Limerick Challenge Week 34: Future

First off, I apologize to all my participants and readers for not running this challenge for Weeks 32 and 33. I have been busy for the past couple of weeks assisting my sister help our little fellow get rid of his jet lag from the long journey and get accustomed to being around his lovely family! But, it is so much fun to have a little baby in your life especially when you are the aunt get all the fun time! 😉 Amidst that and launching a new website, I had to take a break from MLM and the limerick challenge.

Speaking of my new website, do take a look at ‘Beyond Coffee and Words’ a website I am developing along with my friend, Wandering Soul Write Piyusha, intending to help budding writers and aspiring authors. And if you think the content and events is something that interests you, don’t forget to follow or subscribe!

Anyway, now that I am back, I will be back to posting the limerick challenge regularly. Let’s get back to business, shall we?

If you have not already done so, click here, to view all the limerick submissions for Week 31. Here are the Top 5 limericks from Week 31 challenge.

And the limerick superstar of this week………….*drumrolls please* Innervoice for the below limerick which is an apt representation of the prompt!

 A broad, consoling shoulder to cry on

Strong pillar of support that’s never gone

A company to cherish in life’s tour

Keen listener, critic and guide for sure

A true friend is one that only the luckiest own!

 Gold-Badges-PSD

Congratulations to Innervoice – the Limerick Superstar of the week!

Peter of Meritings and Draliman On Life topped my list for their humorous take on the prompt.

Followed by Diane of Ladies Who Lunch Reviews and Sri Sudha with their amazing limericks respectively!

Now that the Top 5 limericks have been announced, let us move on to the Week 34 Challenge.

When the apocalypse arrives

And we fight to survive

Nor applied psychology

Will prepare us for the turn of our lives!
