Thankful and Poetic Thursday


Hello everybody!    It’s THANKFUL Teddy here………….. Today I’m particularly thankful that we’ve had so much nice sun lately – EVEN though it’s COLD COLD COLD, it’s still sunny.   The ground isn’t as frosty as it was even a few weeks ago and now that it’s softened up a bit, I can roll around in the dirt and dig holes act like a dog which always makes my Mom laugh (until she has to clean me up before letting me back inside).    Mom said Angel Sammy liked to roll around in the dirt too.    I’m also thankful that we have lots of nice, new green VERY TASTY grass.   I am a grass muncher (also like Sammy) and I do enjoy grazing.

I’m thankful that Angel Sammy’s email with his poem and message for this week’s “THOROUGHLY POETIC THURSDAY” got through – it still amazes me how good the wi-fi connection is between here and the Rainbow Bridge!!!


Hello Poetry Fans!  

Just in case you’re stumbling across this blog for the first time and have no idea what we’re talking about – today is the day every week that we let our poetic scribblings fly free here.   I give all of you a photo to use as inspiration to write a poem then the following Thursday we SHARE and I let you read MY poem and enjoy yours!     You say you have never written a poem and don’t know how?   Well, I’m here to tell you that everyone can write a poem – it’s not scary – it doesn’t even have to rhyme – it’s just putting in words what you feel, think, see from the photo that I give you!    Fun and easy…….please give it a try some time.   If you have written a poem for this week, please let us know in comments so we can come read it.    I just LOVE reading your poems.

Here’s the photo you had for inspiration since last Thursday – you’ve had a week to write something – did you?   I did and my poem follows the photo below:

“Floating House”

Poem by Angel Sammy Kimmell      ©March 20, 2019

Imagine how fun to live on a boat

That lovely rocking as you gently float

But what about noise from tour boats on the fly?

What about noisy people late at night as they pass by?

What about gross stuff floating by your door?

What if the spot you chose turned out to be a bad place to moor?

You have to consider things from all sides

Houseboats aren’t like sailboats that ride the wind and glide.

They stay where they are put and you hope for the best

And hope every night you can get proper rest!!!


HAHA…….the romance of the water calls people all the time.   My Mom and Dad once went to a sailboat show and looked at some large and incredibly beautiful sailboats that were roomy and well designed and they felt they COULD live in it and sail too.   BUT there are huge expenses involved that people don’t often really think about – maintenance, mooring, fuel costs, are just a few of the things to be considered.   It is a VERY FUN thing to think about though…….and lots of people do own boats of all kinds and live on them quite happily for years and years.   My Mom and Dad decided to be “landlubbers”……but they both do enjoy getting on boats for tours and fun.    They’ve also taken some wonderful river cruises through Europe.    The sea calls to all of us maybe – some of you hear it louder than others and follow the siren’s call.    Remember to let us know if you wrote a poem for this photo!    Here’s next week’s photo – you have a week to think about/write your poem!

This one will be fun don’t you think?    I guess we’ll see how well we all do when we gather together here next Thursday.    Hope you have fun with this one………….C’mon – you can do it!

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

Love From The Bridge…………Angel Sammy


Thank you Angel Sammy………your brother Teddy
