Laugh Along with a Limerick – An Artful Sketch

Esther Chilton on her blog has set a challenge to write a Limerick containing the word Crush. Click on the link below to see her post and take part in the challenge.

Here is my attempt:

On my art teacher, I had a slight Crush

He asked to see what I’d drawn in a rush.  

So, I showed him my sketches

But men are such wretches!

What he said just made me quite blush!

I also wanted to include the Word of the Day: Sketches


A Multiple Word Prompt poem – The Art of Writing.


To create a good story is a fine art,

You must balance the drama or it just falls apart,

You need a location, on a mountain, by a tree,

Somewhere exciting where readers want to be.

It must have a good character, an imp or an elf,

And if you are lucky it just writes itself.

(Though more often than not it’s like walking on glass,

Writing a story can be a right pain in the 
.. neck*). 😉

Favourite Flags of the World – Just a bit of fun.

This is a list of my favourite flags, this is just my opinion based on the colours and design of the actual flag and not a reflection of my views of the actual country, region or people they represent.

I regard flags as a form of art, in its simplest form.

  1. United KingdomFlag of United Kingdom
  2. Iceland Flag of Iceland
  3. Dominican Republic Flag of Dominican Republic
  4. Australia Flag of Australia
  5. Lebanon Flag of Lebanon
  6. Bhutan   Flag of Bhutan
  7. Moldova Flag of Moldova
  8. Uruguay Flag of Uruguay
  9. New Zealand Flag of New Zealand
  10. The Isle of Man

Well, the Isle of Man is part of the UK, but the flag is pretty great don’t you think?

I hope you have not been offended if I haven’t chosen your nations flag, it is purely my opinion and based on aesthetics or quirkiness alone.

Is there a flag of a region or country that you like, that isn’t your own? Let me know in the comments.

I have updated this post because FLAG is the Ragtag Daily Prompt word of the day.
