Limerick Challenge Week 50: Goals

It’s week 50 of this year! Can you believe it? We have only 2 more weeks to go before this year is over and done with and those two weeks will also fly by as we get busy with the holiday shopping, Christmas and New Year celebrations!

Well, I guess it is almost time to reflect on the year gone by and come up with some goals for the new year! Do you already know what your goals are for 2017?

While you ponder, let us also check out the Top 5 limericks from last week’s challenge. If you have not already done so, click here to read the submissions from Week 49.

The limerick superstar of this week………….*drumrolls please*  Aks Thariani of The Poetic Syndrome with the limerick below.

With the arrival of the much anticipated letter, leaving it unopened, he rushed to buy the finest attire

Well past the marriage age, he had often endured much satire

Dressed in the best suit and tie

he caught the next plane to Mumbai

Never before had a man walked in with such enthusiasm to a funeral pyre.

Congratulations, Aks – the Limerick Superstar of the week!

­­­­­­­­­I was blown away by the limericks from Frank of Poetry, Short Prose and Walking and Peter of Peter’s Pondering.

I also found the limericks by Diane of Ladies Who Lunch Reviews and Sara Sid of This I Believe very interesting!

Now that the Top 5 limericks have been announced, let us move on to the Week 50 Challenge.

The prompt for week 50 is Goals. Write a limerick about your goals, it may be a short term goal or a long term goal, write it in any way you like so long as it talks about your goals!

I am excited about this week’s challenge to read about everyone’s goals!

Finally, here’s my take on the prompt:

Every day I say

Today is going to be the day

When I am finally ready

To publish my novel already

As the day passes, my goals remain in a state of ‘may’!
