Limerick Challenge Week 31: Friendship

I know I have been MIA last week, I could not even post the limerick challenge on Friday. Trust me, I have very good reason for it! Sometimes, I feel like I need to borrow time from someone else to just breathe! I like to keep myself busy, but this time, I think I pushed too far! Sigh…. lesson learned!

But that did not stop me from reading all the limericks based on the antonyms theme! We have some brilliant limericks for the prompt. If you have not already done so, click here, to view all the limerick submissions for Week 30.

Think it is not so easy to come up with a limerick, try picking a winning limerick from the choices I have!! But pick a winner, we must! So let’s get on and take a look at the Top 5 limericks from last week’s challenge.

And the limerick superstar of this week………….*drumrolls please* Dr. Meg Sorick with this amazing limerick. Only Meg can convert Newton’s law of motion into a fun limerick! 😀

A body in motion or at rest

Tends to remain in this state unless

An outside force

Changes this course

As Newton’s First Law of Motion would express


Congratulations to Dr. Meg Sorick – the Limerick Superstar of the week!

Mahared Wynn and Leara Writes topped my list for their very thought provoking limericks.

Followed by Sandra of What Sandra Thinks and Magarisa of Becoming Unstuck with their amazing limericks!

Now that the Top 5 limericks have been announced, let us move on to the Week 31 Challenge.

The prompt this week is ‘Friendship’ this means that your limerick must be either about a friend or based on a friendship you share with anyone be it a person, an animal, a material thing! Write the limerick in any way you did like so long as the theme of your limerick is friendship.

Finally, here is my take on the prompt:

They met on a cold day in October

Each one a loner

It was no surprise

When they realized

Friendship got them closer
