Thankful and Poetic Thursday


Woo Hoo!   Thursday already – time for us to be thankful “out loud” and also time to see what Angel Sammy has sent us for his Thursday Poetic Thursday post.    If you’d like to join in Brian’s Thankful Hop – click his badge above and link up.

Our thankfulness continues with Mom and Dad still feeling fine.    They are grateful that they ARE fine considering how widespread and “growing” the pandemic is.    Mom and Dad are doing all the right things though so hopefully they will stay safe until the day finally arrives that we are FREE of the worry.

We’re thankful as always too that Angel Sammy – who we know keeps an eye on us and always will – has sent us his weekly email containing his latest poem and a new photo for all of us to write a poem for NEXT week!!


“Happy Poetic Thursday!”

Here we are on another Thursday to talk poetry.    I hope you aren’t tired of the whole exercise of writing a poem a week based on a photo………I think it’s fun myself to have a “theme” for writing a poem.    I’ll continue doing it as long as some of you play along and enjoy writing a poem.    I love reading your poems!

Here’s the photo I gave you LAST Thursday to use for THIS Thursday’s poem…………with my poem following:

“Tempting Treats”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell        ©September 30, 2020

Oh my goodness an endless array of tempting treats

Who wouldn’t want to raid the shelves for something yummy to eat!

Chocolate, fruit, icing, filling and more

I wish my house was right next door!

Who could look at this display and not start to pant?

I can resist most temptations but this one I sure can’t!


Alright – confession time – I allowed my Mom to “influence” this poem as she has a very difficult time walking by something like dessert tray in a restaurant or a bakery without letting her eyes take in every little details and morsel…………and while MOST of the time she does “just walk on by” she sometimes allows herself a sinful little treasure to take home and enjoy.   Does she share with Dad?   Nope!    HAHAHA

Now – did you write a poem?   If you did, let us know – this was a fun one to put words to so I hope you wrote something even if it’s short and SWEET (haha) like mine is!     

Here’s your photo inspiration for NEXT Thursday’s poem…………hope you will join in the fun even if you haven’t ever written a poem before!

Yes indeed – it happens – all the time too.   Pups and cats getting along famously.     But there’s a lot of messages in a photo like this and it’s our job as poets to interpret the messages in poetic form – give it a whirl !!!

Until next Thursday when we share poems again – stay positive – stay healthy – and stay STRONG…………………

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

Love from Angel Sammy at the Rainbow Bridge


Thanks Angel Sammy……..I like that poem and I am SURE that if I had a chance to meet a puppy up close we could be BEST BUDDIES!

Hugs to everyone, Teddy
