Laugh, smile, giggle, snort
This journey called life is much too short
To frown or grumble or sigh
Let joy be your purpose, your passion, your port
In an effort to expand and evolve in my writing, I am participating in The WordPress Daily Post Writing 201 Two-Week Poetry Challenge. Poetry is definitely a challenge for me. Today’s assignment consists of three parts:
- The word prompt is Journey: Write a poem about anything that word evokes for you.
- The form is Limerick: The traditional rhyming scheme of a limerick is a a b b a — the first two lines rhyme, then the next two, and the final verse rhymes with the first couplet.
- The device is Alliteration: Using the same consonant multiple times in close proximity.
To me, the greatest journey of all is life and letting joy be our purpose and passion is the ultimate goal. This is what inspired my limerick for today’s challenge.
Wishing you laughs and smiles and giggles and snorts!
Cheers & Hugs,
