Esther Chilton has posted a challenge to write a limerick with the word GIFT.
Click on the link to her post below to take part in her challenge:
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!

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?

There is no greater thief than time
it takes from us our very breath
while we whittle away those moments sublime,
we’re one step closer still to death.

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:

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.

Clears hearts and minds; for Gratis

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:
I have also included the following Word Prompt:
When you’re in a fog
Your Instinct will see you through
trust your spirit guide.
