Thankful with Brian and Poetic with Angel Sammy Day!
We are joining up with Brian today even though we know their household is still mourning the loss of beautiful Sister Sascha. We are sad about that as well but will try to remember to be thankful that she knew love in her time with Brian and the rest of his family.
I’m also thankful that Mom and I are writing this post today TOGETHER – last week I had a blog post but only because Mom and I worked on it before she deserted me and went with Dad to Maine while I was at the kennel. I have to admit, I had it MADE at the kennel but I missed my home sweet home and I’m so THANKFUL that I have one!
Angel Sammy didn’t let me down on the poetry either – he transmitted his weekly offering via wi-fi at the Bridge last night. This week’s letter of the alphabet for the poetry challenge is the letter “T” and I can’t wait to see what he does with it – can you?
Greetings from the Rainbow Bridge Friends!
As you know, today we celebrate the letter “T” in our journey through the alphabet in our weekly poetry fun. There aren’t all that many letters left in the alphabet for us to get through – I’ve already been thinking about how to keep the poetry challenge going and I hope you will like my ideas. I’ll talk about those soon. MEANWHILE, please remember that when I give you some “Prompt Words” every week that doesn’t mean your poem has to be about one of them – – – they are just ideas to get your creativity flowing – you can come up with a poem about ANYTHING that starts with that week’s letter. These are the “idea words” I gave you last week for “T”:
(1) Tiger (2) Tummy (3) Tired (4) Travel
I didn’t use one of those though……………I used my own favorite “T” word……………I bet some of you can guess what that might be????

Ginger youngster so full of fun
He might be big but he sure can run!
He’s not even two and he’s twice my size
I hear we gingers can be pretty big guys!
We don’t really know how he wound up at the shelter
Sometimes the intake process is helter skelter…..
Mom knew he was special though in his little cage
When he was adopted his life began on a new page.
He’s had some challenges with his health so far
Which means trips to the vet in the “evil car” !!
He’s good as gold as the vet cares for him
They take blood, work on his ears, and sometimes call him “Slim” !
He’s 17 pounds of pure, sweet, loving
He loves Mom’s lap where he gets lots of hugging
I think if we’d been together we would have been best friends
Instead I’ll help him in his dreams until his story ends.
Yep – I bet you aren’t surprised that my “T” was my little brother. What a character he is. Mom loves it when Teddy is out in the front yard on his leash with Dad and she comes out the front door and calls his name…………..he looks at her from the bottom of the yard and Dad lets go of his leash and he runs like a little demon all the way up to Mom and hugs her legs. Know what’s funny? I used to do that VERY THING!
Did you write a poem today? If you did, please put your blog link in my comments so everyone can come visit your blog to read your poem today. I hope you have written one – it’s such a FUN thing to do and great way to express yourself……………poetry doesn’t even have to RHYME – it’s just you being YOU. There are so many forms of poetry……..GIVE IT A TRY! You can even post your poem in my comments if you don’t have a blog to post it in. LET’S ALL SHARE SOME WORDS AND FEELINGS WITH A POEM!
Well, time for me to go…………I am super busy here at the Rainbow Bridge. I have a lot of duties to perform including welcoming newcomers, teaching classes, and I’m even teaching the Bridge Chefs all kinds of recipes using my favorite thing – BACON! Before I go, here are your PROMPT WORDS (just ideas for you!) for next week’s poem – about ANYTHING starting with the letter “U”!
(1) Ugly (2) Under (3) Uncle (4) Until
SEE YOU NEXT WEEK MY FRIENDS!
Love, Angel Sammy, The Poet
