Thoroughly Poetic Thursday
Today we begin a new challenge for Angel Sammy’s Thoroughly Poetic Thursday at Two Spoiled Cats. After three rounds of using prompts from the alphabet, we now are challenged to write a poem inspired by a photo posted by Sammy and Teddy’s mom, Pam.
This is the photo Mom Pam posted last Thursday. It is followed by our poem.
The Day Kitties Blue Saved Christmas
As the nine of us hunkered down to wait for Santa,
the sky grew cloudy; we watched a huge storm brewing.
It was massive with turbulent mammatus clouds, and we
worried that Santa’s RPS* would not be working.
When a bolt of lightening caused our lights to flicker
all we could do was cross our paws, purr and pray
that Santa and his reindeer would come through okay.
We were certain he had faced similar conditions
in the four centuries he’d been delivering presents,
but still we feared for the reindeers’ and Santa’s safety.
We paced the floor, wondering how we could help when
the youngest of us, Sawyer, cleared his throat and meowed, “I
bet, if we turn on our lasers, we could guide him through.”
We were amazed the whippersnapper knew just what to do.
It’s his first Christmas, and we didn’t know he was a
smartypants. First we contacted all our fursibs at the
Rainbow Bridge: Skooter, Steamer, Daphne, Thelma, Louise,
Twinkle, Chloe, Madison, MacKenzie and Fiona
and had them gather. Together, they set their halos
to high and shone the light toward earth. Then we all grabbed
our antlers, turned on our high beams and directed our eyes
toward heaven. The dazzling glow caught Santa’s attention,
and he knew just where to fly, directing his reindeer
through the dense clouds and down to earth from the sky.
As he put gifts in our stockings, we asked our friends to do
the same, and that’s how Santa delivered gifts to all in 2017.

A few of us agreed to to have our photos taken in our antlers: Giulietta, Cooper Murphy and the elusive Misty May.
