Poetic Thankful Thursday

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


Today's photo prompt is

Ballerinas

Beautiful and delicate and highly trained
They got there not without being pained.
Once upon a time
But way after her prime
Mom wished she could be
As talented and free.
To dance so lightly
And not even sway slightly.
A dream long gone
She'll never be the swan.


Today is also Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!


We're THANKFUL for lots of things but two special ones this week.  We were one of the First Commenters on the Tuesday Teaser at Two Spoiled Cats...


And we got a gift from our pals at Chewy!  It was a Summer gift package and had a hammock, a bowl and a dog toy.   Since we don't have any woofies now, we're going to share with one of our woofie friends.  

Hey...it's a gift from Chewy!

Thanks Chewy!  It was nice of you to think of us!!

to be the swan is a sweet dream, sadly the mama became only a duck... but well it's a berd too LOL

I always wanted to be a ballerina to, and in primary school when I was very young I was given the part of being a sugar plum fairy. I was forever after known as the Sugar Plump Fairy! Needless to say, my dreams were unrealised.
That was nice of Chewy to send a gift.

I don't think my human wanted to be a ballerina for more than a second as a child, but she loves to dance to this day... and she is actually fairly good at it.

My momma did ballet as a lil girl too - but she chose swimming instead.

We bet your Mom would make a lovely dancer. Ballet is very hard work, but it makes the body strong and healthy.
