Limerick Challenge – Puddle Photo

Here is my contribution for Mind and Life Matters’ Limerick Challenge. This week we have a photo prompt to write a limerick about.

There once stood a girl in a puddle
Who was worried she’d get into trouble
‘Cos her shoes were soaked through
Jeans and anorak too
But once home all she got was a cuddle šŸ™‚

    That’s cute! šŸ™‚ (I would have received a strong reprimand for soggy shoes!)

      Yeah, soggy shoes are usually a no no šŸ™‚

    I guess there was no way to rhyme about a serious case of athlete’s foot…


    • September 20, 2016 at 12:02 pm

      Foot’s a tricky word to rhyme…

    I like it! Well done.

    I loved that! As a Mum, that is EXACTLY what I do. Plus warm clothes and some hot food.
    Great limerick. ā¤

    Love this one – great rhyme and rhythm. It also conjures up some nice images, as well as some fond memories of playing in puddles when I was little.

      I’m glad you liked it! I think everyone enjoyed jumping in puddles as little ones šŸ™‚
