Poetry Challenge (I don’t claim to be a poet).

I am certainly no poet, and I know it. But I was challenged by Elle Superstar to the “Love in ten sentences” Challenge. I had to write a ten line poem with the word Love in each line, and only four words per line. It proved to be quite tricky.

Sooo, here it is:


There’s love in pancakes
There’s love in kisses
There’s love in silence
There’s love in laughter
There’s love in debate

Love shapes the pancakes
Love causes the kisses
Love speaks in silence
Love sparkles with laughter
Love endures the debate

Of course, I am also to nominate other bloggers. This part of the process is the hard part for me. I am always afraid I’m “imposing” on the victim of my nomination or challenge. Many people are thrilled to be tapped for such things, but I think some are not so much. Anyhow, here are some challenge-ees

These three young ladies at DIY Just Cuz should be able to put their heads together and come up with some prose.

And I would have challenged the ever-poetic Sophie, but I see she has already taken the challenge so I won’t make her do it again.

So lets get another guy to weigh in on love (tee-hee!) and nominate Cookies Dad. . . . . Sorry bro.

Also Trudy so we can get a New York perspective on Love.

Finally, Cats at the Bar may be able to shed light on the Feline view of Love.

Oh yes, one more thing. I am also supposed to share my favorite love quote. Hmmmmmm, How about this”

“Love hurts, love scars, love wounds and harms any heart not tough or strong enough . . . . ”

  1. Challenge completed! (very horribly by a sleep deprived dad at 1:30 in the morning who couldn’t cobble together a rhyme to save his life). Thanks for brining back repressed memories of seventh grade.
