Limerick Poetry Challenge

Limerick Challenge Week 15: Dark

And I am back to pavilion! Yay, it feels great to be back. I have been trying to catch up with all the posts from the blogs that I regularly follow ever since I got back, but I am not half way through done, have lots more catching up to do. But what I did manage to accomplish was reading all the limericks from the Week 13 and Week 14 challenge.

Since the Top 5 Limerick Superstars of Week 13 were not announced in the Week 14 challenge, here are the results from the Week 13 as well as Week 14 Limerick Challenge.

So, the Week 13 Limerick Superstar is……… Maria of  Doodles and Scribbles with the amazing limerick below:

In the loneliest valleys, hope could hide

Ebbing until you have resigned and cried

Just when you’re about to quit

A beam of light, hope permits

Leading your way out, guiding side by side

The second place is shared by Diane of LadiesWhoLunchReviewsetc for her almost French limerick and Peter of Meritings with his Pope inspired limerick.

The third place is shared by Sudha of Naa Prapancham, My World for her hopeful limerick and Ranu of Sabethville with a wonderful limerick!

And the Week 14 Limerick Superstar is………  Peter of Meritings with the amazing limerick below:

The Pope wants to know, and he’s serious,

just what the thing is that’s mysterious?

He fell in a chasm

is having a spasm

and now he has turned quite delirious

The second place is shared by Vandana of My Feelings My Freedom and Srivi of The Piscean Me for their wonderfully mysterious limericks.

The third place is shared by Alistair of Al the Author with his 007 inspired limerick and Frankhuneny for his mysterious monster.


Congratulations to Maria and Peter – the Limerick Superstars for Week 13 and 14!

Hope you all enjoyed reading the limericks as much as I did!

Now that the Top 5 have been announced from both weeks, it is time for the Week 15 Challenge.

The prompt word for this week’s challenge is ‘Dark’. You can opt to use the word ‘Dark’ or some of its closer synonyms like Tragic, Black, Gloomy, etc.…well, you get the idea!

For those who are new to the challenge, here are the rules:

  1. Each week, a prompt (A Word) will be provided and participants are to use this prompt as a base for their limericks.
  2. Participants can opt to either use the word (prompt) itself or a synonym of the word to use in their Limerick. This is a MUST. Either the word or a synonym of the word must be a part of your Limerick!
  3. This challenge will run from Friday to Thursday, and you may link up your Limerick anytime during these specific days.
