Writing 201:Poetry – Limerick

Day 2 – Limerick

Well here is my attempt at the limerick;

There once was challenge to rhyme,
It was difficult to find the right time.
So instead he proceeded
To write something unneeded,
And in fact he successfully rhymed.

Short and sweet.


Writing 201: Poetry

Dear Reader

Writing 201: Poetry

I have recently taken up an interesting challenge, writing poetry. This is has daily assignments, not all will be published here as it will take too much time. I may post a weekly list  Here is my first attempt, it is a Haiku about water, enjoy.


Vitally flowing

Colours clear to poison black

Hope given to life

A challenge – 140 character poem

Dear Readers and maybe poets,

This morning I managed to write a short poem in 140 characters (actually less). Now I know that many haiku’s can be written in 140 characters but this was a quick 4 line poem. So I decided to post it here as a challenge. It’s just a bit of fun to try. Why did I write this? Well the washing machine we have makes a darn tune when it finishes and it does remind me of what the late great Douglas Adams might be thinking. Remember Marvin? This washing machine is just to cheerful to make sure you know it’s done. Hence the poem. So here it is enjoy and see;


Is this the shape of things to come

A washing machine that sings and hums

Douglas would be laughing now

As we are tortured by this row
