Limerick Poetry Challenge

Limerick Challenge Week 44: Horror

Happy Halloween! I hope you all had a fun time celebrating this day/evening! I just got back after a few hours of trick or treat with my son in our community. We are now proud owners of truckloads of candy! Sigh, there goes my diet, out the window! 😀

This Halloween was special for us, my parents joined us this year and we hit a couple of parades and Halloween parties. I have so much to say about it that it warrants a separate post. Speaking of other blog posts, I may not be seen a lot in my blog save for the limerick posts. Why, you ask? NaNoWriMo is starting tomorrow, that’s why! It’s going to be a month of focusing on my novel and my novel alone, so please don’t mind me for being less frequent in visiting your blogs or posting on my blog. I will, however, continue the limerick challenge.

If any of you are participating in NaNoWriMo, please feel free to add me to your buddy list, I can be found by my username RashmiM909.

Now, let’s take a look at the Top 5 limericks from Week 43 challenge. If you have not already done so, you can click here to view all the limerick submissions for the last week.

The limerick superstar of this week………….drumrolls please Dr. Meg Sorick from Meg Sorick Writes

Dance and sing, drink and eat
Pour champagne, taste something sweet
Celebrate, because come tomorrow
We cannot beg, steal or borrow
The time that flies beneath our feet


Congratulations, Meg – the Limerick Superstar of the week!

I really thought the Halloween themed limerick by Frank of Poetry, Short Prose and Walking and Jahnavi of Recharge Your Day was really cute!

I was also impressed by the Diwali limericks by Piyusha of Wandering Soul and The Grateful Dead.

Now that the Top 5 limericks have been announced, let us move on to the Week 44 Challenge.

The prompt for this week is ‘Horror’ Yep, you guessed it right! This week write a limerick on the horror theme. Make it as spooky or scary as you can. The spookiest limerick wins a prize of $10 Amazon Gift Card (If you are not in US, the Gift Card will be customized to your location!)

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:

Dressed up she roams the night

In the hopes of finding her knight

Under the moonlight’s glare

In the cool moist air

Comes he, ready to take a bite!
