Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

As I do every week, I have written a poem for Teddy and Angel Sammy’s poetry challenge. The inspiration photo and my poem are below.


First Haircut

Looking all grown up
With your first big boy haircut…
Maybe you will no longer be mistaken
For a girl without your head full of curls.
Do you recognize the toddler in the mirror
Or do you think it’s a new friend
Come to have his haircut too?
I will miss your childish look but will add
A lock of hair to your baby book.
I wish this milestone could somehow last.
As I know you will grow up much too fast.

Each Thursday, Mom Pam (Two Spoiled Cats) posts a photo to serve as inspiration for a poem to be posted on our blogs the following Thursday. If you haven’t tried writing poetry, it’s a great way to stretch your imagination. An excellent site to check out with guidelines for writing every type of poem is Shadow Poetry.

Check out next week’s inspiration photo by clicking on the badge at the left. Then look into Shadow Poetry and see if you can write a poem for next week.

While visiting Teddy and Angel Sammy, make certain you read Sammy’s poem. He transmits it to Teddy from the Rainbow Bridge, and it is always a winner. You’ll also find links in the Comments section to poems by other bloggers.

Thankful Thursday

Joining the Thankful Thursday blog hop hosted by Brian also is a weekly tradition. It’s a good way to remind oneself that even if our life is handing us some difficult challenges, we can always find something for which to be thankful.

Everyone in the Blue household is thankful for Sawyer currently being 16 days seizure free as well as for all those who pray for him and send POTP. And if you saw our post from yesterday, you already know Dad Tom and I are super thankful that our little guy is starting to trust us and is less standoffish and grumpy. It’s been a long time coming.

I am thankful this week that I was one of four first commenters on the Tuesday Teaser at Two Spoiled Cats. I shared the honors with three others, including Mom Sharon from our extended family at Friends Furever. We all received this cool badge.


Finally, as we are everyday, Kitties Blue and I are thankful for all our friends and followers.

If you’d like to join the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, post for what you are thankful on your blog and then click on Brian’s badge to enter your link on his post.


Thanks for stopping by to see us. We’ll be back tomorrow to join the Friendly Fill-Ins and Feline Friday blog hops.
