Limerick Challenge – Dream

I thought I’d have another go at Mind and Life Matters’ Limerick challenge. This week’s word is “Dream“. I couldn’t get it to scan quite right, but here is my entry :-).

It’s good to have hopes and bigΒ dreams
Polish your life till it gleams
And if things go wrong
Try to burst into song
Think of kittens, ice cream and sunbeams!

I hope you enjoyed it! You can read other entries by clicking on the blue froggy.

    I just read this one on Twitter and it made me laugh:

    There was a young man
    From Hull who got limericks
    And haikus confused

    Great one, Ali! Kittens, ice cream and sunbeams are everyone’s dream πŸ™‚

    I liked that a lot, Draliman! Didn’t know you wrote limericks, but you seem a natural.

      Thanks! Limericks are quite fun to write, trying to get the rhyming and scanning right.

    LOL! That is cute, Ali! I love it!

    I did just what you recommended…. only the ice cream melted in the sunbeam, and then the kittens licked it up and got sick and puked all over my nice new rug.

      Great, now I’m trying to write a Limerick including “nightmares” rhyming with “falling down the stairs”…
      I’m glad you liked it!

    Lovely, Ali. Now I’ll know what to do when I feel depressed. I’ll think of those things: kittens, ice cream, and sunbeams. That’s great. πŸ˜€ — Suzanne

      There’s nothing happier than those three things πŸ™‚


  12. March 23, 2016 at 2:17 pm

    Such a happy message and limerick! πŸ™‚


  13. March 23, 2016 at 5:50 pm

    Sounds like a plan for happiness! Job well done!

      Thanks, kittens make nearly everyone smile πŸ™‚

    A lovely message in limerick form, Ali! Thoughts of kittens, ice cream and sunbeams always make me smile. πŸ˜€


  15. March 23, 2016 at 9:31 pm

    That’s if you like kittens, ice cream and sunbeams. Two out of three ain’t bad for me.


    • March 24, 2016 at 7:59 am

      Substitute the third one with a happy thought of your choice πŸ™‚

    Good limerick, a nice positive message πŸ™‚

      Thanks, I’m glad you liked it!

    Great advice in the form of a limerick! Ice cream and sunbeams yes, but I will think dogs instead of kittens πŸ˜€


    • March 26, 2016 at 11:17 am

      You can feel free to insert the happy thought of your choice! It would have to be “puppies” rather than “dogs” to make it scan though but that’s okay because everyone loves puppies πŸ™‚

    I like very much.

    “Think of kittens, ice cream and sunbeams!” The cutest!! I should write this on one of my post-its in the office. Hmm.. can I add chocolates, puppies, and plain tees? πŸ˜€


    • March 28, 2016 at 8:08 am

      You can add any of the things that make you smile πŸ™‚

    Hey, that was a great Limerick. It flows beautifully and has a nice chirpy, cheerful theme. Good advice, too, if we want a happy life. Love the last line. πŸ™‚

      Thanks! I don’t do many posts with happy happy joy joy in πŸ™‚
