Poetry Thursday

It is Poetry Thursday once again

When Sam and Teddy challenge my brain

By giving me a photo to inspire me

Then writing it down for the world to see

I think back on my youth, those sun-filled days.

There were friends and many games to play

We would go on swings, climb on bars

Play astronaut and drive the race car

No matter what we played, we would declare a winner

Just before we all went home for dinner.

There was no pressure to win

And I was the best at a game called spin.

A dozen of us would stand on the horseless merry go round

The big kids would spin us, and our shouts made quite the sound

They were joyful shouts of glee

We would never again feel so free

I was best at spinning.

Which I always ended up winning

Not by who could stay on the longest

Or who could push the most and be declared the strongest

It was the furthest and not by time

But using an old clothesline

They measured how far from my playful comet

That I could projectile vomit.

Bishop Arrives at Rainbow Bridge

  The ground shook, the wind bent the trees, and a tremendous howl arose amongst the angels. It was clear that something big was crossing the river:  Czar Bishop had come to Rainbow Bridge. The Czar, son of Miss  Kimberli, brother to the legendary Apollo and Napa, had used every heartbeat and more as he fought to stay with his mom and continue teaching all the orphaned dogs that his mother took in and found new homes for them to live.  When word spread of Bishop's arrival, dogs came from every corner of the Bridge to pay homage to him and greet the incredible dog who inspired his mom to save many other dogs. Bishop also helped his mom create one of the most entertaining Facebook profiles. Transcribed were the conversations between Bishop and his mom ranging from the new students two what he needed at the store. Few dogs have been blessed with a bigger heart than Bishop. He had his collection of pets he doted
