Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

It’s that time again to share a poem with you. Each Thursday, our friends, Teddy and Angel Sammy (Two Spoiled Cats), share a photo to act as inspiration for a poem. Here’s the photo and my poem for this week.



Imagining Fairies

Do the fairies come to dance
When no humans are around
In this man-made garden?
If I am quiet and watch from afar
Will I see the bright light
From their wings at evening’s dusk
Or in the early morning mist?
Even if never seen, it is fun
To imagine their presence.
It makes the heart and mind
Dance with delight, much like a fairy.

Thankful Thursday

We are so thankful that with the help of Dr. Neel, we were finally able to get an appointment for Sawyer to have bloodwork done tomorrow to check his phenobarbital level. With Dr. Neel’s retirement and the coronavirus, it is impossible to get an appointment which saddens us very much. Of course, we will not be able to accompany him into the office. He is not a good patient, but Dr. Neel knew how to handle him. Please say a little prayer that everything goes okay.

I am getting to be a regular as a first commenter on the Tuesday Teaser at Two Spoiled Cats. Last week, I was the lone firstie. This week, I am sharing that honor with Timmy and Phenny. The reason I am thankful for this is that it means I know it is Tuesday on Tuesday! Since the virus, each day flows into the next with little to differentiate one from the other, so it’s always nice to actually know what day of the week it is. Once again, I got the cool badge on the left.

Dad Tom and I are particularly thankful that my nephew, who is a captain with CAL Fire, remains safe while fighting the fires near San Jose, California. A friend and her husband, who had to evacuate, are also safe.

Finally, we remain virus-free as do our friends and family.
