Day 136 of 365: Families


Day 136: Family Limerick:

There once was a woman and a man,

before long there was a handsome clan,

a lass and three boys,

house of toys and noise,

I remember those days while I can.

Families are precious and meant to be cherished! When you think of it, if you don’t have family, what do you have?

Remembering, with sadness, the passing of former First Lady Barbara Bush with one of her special quotes about the family, “To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there.”

Day 126 of 365: Limerick


Day 126: Today I am sharing a “Where is the sun?” limerick. I have written several times lately about our lack of sun here in Montana, feels like I am back in Alaska. Take this photograph, for example, of Kachemak Bay in Homer, Alaska where we used to live.

There is still beauty to be seen, even when the sun is not out however. As a photographer I yearn for the sunny days of spring! I am going to share a limerick I wrote about the absent sun.

Where is the sun?

  • There once was a sun in the sky,
  • for some reason it has been shy,
  • hiding out with the clouds,
  • all covered like a shroud,
  • oh why don’t you show yourself, why?

How many of you have ever written a limerick before? You should try it, it is fun! They have been known to be bawdy and dirty. I keep mine clean! Ha!

Day 113 of 365: Limerick and a Photo


Day 113: A limerick and a photo. Sharing a winter photo of some trees lining a driveway and a limerick that goes with it:

  • My eyes were instantly drawn to these,
  • these graceful, delicate, artful trees,
  • symmetry, symmetry,
  • a shot that speaks to me,
  • boasting of its beauty in the breeze.

Thought I would share this limerick with St. Patrick’s Day coming soon. Limericks are said to have originated in Ireland.

LIKE or COMMENT if you would! I would welcome your limericks if you have one!

Day 109 of 365: Revisiting Limericks

road lined with sunflowers

Day 109: Revisiting limericks! When I first started my blog I was writing limericks and posting my photos. I thought I would share one I wrote about a year ago. It goes like this:

  • This gravel road is very dear,
  • as our new house site is quite near,
  • where antelope play,
  • and horses eat hay,
  • there’s no better place on this hemisphere!

Let me know what you think! Limericks are fun to write!

Dare to LIKE or COMMENT. Happy Friday!
