Limerick Challenge Week 42: Homonyms

I hope everyone is having a great weekend, mine has been busy so far between driving my son to birthday parties and volunteering at the Fall Festival in his school. I apologize for not being able to post the challenge yesterday as I normally do, but I hardly had laptop time yesterday!

I love the very different takes I got to read from last week’s challenge. Very tastefully done, all of them!

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 41 challenge.

The limerick superstar of this week………….*drumrolls please* Leara of Learawrites!

Syrupy sweet like the juice of a fruit,
Your words drip, heavy, resolute.
You lean in closer, and I taste the deceit
Thinly disguised by charm and wit. You don’t miss a beat.
There is no substitute for the joy of the pursuit.

Congratulations, Leara  – the Limerick Superstar of the week!

PH of It’s PH provides his two cents on a tasteful marriage via his limerick and Stutter Stepping Heart teaches us about mindful cooking through her limerick!

While, Peter of Peter’s Ponderings is busy pondering about all the Trifles that he had over the week, Kay of The Diary of a Married Woman tells us the best way to bake! 😀

Now that the Top 5 limericks have been announced, let us move on to the Week 42 Challenge.

The prompt for this week is ‘Homonyms’. This week pick a homonym of your choice and write a limerick which includes 2 or more meanings of the word you picked. [For those of you in doubt, homonyms are words with multiple meanings.]

I am excited about this week’s challenge and look forward to reading your limericks for this prompt!

 Finally, here is my take on the prompt:

The idea was novel

She couldn’t help but marvel

The wonder of her words

Told a story unheard

In her very first novel!
