Thanks to my friend, Boney N, I have been doing a "Daily Challenge" since over a year ago. I started with the default track of "Emotional Well-being". Then I moved on to "Conquering Clutter" and now I am doing the "Pleasant Pauses" track which is really very pleasant.
Anyway, a couple of days ago, the daily challenge was to write a limerick.
How to do itA limerick is a five-line poem that follows a simple rhyming scheme: the first, second and fifth lines all rhyme, and the third and fourth lines both rhyme. Unlike other forms of poetry, all you need to write a limerick is a sense of humor. Need help getting started? Take a cue from Edward Lear, a nineteenth-century writer (whose very popular limericks weren't dirty or indecent!). His limericks typically began with, "There was an old man of ..." or "There was a young lady whose ..."
This was what I wrote...
There was an old lady from KL
and she tried like hell
to write this well
didn't follow the rule
but it's still cool!
I didn't expect to get any response but my friend, Lyn C wrote this comment:
This lady I know is not so old,
her heart is young
and she is full of fun
although, at times quite bold
I am told ;-)
and if that wasn't enough to warm my heart, another friend, Darrell C wrote this:
There was a young lady named Lita
It would be hard to find a lady more sweeta.
She posts pictures on FaceBook
That make me take a second look
Some of them knock me offa my feeta~ lol
I have to thank "Daily Challenge" for these wonderful people who fill my life with smiles.
