This week, for Poetic Thursday, our host, Pam and her ginger kitty boys at Two Spoiled Cats, threw us a curve. Rather than providing us with a photo for inspiration for our poem this week, they challenged each of us to choose a photo.
So I created a challenge of my own….not one photo and poem, but two! I had to write about my two favorite guys.
This is my first picture:
And my first poem:
Your First Car
Your car’s in the crib, and you can’t tell me why.
So I just have to laugh at my fun little guy
Your grin shows just how proud you are,
sitting there on your very first car.
Snack time, nap time, pick up toys;
never a dull moment for mamas of boys.
These days will fly by like leaves on the breeze,
but sweet memories are made of moments like these.
My second photo:
And my second poem:
You make me laugh, you make me smile;
together we’ve covered thousands of miles.
We find the fun in every day
in something we do or something we say.
A hat on your nose, that’s how this began,
and, just like that, I was laughing again.
