday for poetry day.    How’s this one??

Love those beautiful blue eyes!     So what does this photo inspire you to write in the way of a poem?   We’ll find out next week – hope you will write one and share it with us!

In the meantime, be happy, healthy and creative!

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

Love and Light, Angel Sammy

  1. Oh, Angel Sammy…Teddy, thank you for your poem. That was such a wonderful photograph. It’s too bad that the prom– where the students had that one evening to dress like and behave like the adults they almost were are gone and will never return. The anticipation was intense, the experience was a joy. Mom and I enjoyed the photo very much.


  2. Teddy, thanks fur sharing the email poem from Angel Sammy. He was one brilliant poet. And the picture is worth a thousand words. Lynn says she never wore such a cotillion gown to the prom. She’s jealous of the lovely debs. Me, I just wear my grey onesie and hope you like it. Precious


  3. Angel Sammy, when I first looked at this photo I didn’t even think about prom. I thought of the movie, It’s a Wonderful Life, when the dance floor opens up and the peeps fall in a swimming pool underneath. I enjoyed your poem and the photo. I enjoyed your thankful for outside time too! Your Mom and Dad won’t let you down on outside time.

  5. Some boys at those proms thought we girls were a tease, and we really had to watch what they did with their KNEES!
    Mama had dresses like those, but bigger hoop…arggggh.


  6. Another terrific poem from Angel Sammy. Our mom wanted to take dancing lessons when her friends in high school were all doing so, but her mom and dad wouldn’t let her. She finally got the opportunity when she went to college. She did write a poem:
    Teddy, we know you missed your mom and dad on Sunday, but our folks are thankful you let them borrow Mom Pam and Dad David. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, angel Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer, Kizmet, Audrey & Raleigh


  7. Next weeks picture must be how Olympic swimmers get started, LOL!!
    Your poem is special…I never went to any dances or proms…neither did my sister. We were not allowed…We were deprived, sigh…
    Here’s my poem:


    We love to dance
    It fills us with romance.
    Our gowns rustle and swirl
    As round and round we twirl.
    We feel quite happy,
    The music’s slow or snappy.
    Polkas, waltzes or Minuets,
    We’ve danced them all…
    With our partners, handsome and tall.
    Elegant and graceful,
    Ballroom dancing is delightful!


  8. It sounds like you’ve been really enjoying your thankful time this week Teddy, hooray! That was a good poem too. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  10. Parents always come back, as one wise Sunday school teacher used to tell her students when they’d cry. Since it always happened, the parents always came back, eventually they’d stop crying.

    Your parents will come back, they love you.

    I didn’t go to proms, i was lucky to dance at my own wedding, i’m just not good at it. I do like your poem.

    My poem is over here.


    • As usual here you are in my SPAM folder – makes me sad you go there instead of where you SHOULD be! But I love thinking about parents always coming back – and they did!! You are so wise Miss Mimi. We’re off to read your poem – better late than never!

      Love, Teddy


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