Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

It is Thursday, which means it is time to write a poem for the Two Spoiled Cats, Teddy And Angel Sammy’s, poetry challenge. They provide an inspiration photo, and participants use it as the subject or jumping off place for a poem.

The yummy-looking photo and my poem are below. Being let loose in this point and able to order and eat whatever I want would be a dream come true.



A Delicious Display

What totally lucious treats—
I think I’d like at least one of each.
I have a sweet tooth, that is true,
So having one dessert just won’t do.
I think, in fact, I’ll skip my entreé
And have you bring me an entire tray
Of brownies, eclairs and lemon tarts,
Plus some Linzer cookies with the hearts,
One coconut cake and a pecan pie
Then I’ll let you know what catches my eye.
With desserts as far as one can see—
Oh what a great day I predict this will be!

In addition to providing the inspiration photo, Angel Sammy writes a poem each week and transmits it to Teddy from the Rainbow Bridge. He is a masterful poet, so please drop my Two Spoiled Cats, by clicking on the badge above, to read his poem.

Thankful Thursday

Thursday also is when we join the Thankful Thursday blog hop hosted by Brian. To participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful, then click on Brian’s badge to go to his blog and enter the link to yours.

My biggest fear has always been fire. While growing up in California, I remember many fires, but nothing like we see now. I am honestly thankful that we no longer live there. Worry about friends and family is stressful enough. So far, everyone is okay (including my friend who had to evacuate) for which I am thankful.

I am also thankful we remain virus free, and to my knowledge all our friends and family remain healthy.

Finally, I am thankful to have been one of four First Commenters on the Tuesday Teaser at Two Spoiled Cats. I won this cool badge.
