Thoroughly Poetic Thursday



Today’s inspiration photo brought up memories of childhood; though, I was a “goody two shoes” and never would have done what this youngster is doing. I’m more likely to do something uninhibited now, as I have no one to answer to but myself. I no longer need to worry about getting in trouble with my parents. As this photo needs no elaboration, my poem today is short…a haiku.


Lost childhood pleasures
Somewhere in my memory
Now recalled fondly


Thoroughly Poetic Thursday is hosted by Angel Sammy and Teddy (Two Spoiled Cats) with an inspiration photo provided by their mom. Angel Sammy is the master poet and sends his poem each week from the Bridge. It is always worth reading. To do so, as well as find links to other poems in the comments, click on his badge. If you have not participated previously, you also can find the inspirational photo for next week on today’s post.

Thankful Thursday

Sawyer had hoped to be here today with a good report on his blood work, but we have not heard anything as yet. Instead I am doing the thankful for strange bedfellows having a Doozy of a Snoozy. We are always thankful when our kingdom is peaceable.


Thankful Thursday: sawyer and Misty May


Dad Tom and I were shocked and amazed to see Misty May and Sawyer snuggled up together. We can’t say they are friends or enemies. They normally don’t interact at all.

Sawyer looks much bigger than Misty May here, but it is just the camera angle. They actually are just about the same size.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted by our friend, Brian. To join in, click on his badge.


Tomorrow we will participate in the Friendly Fill-Ins blog hop. And, paws crossed, Sawyer will be here with news about his vet visit and prognosis going forward.

Such a peaceful nap/snoozy!
Love that little Haiku. My unfurbros would have done exactly that splish splashing when they were wee ones, just because they knew it would get a reaction form petcretary! MOL! Especially unfurbro-the-younger…

The human’s mom was so protective she was not allowed to do something like this, but when she turned 13 or something, she rebelled a little and did this and played in the rain too, without the umbrella.

Purrfect poem! Mom was a goody two shoes too!

We love that photo. It’s always heartwarming when the furkids snuggle.

Your poem really hits the nail on the head. Images like this bring back so many fond childhood memories. And I just love the picture of Sawyer and Misty May. What a precious moment you captured! We are sending lots of purrs and prayers for good blood work results for Sawyer.

Lovely photo! Our cats love each other, they’re siblings, but they rarely cuddle. 🙂

Eastside Cats August 9, 2018 at 10:08 am

Misty May and Sawyer were having a snooze; how wonderful! Paws crossed that this leads to some more togetherness for them!

Brian Frum August 9, 2018 at 10:03 am

That is a very sweet poem and a very sweet photo. We’re still purring and praying for a good Sawyer report. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

Wonderful haiku – perfect for the photo! The photo of Misty May snuggling with Sawyer is precious….purrrhaps she sensed little Sawyer needed a bit of “mothering” since he’d been to the vet? It’s just SWEET………. Thank you for pawticipating in Angel Sammy’s poetic Thursdays – it’s such fun reading the poems.

Love, Teddy
