Ronovan writes #Haiku weekly prompt #399

Bring your bell and pan

that rough justice may be given

to the unfaithful

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #250 #Wordsearch

I will tell you a curious story

The point of it will soon become clear

Not sure if it’s true but this was told to me

So I will just pass on something quite queer

A young girl went riding on her family’s estate

Despite warnings she preferred to ride alone

Now begins the mystery as to her fate

Because on this occasion she didn’t return home

Her riderless pony was found wandering down the lane

And poor Miriam Anne Quinton was never seen again.

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #172 #Songster of the night

Upon the branch there sits a bird

of night, his voice so seldom heard

although it’s often said you may

hear his elusive call by day

but if this bird then does give tongue

it is the same song as the sun.

Ronovan writes weekly #Decima prompt #97 #Doctors orders

Finally I am laid to rest

all my worldly cares forgotten

no more will I feel so rotten

as when the pain within my chest

convinced me that it may be best

if I booked in the surgery

my local doctor for to see

and told that I would have to wait

for they were not open till eight

by then it was too late for me.

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #249 #Rainbow

Remember the days of George, Bungle and Zippy

these characters were an obvious recipe

for a programme for children’s TV

which I am sure the producers could see

would be one of the best on BBC

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #171 My lucky day

Whilst flying high up in the sky

something of interest I did spy

so carefully looking all around

I wheeled and swooped down to the ground

imagine my surprise to see

a tasty morsel just for me

but in truth I thought it wrong to steal

what had been someone else’s meal

whose it once was I could not tell

so being hungry thought, “what the hell,

I’ve had nothing else to eat

so gobbled up the tasty treat

Seizing a crown takes

grit and determination

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #248 #Strange little girl

I used to live in a place called New Mawden

and I went to school with a Lizzie Bawden

with her long black hair she looked delicious

but apparently she was quite capricious

when I asked her if she wanted to come out to play

she said she was helping mum chop sticks that day

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #170 Limerick time again

I used to have a friend called Jacko

he enjoyed a pipe of tobacco

smoking it in church he would sit aloof

but the priest, he banished him to the roof

where grinning he sits by himself and cackles
