So why I am writing in verse today?
Because it’s that time of year…
When we drink Shamrock Shakes, eat Irish Soda Bread and write rhymes for Lori’s Limerick Chick Contest!
Though I have enjoyed reading the cleaver prose on her blog in past years, this will be my first time entering one of my own creations.
This was my warm up/first try:
Kathy’s a Domestic Engineer
whose plan for her family was clear.
When life didn’t go her way,
she lived through it to say,
“Now I know it is okay to veer!”
But after writing it, I clicked over to review the parameters of the contest this year and found out that our limericks should feature and link to a blogger. Though technically I am a blogger and I could link to myself with the above attempt, I decided that I would like to have a go at honoring another blogger, one that has had an incredible impact on my life since I began blogging almost 4 years ago.
This person never ceases to amaze me with her writing and all the ways she dreams up to help our ALI Community to connect and to support each other on our journeys through adoption, loss and infertility. Yes, that’s right, I decided to write one for our Stirrup Queen. However, rather than making the focus of my rhyme our deal Mel, instead I chose to highlight a character near and dear to her heart and one who more recently entered many of ours.
Now without further ado, my Limerick Chick entry…
Now get your creative juices flowing and head on over to Lori’s blog to find out more about how to enter your own limerick, if you dare. Otherwise, please consider voting for this Limerick Chick when the time comes. Thank you!
