Thankful Thursday

Kizmet is always thankful for warm clothes no matter how hot it is outside. She knows I never close the dryer or washer without checking inside, so she never worries about crawling in.




Stinky & Periwinkle are delighted and thankful to have a few more followers than they did when they began their adventures. If you missed this week’s, they helped Cookie Monster celebrate his birthday. You can check out that adventure here.

We are all thankful and blessed to have so many blogging friends. You keep us going from day to day.

Thankful Thursday is a blog hop hosted each week by Brian. To participate, post on your blog for what you are thankful and then click on the badge below to jump over to Brian’s Home.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday

Thursday also is the day when I try to write a poem for Teddy and Angel Sammy’s poetry challenge based on an inspiration photo they provide. Here’s this week’s photo and my poem.



The Lady in the Red Dress

A photographer obviously staged this scene,
But what can it possibly mean?
A non-functioning radio on the beach,
Any possible signal out of reach.
A lady in high heels and red dress
Unconcerned about a sandy mess,
Intent upon the distant shore,
As if expecting something more.
Maybe a loved one who has been at sea.
What else could it possibly be?
I could guess or prognosticate
What will be this woman’s fate,
But the question is one not to be debated,
The scene most surely was orchestrated.

If you’d like to try writing some poetry, you can find next week’s photo over at Two Spoiled Cats by clicking on the poetry badge. While there, please check out Angel Sammy’s poem. He transmits it to Teddy each week from the Rainbow Bridge, and it is always thoughtful and well-crafted.

As always, thanks for joining us.
