Thankful Thursday and Poetic Challenge ALL IN ONE!
First up – let’s talk about being THANKFUL! Every Thursday the blogosphere shares with each other some of the things that we are THANKFUL for – new things, old things, doesn’t matter – most of us have things we truly are thankful for and we’re no exception here at One Spoiled Cat! Thank you Brian for hosting this wonderful Blog Hop – if you want to join in – click his badge and visit him to use the LINK tool and you’re IN!
Mom is thankful that Angel Sammy sent me to his old shelter so my Mom and Dad would find me – I’m thankful HE did that and that THEY found me! Those are BIG thankfuls for me. Angel Sammy is thankful that when he arrived at the Rainbow Bridge it was everything he thought it would be and more. He has US here if he needs us and he has all his Angel friends THERE if he needs them and to do good works with since Angels work hard every day. Mom is thankful for many MANY things…….to have her health again, to be ALIVE and about to have her 70th birthday, to be married to my Dad for 27 years in a couple of weeks, to have ME (tee hee), to have a comfortable home and all the things she wants or needs……….fortunate? We all are. We’re THANKFUL.
I also received a BLOG AWARD from some friends this week but I’m going to write about that and follow the “rules” for the award in another post – but until then, we want to THANK our friends Hemingway and Steinbeck for nominating us for this award! You two are such good buddies and pals.
The second part of my blog post today is one I do WITH my Angel brother Sammy. This is the THIRD TIME to go through the alphabet here on the blog – can you believe it? We’re chugging our way through and have made it to the letter “J”…………….As you all know, Angel Sammy transmits HIS poem to me via his laptop computer and the Rainbow Wi-Fi link every Wednesday night so I can post it for you every Thursday morning! His way of keeping in touch with us all!
Here’s what I got from him last night:
Greetings From Paradise !
Hello Friends! Oh how I look forward to Thursday of every week so we can share our poetry with each other………….I write mine from my vantage point of the Rainbow Bridge, and you write yours from wherever you are………..and we enjoy each other’s thoughts. Remember if you decide to write a poem you can post it HERE in our blog comments OR you can give us in comments your blog link where we can zip off to read your words! Poems do not have to rhyme…….poems are thoughts we put together for the purpose of sharing and putting what we think or feel into words.
We are up to the letter “J” and I gave you four prompt words that you could choose to use one or more of but you can write about ANYTHING starting with the letter “J” !!! These were the prompts I gave you last week if you needed an inspiration:
(1) JUICY (2) JUMP (3) JUNGLE (4) JEALOUS
I’m using one of my prompts from last week – the word “JUNGLE”!

Cats all share one special feature
An “inner” soul of a fierce, wild creature!
Pretending we are stalking dangerous prey
We practice hard almost every day!
Among the houseplants or gardens we bungle
Pretending we’re tigers in our own private jungle
We sneak up on toys, food bowls or your TOES
Where we’ll attack nobody knows!
Our jungle can be among furniture or on beds
Or the blankets, sheets and pillows where you put your heads!
As long as we THINK that we cannot be seen
We stalk and have fun and try not to be MEAN
Our inner wild animal comes out as we play
Then we tuck it back inside to let loose the next day!
Now it’s YOUR turn! Write a poem – trust me – you will feel good sharing a thought or idea or feeling…………I do it every Thursday with all of you – give it a try! Now for NEXT week’s prompt words which might jump start your thoughts for a poem!
(1) KISS (2) KEY (3) KING (4) KINDLE
Good luck my friends and I’ll look forward to seeing you NEXT Thursday for Thoroughly Poetic Thursday with ME!!
I will love you all FOREVER, Angel Sammy
Thank you dear brother………………we’ll look forward to next Thursday and in the meantime everyone – why not take Angel Sammy’s suggestion and WRITE A POEM !!
