Mind and Life Matters, Limerick Challenge, Week,20 :Superstition
Clay Hamsa on a wall believed to protect inhabitants from harm.
I must not cut my nails in the evening
Warns my elders which sounds threatening
It is an unfounded fear
You’ll be penniless my dear
So why take a chance after knowing the meaning!
Thank you for this very interesting poem. Superstitions are everywhere, in every culture. It seems we humans will go to great lengths to keep away what we fear.
All good wishes,
Thank you so much for your comment. 🙂
The elders always seem to have a ‘logical’ explanation for their superstitions, dont they? 😀
Yes Rashmi, they certainly do and make us abide by it. Oh well, who wants to be penniless! 🙂
I enjoyed the rhythm and rhyme of your limerick. I enjoyed the content even more. I was not aware of this superstition. But I have my own. I knock on wood for good luck all the time. Thank you for this verse!
