Thoroughly Poetic and Thankful Thursday #82


Today is Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy at Two Spoiled Cats

Today's photo prompt is


Wild and fierce in the sea
A necessity from the tap
Terrifying if accompanied by hurricane force winds
Erie during a storm
Run fast if you see it this high

Thank you Brian for hosting


Long time readers know I have mad puppy love for Cody. Each time I see him I am thankful he brings a smile to my face and what a testament to keep on keeping on....

Saturday, August 13, about 7:45 am. He was resting his senior bones comfortably. I snapped this photo.  As I rounded the corner there he was......

Waiting for me on the sidewalk.  Bless he sweet heart he got up to greet me. I was so excited the photo is not in focus. 


  1. Cody is such a faithful friend and it's always good to see him on the blog, in focus or not!
    As for water, it seems to be something we either have too much of or not enough. Rain this week was welcome here in the UK after several unusually dry months. But rest assured we'll soon all be back to grumbling about the wet weather...
    Cheers, Gail.

  2. hello dear Cody... ave a super day.... we agree with you water is a reason to run LOL

  3. Hari OM
    Love your take on water...

    ...and how adorable is Cody?!! We have all grown very fond of him through you. YAM xx

  4. Cody is a lovely dog. When we have storms in the UK they always seem to use that photo. I think it is actually in Wales.

  5. Wow - that is quite the photo and your poem is perfect! Cody is such a sweetheart.

  6. Awwwwww, he's a sweetie. That picture of the water would be terrifying if I was one of those people

  7. I love this story about Cody. I would be in lurve too.

  8. I love Cody too and we have never met, butt I would love to... so sweet, he wants those pets and shared love. he is a beautiful dog. I drew a blank on that photo and yours works well with it. I sat and stared at it for a minute or two and could think of nothing to say at all except YOWSA

  9. Wild and fierce sure sums up that water, but not Cody, he is sweet and lovey! Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  10. Love the poem. I'd hate to be in that storm.

    Aw on Cody. He's most handsome and he loves seeing you as much as you love seeing him.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday, my friend. Big hug. ♥
