Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Mau and Allie (Friends Furever) are here today to welcome you to our poetry “trip.” I’ve altered the inspiration photo just a tad to enhance the theme of our poem. Hope you enjoy it.


Magic Mau & Allie


Magical Memories

This is a “Magic Bus”
But not the one of
Which The Who sang.
Our bus is a time machine
More Like Steppenwolf’s
“Magic Carpet Ride” or The
Beatles’ “Magical Mystery Tour.”
It’ll transport you to the ‘60s.
Inside you’ll find hippies
And flower children and
Concerts of grand proportion.
The Mamas and Papas are
Singing “California Dreamin’,”
And The Beach Boys are rocking
Out “California Girls” while
Scott McKenzie shares his
“San Francisco” vibe. John
Sebastian and the The Lovin’
Spoonful ask “Do You Believe
in Magic?” It’s all right
Here if you’d like a “trip”
Down memory lane. We’ll stop
At The Fillmore Auditorium,
And then magically transport
To the Monterey Pop Festival,
And on to the infamous Woodstock.
Those were the good old days.
Come along and enjoy them with us.

This really is a meander down memory lane for me. Dad Tom and I were both in high school and college in the 60s in California. We were both lucky enough to see most of the biggest names in Rock ‘n Roll at the time. And Dad Tom even had a VW bus before I met him. It was not, however, “magical” like this one.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday was created by our friend, angel Sammy (Two Spoiled Cats), before he went to the Bridge. He continues to send a poem from the Bridge each Thursday, and we join in the fun when we can. To participate click on his badge. You can write your poem into a Comment or leave a link to your post. Don’t forget to read Sammy’s poem while you are there. It is always fabulous!

Thankful Thursday

Every Thursday we also join the Thankful Thursday blog hop, hosted by Brian. We are thankful we’ve had some rain and that we are having some lower temperatures. Dad Tom and I are super grateful that a building permit has been obtained for our addition. Now we are hoping for excavation and construction to be started soon. Finally, though Sawyer has been spitting out his pills so he can get some extra stinky goodness at each meal), he is doing better physically. He’s only had one itty bitty incident this past week.

To participate in the hop, post for what you are thankful and then click on Brian’s badge.
