Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

If it’s Thursday, that means it is poetry day. We are joining our good friends from Two Spoiled Cats, Teddy and Angel Sammy, who host this fun event. They provide an inspiration photo as the jumping off place for our imaginations and poems. This week’s photo, which was provided to the boys by Little Binky and her granny, is a doozy.

I had a difficult time writing a poem that does this photo blooper justice, and I know it’s not my best effort. Hope you enjoy it anyway.



Headline: Building Blows It’s Top

Looks like this building blew its top
Or did it grow gaseous and pop?
Can we put it together again
Or is that a dream we can’t attain?
The residents on the upper floors
Are stuck behind their closed doors
And must crawl out their windows.
If it can be put right, we’ll be heroes.
But I fear this building’s fate is sealed,
And it’s too far gone to be healed.

If you’d like to participate in the weekly poetry challenge, you can find the photo for next week over at Two Spoiled Cats. Just click on the badge above. While visiting, check out Angel Sammy’s poem. He transmits it to Teddy from the Rainbow Bridge. He writes incredibly terrific poems, and we know you’ll enjoy reading it. You will also find links to poems by other bloggers in the Comments section.

Thankful Thursday

Mau and Cooper Murphy are thankful to have completed all the requirements to graduate with honors from Cat Scout University. Dad Tom and I are super proud of them!










Mom is thankful she is finally getting to see two of her friends this week. This is the first time in four months she has seen any friends in person. She’s happy they all followed the rules and remained healthy, so they can now get together.

We all are thankful that our friends and family remain virus free. Please follow the guidelines of your state and the CDC and stay healthy. You are important to us.

I saw friends and family on the weekend, and today I visited the dentist!
Still want to be careful; hope the office lets us stay home for awhile longer.
