Thoroughly Poetic Pictorial Thursday

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



There is today's photo prompt

By Madi
There once was a lady named Mom
In the mountains she did truly belong.
If she needed refreshin', 
it was the west she was headin'!
She takes deep clear breaths into her chest for a few days
Then home to her kitty she would scurry!!
The End


By Mom
This is a place where my mind's eye escapes
to join my heart in it's wildest desires.
A mountain girl I was meant to be
Alas here I am in the middle of NC.
The mountains call my name from day to day.
I heed their call as often as need be.
To sit there with such a view would surely bring me joy.
Each breath of fresh air filling my lungs and clearing my head
makes me appreciate each visit to the hills I've had over the years.
*********************************
Years ago we spent four days just about exactly like this photo.
It was called The Swag Country Inn, Waynesville, NC. It was extremely extravagant but worth every dollar.  The price included three huge gourmet meals a day, homemade cookies and coffee or tea available all day. And the most gracious hostess and staff ever. After leaving the main highway, you drove up a winding mountain road, 1 to 2 miles, it seemed like the road to no where you thought then a clearing you saw the most beautiful Inn ever.  Each morning after a huge breakfast we took a cup of coffee out to the back garden where there were chairs set up just like this.
Very early morning, before the sun rose,  all you could see was floating clouds.

The view was breathtaking.  


Speaking of Teddy, Angel Sammy and their mom...look what we won yesterday 

Madi and Mom Down Home In NC!


For Madi and Mom for their GUEST TEASER photo of June 5, 2018! Thank you!
We sent them this photo of the Governor's Mansion in Juneau, Alaska
Speedy the Rabbit and Clowie were the first two to guess where this picture was taken.

  2. Both poems are super duper - well done Madi and Mom! We here love mountains too. Ours in Scotland are not the highest, but we believe they are among the world's most beautiful. Ever considered a visit?
