The Joys Of Winter

There’s nothing quite like a tough mental challenge.  And I sure had a good time with this one, prompting me to write something (in my case, a limerick) using these three words: phone, stumbled and windy.

The Joys Of Winter
By Madeleine Begun Kane

It was windy and snowy.  I stumbled.
Then I fell and my keys and phone tumbled
And slid down the ice.
I yelled words not so nice.
“How rude!” an old passerby grumbled.

And speaking of winter, it’s almost time to start worrying about your office Christmas party.

    lol… the fun part is imagining the “words not so nice”
    Very fun.
    It was a bit challenging this week. Halloween inspired me though. :)

    I too, wondered what the “not so nice” words were.

    And honestly, didn’t you kind of just hope karma gave the passerby a kick in the butt? ;-)

    Sorry, I can’t reveal my “not so nice” words because my elderly parents read my blogs. :)

    HAHAHA!! Very good and not a rude word in sight.

  14. Lesley says:

    I love a good limerick – it’s such a satisfyingly neat form!

  15. Bone says:

    I would have been very concerned about my phone. And how many people had seen me, of course :)

    Just like an old passerby to say what’s on his mind. Nice job with the 3WW. Thanks for you kind words at Poefiti. Keep up the good work.
