Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
This is the day when I like to participate in the poetry challenge at Two Spoiled Cats. They provide us with an inspiration photo, and along with Angel Sammy, participants write and share a poem. Here’s this week’s inspiration photo, with a very small addition, followed by a tongue-in-cheek poem from Stinky.
Periwinkle The Brave
This really doesn’t look like fun.
Can we please just lie in the sun?
Then we can wade up to our knees
and enjoy this delightful breeze.
Perhaps you would reconsider?
I’m frightened I’ll fall in the river.
What if my life vest doesn’t inflate?
As a swimmer I’m not that great.
I guess I’m really not one for adventure,
especially one involving danger.
If you want to go, I’ll wait here
and when you paddle by give a cheer!
As I can now plainly see…
you are much braver than me.

Each week Angel Sammy transmits his poem from the Rainbow Bridge to Teddy for publication. Sammy writes amazing poetry, which is always worth reading. Please stop over to Two Spoiled Cats, by clicking on the poetry badge, to check out Sammy’s poem and get the photo for next week’s challenge.
I always look forward to the opportunity to share Kitties Blue and my thankfuls with you.
I am not certain the kitties agree, but Dad Tom and I are super thankful that the bird brain cardinal has moved on.
This week I was the First Right Guesser on the Two Spoiled Cats‘ Tuesday Teaser. That is a very rare occurrence. I received this badge.
We have signs of spring popping up in the yard. A patch of small lilac flowers from bulbs I planted on Giulietta’s grave in fall of 2022 are blooming and some purple crocus. Several daffodils will be opening soon. I will try to get Dad Tom to take some photos when it stops raining.
Stinky is thankful I am making some progress on the landing page which will give our readers easy access to all The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky.
As always, Kitties Blue and I are thankful for everyone who visits our blog, comments and joins our Sunday Selfies blog hop. Don’t forget that this Sunday will be a special hop dedicated to Dr. Seuss. You can find frames to use for your selfie photos (if you like) here.
The Kitties Blue and I will be participating in the Thankful Thursday blog hop hosted by Angel Brian. Click on the badge below to join in the hop.
Thanks for stopping by today. We hope to see you again tomorrow for Friendly Fill-Ins and Feline Friday.
