The Locket…

Tis the Season of unselfish gifting
And times of love and uplifting
A young man got his true love a locket
Soon taken from him by a pickpocket
Perhaps karma for gifts gotten by grifting?

Dark, a Limerick…

Fumbling in darkness, a hamper
No light, not a happy camper
But there’s an easy fix
No need for candle wicks
Just put a new bulb in the lamp, dear!

A Fairytale Limerick…

With hair as black as night
And seven friends challenged in height
Asleep from a snack gone amiss
Awakened by her hero’s kiss
She’s the princess known as Snow White

Brave… an antonymic limerick

Sometimes fear becomes irrational
While awaiting results factual

Trying to be brave
Determined not to cave

Anxiety reigns, understandable!

Hint of Green, a Summery Limerick…

green_hair-300x254.htm

A summery day for a teen

Tan skin, blonde hair, the pool scene

It’s easy to forget what can happen

A simple chemical reaction

Pool water can turn your hair green 🙂

In response to Mind and Life Matters Limerick Contest, Summer. 

I always thought it was chlorine that could turn blonde hair green, but my research reveals it is actually copper in the water that is oxidized by chlorine, then binds with the protein in hair strands and turns them green.
