What time is it? That’s right, it is time to announce the winner for the Limerick Poetry Challenge from Week 3! I am loving the response to this challenge and have so much fun reading all the entries, I thank all the participants and hope you all had fun writing them as much as I did reading ‘em!
The submissions for the week 3 challenge were all simply brilliant and some of them really intense and meaningful! As is the case every week, I had a very very difficult time trying to pick a winner! And as I always say, a challenge must have a winner! In that spirit, here we go!
And the winner of  Limerick Week 3 Challenge is…….. Daniel J. with the below limerick. Check out her full post here!

A young woman thought it’d be keen

To make a baby ‘neath Northern Lights’ sheen

And man! You will not believe

What a joy she did conceive

The child’s eyes glow purple and green!

The winner may contact me on to claim the complimentary gift certificate.
The second place is shared by Sometimes Stellar Storyteller Nicola and Sooty: Me, Myself & CFS.
The third place goes to Kirstwrites and Colette’s One 4 Fun.
So there you go, our Top 5 limerick from Week 3, do check them out! Now that the winners have been announced, it is time for the Week 4 Challenge. Since this is the Halloween special week, the Prompt for this week is “Spooky”. You can either use the word spooky or some of its synonyms like eerie, weird, sinister…you get the drift!

  1. Each week, a prompt (A Word) will be supplied 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 Thursday to Thursday, and you may add your limerick anytime during these specific days.
  4. Please tag your Limerick with: Limerick Poetry Challenge post so that others interested can check out your limerick (This step is important).

On her broom flies Wanda, the Witch

Over and over she goes up on the bridge

They said she was just too spooky

Oh, but she was a beauty

Only she looked just like the midge!
