Online Vanishing

I Wish My Mind Looked Like That

Since my mind isn’t frightfully clear,
And I listen to less than I hear,
And this limerick’s got
Nary reason nor plot,
If I post it will it disappear?


Linked to dVerse where I am hosting today and the prompt is to write a limerick.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

    1. One of the nice things about limericks is that they are short. Still I had to make that recording twice. When I think too much I get confused although sometimes I am entertained for a while. Humor, however, is best. Thanks, Glenn!

    1. We do need an example of a serious limerick. Maybe this would work. It also has a title.

      Breakfast at the Outdoor Cafe

      She brings coffee and croissants to eat
      While fat pigeons peck food at my feet
      Seeking crumbs out of love
      I might drop from above
      As I search for her smile when we greet.

      2. If you have an ancestor who was from Limerick, that counts, too. As far as I’m concerned, any five lines will do. That your grandfather was a priest as well is interesting. It may be worth writing some poetry or a story about him.

  2. Oh, crap…my secret’s out. This is me, checking back 10 times after posting something, to make sure it’s still there and I got it right. First it made me grin, then I had these second thoughts. Embarrassing.
