A fresh perspective
Is all you need
To reach your goal.
Robert (Thoughts of a Father) asked recently, "Why FORTY or less?" and I realized I never explained the origin. The answer? Limericks. Yep, limericks…I love ’em. The humor, the wit, the rhythm…they usually bring a smile. Soooo…with Friday’s 40 PC I wanted to make sure there were enough words within the guidelines to allow for ’em. Five weeks into this carnival, I’ve yet to pen one myself and I don’t think I’ve seen one elsewhere, but if you wanna "win" for the week? A well-written limerick should do the trick ;).
I’m looking forward to reading your perspectives for the photo above–have I mentioned that I LOVE this shot? I took it lying on my back on our very cold, very hard concrete driveway, and the day couldn’t have been more Carolina blue :). The resultant image is very crisp, clean, and a distant view of the light above our goal. It’s just FUN and I thought your responses to the photo prompt could be all over the place–we’ll see! Be sure to visit one another to see how similarly–or how differently–we interpreted the photograph.
New to Friday’s 40-or-less Photo Challenge? General guidelines are here; click here for this week’s challenge details.
You wanted a limerick? Okay. I’ll just leave mine here in the comments.
You are fearless for photos (a lot)
Just like now, as you lie in this spot
But you’d better prepare
‘Cause the ball’s in the air
And my free throw’s as good as your shot
Wow. And to think I decided on a limerick BEFORE reading this! So your group email got me on board. If it sucks, don’t tell me! But yes, I did have fun even though this is so not my thing. Thanks for the challenge. 🙂
Sweet! And, thanks for hosting 40 or less!
Stephen, do you hear my applause? Cause I’m LOVIN’ your limerick! Perfectamundo! Thanks for joining in this week–you seem to have quite the gift of rhyme :).
Robert, well, then, my reminders aren’t buggin’ the snot outta at least ONE person ;). Great first entry…thanks for stepping outta your comfort zone :).
Carrie, the pleasure is mine (but I hope it’s yours, too, for joining!) :).
Mine is up. Sorry it’s later in the day. Stephen’s limerick is COOL!! Love it!! I enjoyed playing along again; now I’m going to visit others.
Hey, I just reread this. Did you say “win?” There are prizes for this? You mean going out on a limb might have extra rewards? I’ll sit here with my fingers crossed. 🙂
Fingers are still crossed. A bit numb now, but still crossed. 😉
