No Sense Nonsense

This was written for Tale Weaver #252.

This week is a nonsense week and your task is to make up a story/poem in which you explore what you think the word means.

There is no ‘right’ answer but rather an exercise in using your creativity to create a believable tale.

In my province,

     there’s lots of nonsense

Premier Doug Ford

    must have been bored

    When he announced

    Beer at a discount

A buck- a- beer

    isn’t too dear

He promised tax relief

   Vote for me, I’ll be your chief

Hydro bills lowered by 12 percent

   I’d like to know where that promise went

His plan to cut teaching positions

   Will have our schools in terrible conditions

This is all nonsense as you can see

This is what the word means to me

Snowflake Haiku

The life of a snowflake was written for December 2019 Writing Prompts.

 

Gently falling down

Melting as they hit the ground

A snowflake no more

 

Whipping all around

Gathering on the ground

Cold Blanket surrounds

 

Playing in the snow

Catch a snowflake on your tongue

Tingling as it goes

The Swimming Pig

Piggly Wiggly learned how to swim

He worked out every day at the gym

Until one day when he broke a limb

Fallen Leaves

This silly poem was written for Crimson’s Creative Challenge #52.

Skipping through the woods

Avoiding all the leaves they could

Not wanting to hurt any

and let me tell you … there were many

Stopping every now and then

To pick the pretty ones to defend

Carefully put them into a book

not wanting them to crook

Taking them all back to their mothers

Perhaps one would use them to recover

Recover what? you ask

Silly me, their facemasks

Standing At The Gates

This was written for Crimson’s Creative Challenge #50

CCC#50

The gates are locked

please let me in

Don’t leave me standing

I must come in

It is my time

please set me free

Don’t leave me out

please let me in

I know I’ve sinned

please don’t rescind

Open up the gates

please let me in

Here I will remain

waiting and anticipating

For the gates to

open for me

Heaven is where

I want to be

FOWC with Fandango (Fandango’s One Word Challenge)

Today’s word is “suit”

I couldn’t believe my eyes

When I looked outside

There stood a dog in a suit

What a hoot

He even wore a tie

You know I wouldn’t lie

I wondered where his owner was

No reason just because

 

 

Food Lover – Poem

Gourmand is the word. 

FOWC with Fandango

 

The man was a gourmand

And, a poor man

When it came to food

He had to feed a brood

 

Hot dogs and Kraft Dinner

Was all always a winner

 

When invited out to eat

He would never miss a beat

 

He loved buffets

Because he could graze

Upon the food

Actually, he seemed quite rude

 

He loved Christmastime

His favorite time to dine

Eat and eat mainly all the meat

Once gone,  he’d look for all the sweets

 

The man was a glutton

Needed to wear a button

Explaining that he overate

Knowing that it was quite a mistake

 

 

Peanut Butter

This silly little poem is for a challenge over at Patricia’s Place. Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less Use the picture and/or the word(s) peanut butter as inspiration.

 

 

Peanut butter is like no other

Go ahead and ask your brother

Eat it on bread

Use it as a spread

Touch mine and you’ll be dead

Fools On The Hill

the hill

The hill was steep

You couldn’t hear a peep

Till we rolled down the hill

Like Jack & Jill

Giggles and laughs

we looked back at the path

To where we started

Our butts really smarted

Then … one of us farted
