Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thursday #24

Today we join Two  SPOILED CAT 
Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.



There is today's photo prompt



Cloud formations fascinate me
I stare and I stare until the things I see
come forth to keep me company.
My mind's eye sees faces and sometimes places.
Each is embraced as a gift divine.
*******************************
What I see in this formation is the head and neck of a lady of the 18th century.
Her hair is in a bun (left side of photo). The sunbeams appear as blink on her long graceful neck.

Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thursday #23

Today we join Two  SPOILED CAT 
Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.


Today we did two poems...yes we are overachievers


#1
Little Blue
by Madi 

Little Blue this poem is dedicated to you.
Your welcoming lamp by the door
Makes me want to see more
Pretty white frame and windows galore.
If I lived in you, I'd have a perch up
on the second floor.
I'd stay there all the day long watching the birds
and the critters from my window seat.

#2
Tiny
by Mom
It is blue, white and tiny
Double wide it is not
Not even room for a trash bin.
Ten steps will take you from the stoop to its boot.
 A-shaped roof made of tin.
No thanks I don't wanna come in.

Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thursday #22

Today we join Two  SPOILED CAT 
Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.



Here is today's pictorial prompt



In another world, in another time earth was my home.
Me and my kind were free to roam.
Dinosaurs and all those other "saurs" and 'rexes galore.
Some of us stomped about and others soared.
We had a Smorgasbord on which to dine
Plants were plentiful, water flowed freely.
Then things changed we got greedy, the waters froze
the plants were gone. We were hungry, and thirsty
and became greedy we fought each other when we should'a loved
one another.  
Take heed friends only use what you need.

Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thursday #21

Today we join Two  SPOILED CAT 
Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.



Here is today's pictorial prompt

What I see
Wisdom....to behold
Eyes that have seen and learned
willing to share if only others cared.
Tales untold in each fold

A proud and honest face make no
mistake
Each crease earned with hard work
under the sun....
however, in his eyes I see a bit of 
mischief and fun.

Happy Birthday to Dad 2018

We are using 
The Snow Dogs of Lost Lake, by Dorothy Bodoin.****
**** Molly my AireDale gal pal and her mom have been sharing this most wonderful series of books by Ms. Bodoin with us for several months.

line 8
I glanced at my own house, no multicolored lights 

line 12
 I'd do some more decorating
line 16
my friend and neighbor.

This month we're trying a poem in honor of my sweet husband's birthday. 



Today is a special day you see
It is the birthday of the hubby of me.
As I took a walk down the drive way,
I was deep in thought about this day
I glanced at my own house, to surprise him
no multicolored lights would be on display.  
 I'd do some more decorating,
it would be simple and fresh just like Spring.
My friend and neighbor, is quite clever.  
Give her a theme or a favorite color
She will plan an event like no other.
While this may be true dear hubby of me,
I know your ideal birthday theme is low key
filled with Ice Cream (cake) sunshine,
no rain so you can ride the train.
Happy Happy Bday from me and your bonsai bunny Madi

Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thursday #20

Today we join Two  SPOILED CAT 
Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.



Here is today's pictorial prompt


Mystical Maybes

What I see as I look at this tree
Could easily be a mystery to thee.
My mind's eye is momentarily drawn to the light.
I asked myself if there life in the tree
Possibly there is more to see.
Maybe .....
A critter standing tall above us all. 
Maybe.....
His feet are planted firmly in mossy earth
His head is covered in multiple layers and shades of green.
His long snout stretched toward the moon.
Maybe....
You say it is neither a critter nor a light 
Maybe....
It is just a Tree

Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thursday#19

Today we join Two  SPOILED CAT 
Angel Sammy and Teddy for their poetic pictorial poem.


Today's prompt ....


If I were brave,
Up up and away I would like to
float in a hot air balloon 
Maybe I'd go to the moon.
I'd soar and I'd roar and be so excited
I might snort.......
BUT Never would I go

Sky diving
I am blessed to have a party in my head.
Wild dreams often come when I'm in bed.
The places I go in my mind's eye are full
of fun, adventure and glee.

Often there is scheming about all
 kinds of crazy and amazing things when I'm dreaming,

HOWEVER;

I promise you my friends
never in 87 million years would you see me
jumping freely  into the clear blue sky
from a perfectly good flying machine.'

Sincerely
The Old Gray Mare
