and here is my attempt:

The other day I received a gift,

I thought would give me a much needed lift

but when opened, I saw

it was actually for next door

and Boy!, was I really miffed!

Snow – Haiku

The Word of the Day is SNOW, and I thought it was time for this post to have another airing. 🙂

Snow is falling now

Will it keep me trapped inside?

Or set my soul free?

Limerick Woes – A Playful Limerick and a Terrible Poem

I thought I would enter Chelsea Owens Terrible Poetry Contest, which this week is to write a Limerick:

Here is the link to her post:

The Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest 3/14 – 3/20/2020

I thought I’d try a Limerick,

It sounded fun, a lark, a kick,

but please take my advice

and always think twice

because now I’m feeling quite sick. 

 

This poem was written for the Word of the Day Word prompts: Limerick, Advice and Kick

Said the Kingpin to Miss Golightly

“you look dirty and rather unsightly

And It’s rather a strain

Seeing you again and again,

Why don’t you attempt bathing nightly?”

 

This Limerick was written in response to the following word prompts:

A Final Call – A Poem for Kira’s Sunday Scribbles

 

 

Of care and nurture, there is a dearth,

Though some instil some peace on earth,

But indecision from government’s elect,

May mean there’s not much Earth left to protect.

Amelia Rose’s Day – a little poem.

 

 

 

Dear Little Amelia Rose,

Tomorrow is your day

You’ll be the envy of all your friends,

But not in a jealous way.

You’ll have to sacrifice your usual fun,

To stay so neat and glistening,

Because scuffed knees are just not done,

When at your Christening.

This Haiku was inspired by this picture by Kira of Kira’s Sunday Scribbles, click on the link below to see the post:

You can’t live backwards

The past’s gone; You may as well

Try to catch the wind.

 

The picture also made me think of the following song:
