Intro Poetry, Day Five: Imperfect

Form: Limerick

My husband decided to buy a house,

To me it was uglier than a mouse.

The floors were dirty;

The walls weren’t pretty,

I still  couldn’t stop him from  buying the house.

Everyday Inspiration: Hook ‘Em With a Quote

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”__ Bernard M. Baruch

I try to be me all the time, regardless of what people think. I never hesitate to let my feelings known, it doesn’t matter what kind of  reaction I  get from people around me, I speak my mind; some may like it, others may not. I know no matter what I do or say I’ll never please everyone, therefore it is wise  not to  try.

It reminds me of a story I read about a man, his son and his donkey. He listened to all the people who passed him by, each group had a different opinion, he tried to do as he was told, in the end he lost his donkey.

These are stories that tell us we must not listen to other people’s opinion, if we do we’ll be a loser in the end.

Writing : Intro to Poetry, Day Four: Journey


A long road, running in to the horizon

Enhance your poem with a SIMILE

Our journey felt as warm as the morning sun

The further we went the clouds above spoiled our fun

Still we were optimistic it will change

But unfortunately the heavy clouds

Fell as rain like nature was dropping

Buckets of water.

It was a perfect transformation from

Dry to wet.

We kept our mind cool

Continued  driving like a fool.

But the nightmare continued as our

Car hit something heavy

The gas tank needle turned to empty.

We checked the map to find a gas station

Nothing to worry the man said

The impact bent your tank

We were not quite satisfied

Resumed driving until we reached

Our destination.

I told my husband you liked the color

lemon, well it proved it  really

is as sour as a lemon!
