Limerick Challenge Week 39: Seasons

It must be the effect of the photo prompt, I got to walk in the rain and jump in puddles on my way to work last week. It was a lot of fun getting my shoes soaked in the rainwater until my wet cold feet had me shivering into my bones!

Well, lesson learnt – remember to never get soaked when you have to sit all day in an air conditioned environment!

But, thanks to the photo prompt I got to read some really good limericks. If you have not already done so, you can click here to view all the limerick submissions for the last week.

Now, let’s take a look at the Top 5 limericks from Week 38 challenge.

The limerick superstar of this week………….*drumrolls please* Kay of Diary of a Married Woman for thinking outside the box!

Heart pounding, she slipped on nearest shoes,
Thinking, how did I miss all the clues?
Why would he betray us?
Am I superfluous?
Feet fleeing, soul battered and bruised.


Congratulations, Kay  – the Limerick Superstar of the week!

I absolutely loved the limerick by Jay of Running in My Head and Magarisa’s of Becoming Unstuck – again for writing it in a different perspective!

I must say that Draliman’s limerick rendered a feel good factor as did the one from Jahnavi of Recharge your Day.

Now that the Top 5 limericks have been announced, let us move on to the Week 39 Challenge.

The prompt for this week is ‘Seasons’. Write a limerick that includes all four seasons, write it in any way you like so long as your limerick tells a story spanning seasons. It is not necessary to include the names of four seasons in your limerick so long as your limerick tells a story across the 4 seasons!

I am excited about this week’s challenge and can’t wait to read your limericks for this prompt!

Finally, here is my take on the prompt:

The cool breeze of November

Saw them waiting for a new member

Across seasons they waited

At times, getting agitated

Until, came he, along with the showers of midsummer!
