Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

We’re back again today to join Angel Sammy and Teddy in writing a bit of poetry. Sammy transmits an always fantastic poem from the Rainbow Bridge and invites his friends to join in the fun. For a long time we used the letters of the alphabet for our prompts. Now Mom Pam provides a photo each week to stimulate our imaginations. The photo this week is sort of silly and so is our poem. We added a caption to the photo as well.

If you enjoy writing and/or reading poetry, drop in at Two Spoiled Cats (click on their badge) to find links to other poems in the comments.


Monkey Business

Darn…I think I overexposed this!


Opposable Thumbs Up

Humans take photos when they visit the zoo,
As it turns out monkeys take photos too.
Do you think they find humans intriguing
Or is their interest merely fleeting?
They probably think our looks are absurd,
As our bodies are not totally furred.
Perhaps they’re interested in anthropogenesis
And wonder if humans are related to the Rhesus.
Or perhaps it’s just the camera this monkey appreciates,
And he could care less if he and humans relate,
Though 93 percent of our DNA is the same,
Being your relative he probably won’t claim.
But both of you can take all the photos you wish,
As you have opposable thumbs, unlike fish!

Thankful Thursday

Even though the cold weather has returned along with the eye “icks” to Misty May and Mau, we have a thankful today. We are thankful to have a little color in our otherwise winter drab yard. Daffodils, forsythia and quince are blooming. Now we know for certain that spring is coming. We’ll really be thankful when the temperatures catch up.
