Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Each Thursday, Kitties Blue and I enjoy joining our friends, Teddy and Angel Sammy, in their poetry challenge. Once in a while we go off script and alter the photo just a tad, which is what occurred his week. Sawyer not only “jumped” into the photo but also wrote the poem.



Jumpin’ Around

Mom thought this would be a fun pastime for me,
So I could burn off some excess energy.
She thought I might then leave Calista Jo alone,
As she isn’t going to play no matter how I fuss or groan.
But this definitely isn’t as easy as it looks.
These girls only have two feet; I have four meat hooks.*
It’s easy to get tangled in those ropes and be catapulted to the sky—
Never knowing if I’ll come down or have a chance to say good-bye.
Maybe one of the girls will hold me while she jumps.
No worries about landing on my head and getting a big lump.
I probably should stay on the sideline and avoid being kicked.
Maybe I’ll just hop around on my pogo stick!

∗ meat hooks – Kitties Blue earned this name for their paws when Kitty Blue #2, Steamer,
snagged a pork chop off my plate with her claws.

If you’d like to write a poem for next week, pop on over to Two Spoiled Cats by clicking on the poetry badge. You’ll find next week’s inspiration photo. While there, make certain to read Angel Sammy’s poem. He transmits it to Teddy from the Rainbow Bring, and it’s always a winner. Also check out the Comments section for links to other poems.

Thankful Thursday

Not only do we write a poem each Thursday, but Kitties Blue and I also join the blog hop hosted by Brian and let you know for what we are thankful.

This week, we are grateful for the great participation in our Sunday Selfies blog hop.

Mom and Dad and Sawyer are thankful the seizure Sawyer had Tuesday night was only a focal one.

Mom was delighted to earn a “Right Guesser” badge on the Tuesday Teaser.

Each and every day, we are thankful for all our friends, followers and supporters.
