Limerick Challenge – Tell Me a Story

November 22, 2016 43 comments

I’ve missed the last few weeks but I’ve managed to put together a limerick for Mind and Life Matters’ Limerick Challenge this week.

This week the theme is “Tell Me a Story!” To read all the limericks, click on the blue froggy.

 

I have a whole story to tell
To fit it all in will be hell
‘Cos five lines are too few
So you’ll have to make do
With me saying it all ended well.

Limerick Challenge – Seasons

September 29, 2016 41 comments

Here is my attempt at Mind And Life Matters’ limerick challenge for this week. The prompt word is “Seasons” and needs to feature all four seasons – in just five lines with all the rules limericks must adhere to – rhyming, scanning, line length…!

So I’ve ended up with one “dodgy” rhyme and a bit of slang. Oh well :-).

Click on the froggy for the linkup.

There are trysts in the Spring with a lover
And fun in the sun during Summer
But Autumn’s quite wet
And it’s quite a safe bet
Freezing Winter will be quite a bummer.

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 🙂

Limerick Challenge – Fairy Tale

September 5, 2016 31 comments

Here is my limerick for Mind and Life Matters’ Limerick Poetry Challenge. This week, the subject is “fairy tale”! I don’t know many fairy tales, but I have chosen “Hansel and Gretel”.

Click on the blue froggy for this week’s other submissions.

“My,” Hansel said, “that’s so neat.
It’s a house you can actually eat!”
But they soon hit a glitch
When they met a dark witch
Though in minutes they had the hag beat!

Limerick Challenge – Trust

September 2, 2016 36 comments

Here’s my limerick for Mind and Life Matters’ Limerick Poetry Challenge. This week we had to incorporate the word “trust” in the first, second or fifth lines.

I had a few ideas but none of them panned out, and I’m only just recovering from being poorly (yay antibiotics!) so here’s a limerick about not being able to write a limerick about “trust”.

I wanted to write about “trust”
But the whole thing turned out quite a bust
The words wouldn’t come
Now the deadline is done
So I’ll publish this, just ‘cos I must.

Limerick Challenge – Future

August 24, 2016 37 comments

Here is my contribution to Mind and Life Matters’ Limerick Poetry Challenge, which this week features the word “future”.

Click on the blue froggy for more!

If I could become future me
Just think of the wonders I’d see!
(Though I’d be very old
I could die from a cold)
So maybe I’ll just leave it be.

Limerick Challenge – Friendship

August 2, 2016 36 comments

Here is my limerick for Mind And Life Matters’ limerick challenge. This week the topic is “friendship”, and we can write a limerick about a friendship with any person, animal or thing!

When I read that I knew what to write about and had it written within a couple of minutes :-).

My bestie, I have to admit
(‘Cos for me it’s a marvellous fit)
Is my PlayStation 4!
You must think me a bore
Do I care? No I don’t, not a bit.
