The prompt for this week’s Limerick Poetry Challenge at Mind and Life Matters is ‘Immortal’. This word or an appropriate synonym must appear in the poem. That gave me a slight problem in realising the need to completely rework my second line. My use of the prompt word ‘immortal’ might not quite have fit the bill as it was – not that I’m after the grand prize myself 🙂 So, I managed to include a synonym just in case my ‘immortal’ was lacking and I ended up with an improved version compared to my original draft. 🙂 Yay!
I found this fitting image (below) on pixabay.com – my limerick is below the pic 🙂 Enjoy!
There once wished a happy old couple
endless life but that wish burst their bubble –
He forgot his wife’s T,
left with immoral, she
yelled “to hell with ya and on the double!”
This was supposed to be one of responses to post forRashmi’s Limerick Challenge #2, with the prompt BLISS – I also thought it fit the final writing201:poetry theme prompt ‘pleasure’ too. Having drafted this last weekend, I’m very late posting. Writing201 finished last week and the new Limerick prompt will have been announced yesterday. I just can’t keep up with things at the moment. I also wanted to find one of my pics to go with this and haven’t even looked for it yet, anyway, here’s my BLISS limerick:
Before the tide upon sandy swathed shores
Lapping up foaming waves soon procures
Intuitive rhythms and
Subtle life givens
So indelible memory endures
I had a thing for Limericks last weekend and wrote quite a lot of verses in Limerick form. To compensate for not writing to all the daily poetry assignments I wrote a Limerick verse for each day’s theme prompt. I’m typing that to a page as it’s so long…
