Thankful and Thoroughly Poetic Thursday


Time to be THANKFUL and Poetic too!

Happy Thursday everyone.    Time for us to gather together and celebrate the things we’re THANKFUL for – this is a Hop hosted by Brian and you can join us if you like – just click on their badge above and hook up!

What am I thankful for?   Well this week it’s something that hasn’t even happened yet – I’m thankful for my Mom and Dad celebrating their 28th anniversary on Saturday (otherwise I wouldn’t have my home with them!) AND I’m also thankful that this weekend our temperatures are going to drop TWENTY DEGREES from the unbelievably hot weather we’ve had.   I can’t wait for a little touch of Fall.    It will be in the low 70s but that’s well over 20 degrees cooler than it’s been for weeks and weeks.    So those are my TWO Thankfuls – oh – and I’m also thankful for you Brian and that you give us a chance to be thankful on your Hop!

Angel Sammy sent me the following email – his poem for this week AND a new photo for NEXT week.   If you haven’t tried writing a poem to play along with all of us, please give it a try!


Greetings from the Bridge!!

It’s time for us to gather together and read each other’s poetry based on last week’s photo I provided.   I hope you’re finding this as much fun as I am.   It’s a rather informal little “Hop” we do – we don’t fill out a linky form or anything – just mention in comments here on the blog that you wrote a poem and give us your blog link ORRRRRR you can write your poem in our comments.    Easy huh?   It is fun to use a photo as inspiration – every week I try to give you one that will be INTERESTING to use as inspiration to write your poem.

Here’s the photo I gave you for today’s poem……………….followed by MY humble offering for Poetic Thursday.

“Giggles Galore”

By Angel Sammy Kimmell     September 6, 2018


Laughter echoes across the ground

Children’s laughs heard for miles around!

Slides and swings and monkey bars galore

Parallel bars are fun until your hands get sore!

Boundless energy and endless giggles

So much energy their bodies just wiggle!

Nothing sounds as happy as children at play

No matter where or what time of day

When we get older we remember those times

Of playgrounds and dress up and nursery rhymes

Stresses of work and life drive us wild

We miss seeing life through the eyes of a child………..


One thing about us cats is that we are sort of “perpetual children” in a way.   We pretty much are “up” for playing no matter what our age is – only our old bodies and aching bones and joints eventually slow us down – but if you think about it – isn’t that true for humans too?

Anyway, I loved the photo for this week – and had fun crafting my poem………………….I hope you did too!     I think I found a good one for NEXT week’s poem……..here’s your photo inspiration!

So see what you can do with that photo as inspiration for writing a poem to share with all of us next Thursday when we next get together OK?   OK!  It’s a deal!    Until then, remember we Angels are watching out for you 24/7.   It’s what we do.    And we LOVE our “work” !!!

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

Love Forever, Angel Sammy



Thanks Angel Sammy!    Your poem this week makes me happy.    Mom has said before that you were a “kitten” until you were too sick not to be any longer…………I’m going to do the SAME THING!   You are my inspiration – always.

Love, Teddy

Thankful and Poetic Thursday


Time for the THANKFUL THURSDAY Hop, hosted by my friend Brian.   We get together via the Hop on Thursdays and talk about how thankful we are for WHATEVER – if you think about it, I know that we ALL have things we’re thankful for.   If you’d like to join in the Hop – click Brian’s badge above and join in.

I don’t have a specific thing to be thankful for this week but I do believe in expressing my thankfulness every single day.   Mom and I have quiet time in the morning together before Dad gets up and one of the things we always do is say a little prayer of thanks for BEING HERE and having a quiet and peaceful life in a comfy home with friends and family.   It’s easy to take things like that for granted.   We hope we NEVER EVER do that.

I’m also thankful that my Angel brother Sammy got through with his wi-fi connection to transmit his Thursday poem to us!    A Thursday without poetry from him AND without reading everyone else’s photo challenge poetry just wouldn’t be as fun!

Here’s what I got from Sammy overnight……….


Hello everyone………it’s Thursday again and time to share some poetry.   I hope you decided to participate this week whether you’ve written a poem before or not.   It’s a fun thing to do and I try to make it a challenge by giving you a photo every week to use as “inspiration” for your poetry!    So far everyone who is writing a poem is doing an amazing job.    We have some REAL poets out there in blog land and happily some of them are our blog followers. 

So, in case you need to see last week’s photo that I gave you to write a poem from, here it is again, followed by my poem.

“Cat Pals”

by Angel Sammy Kimmell    May 31, 2018


Buddies and pals can be quite fun

Having two or three can be more fun than ONE

Someone to play with, or sleep with or cuddle

It’s hard to play football when you’re alone in the huddle!

If something goes wrong, your pal can be there

They can give reassurance, or comb out your hair!

Or clean out your ears, or lick food off your face

Pals don’t want their friends to look like a disgrace!

But some animals are fine being the one and only

If you’ve always been “just one” then you can’t feel lonely

If our humans play with us and talk to us and stuff

Being on our own in the household is not really tough!

We get all the attention, all the treats, all the toys

We can be just as happy, and just as full of real joy

But if one day my humans decide to get me a pet

You’d better believe it’s a CAT they would get !  


My Dad was always a dog guy before he met my Mom…………Mom quickly converted him to a cat guy………..and I have to say, both Teddy and I are happy that happened !!

SO, I bet you’re anxious to see the photo that I have for you for NEXT week – but I have to say first that I’m hoping you wrote a poem for TODAY with the kitty photo.  Did you?  If so, tell us in comments and give us your blog link so we can READ it OR if you want, write your poem in our comments to share.  

Here’s your challenge photo for NEXT Thursday!

This will be a fun one don’t you think?????   We’ll share what we all come up with next Thursday.   Until then, I will remind you that I am THANKFUL you are our friends.   I’m also THANKFUL if you take up the challenge to express your creativity with a poem – I can promise you it’s not as hard as you might think it is.   

Until next week, I’m sending you all Heavenly Hugs from the Rainbow Bridge…………….

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

Hugs, Angel Sammy



Well I can’t top that – so I will just say – see you next Thursday for Thankful and Poetic Thursday!

Love, Teddy
