Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Writing poetry is fun. That’s why we join Two Spoiled Cats, Teddy and Angel Sammy’s, poetry challenge each Thursday. They provide an inspiration photo, and participants write a poem based on the photo.

Last week, when Stinky and Periwinkle met for The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky, they wrote limericks. They had a blast, so I decided to make my poem a limerick this week.

Here is today’s photo and my limerick.

A couple was on vacation
When beset with total exhaustion.
Their tiredness overlooked,
A gondola ride they booked.
They slept the entire duration.

I loved this photo. The expression on the gondolier’s face is priceless. And I can relate: I have become so tired on some vacations that I needed a vacation when I got home.

Thankful Thursday

Dad Tom and I are thankful for all the good wishes we received  for our anniversary both here and on Tom’s Facebook page.

Sawyer, Dad Tom and I are thankful Sawyer has not had a seizure since last Thursday. This is the longest time between seizures in a very long time. As always, I am praying that mentoring this does not jinx him. We continue to be grateful for all the prayers and POTP.

Finally we are happy and thankful we have not floated away, with the flooding from six inches of rain we have had from the storm stalled over us. We still have more than 24 hours of heavy rain ahead of us. Yikes!

Nothing for Kitties Blue to do but nap, as demonstrated by Sawyer and Calista Jo.
