Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

On Thursdays, we like to join our friends, Teddy and Angel Sammy, and write a poem based on an inspiration photo they provide on the previous Thursday. This week’s photo is so darn cute. I wish I could have written a better poem to go with it. But sometimes the photo really doesn’t need any words, and I believe this is one of those. Regardless, my poem is below.




Cheeky Little Pony

Such a cheeky little pony…
What do you suppose he wants?
Some attention, a sugar cube?
He is more the young girl’s size
And just as cute as she is,
So why does she ignore him?
He’d surely offer her a ride
And hear her giggle with delight.
Maybe tomorrow she’ll show him
The affection he craves.

Thankful Thursday

Kitties Blue are thankful that the Roundup is past and won’t be revisited for another year. Everyone got a clean bill of health; though, Dr. Neel confirmed something Dad Tom and I suspected. Misty May is mostly deaf. For the past few months she has been much more vocal than usual. And her meowing has become increasingly louder and more demanding. She also is not responding when we call her name.

Here she is with Dr. Neel and tech Alexa.




I am grateful to have daffodils and tulips blooming with the dogwood trees beginning to bloom. But I am even happier and more thankful that the peonies and hostas we dug up and potted when construction began survived the winter and are healthy and growing like crazy!
