Thoroughly Poetic Thursday




I absolutely love the fun and exuberance radiating from the youngsters in today’s inspiration photo. After scratching my head and having several false starts when it came to writing a poem, I ended up with a haiku.


on a sunny day
kids having fun at the park
slip slidin’ away


Thoroughly Poetic Thursday is hosted by our friends, Angel Sammy and Teddy, at Two Spoiled Cats. We always enjoy reading Sammy’s poem that he transmits each week from the Rainbow Bridge and discovering links to the poems of other bloggers, which are in the Comments.

Thankful Thursday

Today, I have a list of “gratefuls” to share.

I have

  • completed 350 rides on the Peloton;
  • fixed my personal e-mail account so I can send e-mail;
  • fixed The Cat on My Head account so I can delete e-mail;
  • updated my WordPress account with no ill-effects (so far) and finally,
  • The excavation for our addition is nearly complete. (The photo yesterday was from several days ago.)

I am most thankful, however, that with an increase in Sawyer’s new medication (and no additional decrease in the phenobarbital), he has gone a few days with no seizures.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by Brian. To join the hop, click on his badge below.

Way to go, Sawyer…keep up the good work!
Wish I could figure out why my old photo shows up when I comment on Brian’s Home blog via computer, but when I do it on my iPhone, the new art shows instead! Weird, but not sure if that’s Wordpress or what…

That was such a happy photo and your haiku was purrfect.

All good things to be thankful for but the last one is the BEST!

First thing that came into my head when I read your title was Paul Simon and his song of the same title! LOL! Cute picture and Haiku.

So happy to hear that Sawyer is doing well. Praying that it continues always. <3

Lots of thankfuls this week for you all…..very exciting that the excavation is almost complete…..! Love your haiku today – My memory of most playgrounds I’ve ever seen is of kids lined up to go down that slide…..something so exciting about sliding down. They don’t know yet that life just continues to “slip slide” away………

Hugs, Pam
