Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

This week’s inspiration photo for Angel Sammy and Teddy’s poetry challenge is majestic in scale. Unfortunately my poem is not. In fact, it is just an itty bitty, title-less haiku. I apologize to our hosts for not doing better.


To a spectator
Obstacles may seem daunting
Or worth the challenge

To read Sammy’s poem, which is always inspired, click on his poetry badge. If you check out the comments, you will find links to the poems of other bloggers as well.

Thankful Thursday

The Cat on My Head has been added to two more “Best” Lists. We are happy to be included with many of our favorite blogs at  Best for Pets.

The second is Top 25 Pet Blogs 2018 at Stop the Fleas. Again many of our favorite blogs are on the list along with The Cat on My Head.

We are always happy to be honored in this way regardless of the sites’ motives. We feel every opportunity available for individuals to find and follow our blog is a good thing for us.

I do think that petcretary would find that wave way more than a daunting challenge…she would just drown in it…
Concats on your blogging honors, too.

That wave is quite daunting in our opinion. Nice haiku. 🙂

Concats on the awards, and that photo gives me the willies…am not a fan of deep water! Nice haiku!

I’ve always found haikus to be a very profound form of poetry, perhaps because of their concise nature. Your haiku is wonderful, if you ask me, and also very true. I find the thought of riding that wave very, very daunting.

And a huge concatulations on all of your accomplishments! Your blog is such a wonderful place to be.

Now that’s a perfect haiku for this totally insane photo! We knew when we saw the photo that it would bring some interesting poetry though. It’s scary just to look at this photo – imagine what the surfer is thinking/feeling! EEEK! Congratulations on being on two of the “BEST” lists. You totally deserve that and more!

Hugs, Teddy
