Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Angel Sammy and Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats) gave us a really fun photo for inspiration this week. It lent itself purrfectly to adding one of the Kitties Blue. And Cooper Murphy got the nod. In addition to adding Coop atop the trunk of the auto, I did crop the photo down a bit so the images could be larger.


Periwinkle Misfit: A ginger tabby cat lying on the trunk of a car as people try to put a big bed inside the car.



This is a misfit…no way around it!
Like putting a square peg in a round hole,
these humans should know that bed won’t go
inside the car without sawing it in half.
And what would be the sense of that?
Moving can be a gigantic pain
especially if one doesn’t use their brain.
I believe I’ll just lie here and giggle
while they continue to try and wiggle
the giant bed into their vehicle.
But, on second thought, I think I’ll snooze,
as I am no longer amused.
And, this is a challenge they’ll definitely lose!

If you have never written poetry, why not give it a whirl. Pop on over to Two Spoiled Cats by clicking on the poetry badge. There, you will find next week’s inspiration photo. While visiting, please read Angel Sammy’s poem. He transmits it from the Rainbow Bridge to Teddy for publication. He is a terrific poet, and his weekly creation is always worth reading.

Thankful Thursday

Thursday is not only poetry day but also thankful day. This is a blog hop that’s been hosted by the wonderful cat, Brian. Sadly, Brian left us a few days ago for the Rainbow Bridge and is now an angel. We’ve known Brian since we first started blogging. All the Kitties Blue and I are super thankful that Dad Terry shared him with all of us. We love him and will never forget him. On Sunday, we will remember Brian on our selfies blog hop.

Sawyer is thankful for the 350 tiny periwinkles which were planted in the yard yesterday. He cannot wait until they grow big enough for him to pick bouquets for Periwinkle. I am thankful I’m not the one who had to do the planting.

I am, however, thankful that I have been able to get more of my bulbs in the ground as well as some additional irises. I’ll be back at it again tomorrow.
