Missing the Stone



Flanneled by his blarney

A master of the sweet talk

he walked the walk

 Eleventy kisses unfortunate misses

The stone no longer his throne



This week the event is to Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word blarney. Please drop by and join the fun at Patricia’s Place

      Maybe he did. We’ll never know. 😀

    Blarney can be a bummer if carried too far. He will have to find a new place to talk his nonsense. Thank you for being such a loyal writer linking to In Other Words.

      I’m glad you liked it. It took me forever to find the right image. When my followers take notice, then I know it is worth my time.

        It was well worth the time.. That is how I used to work with my poems.. I would write a poem and then search for ever to find the right image too…. Beautiful Share.. xxx ❤

    I kissed the Blarney Stone in 1989 – some have said that two negatives made a positive and I have been quieter since 😉

      Very interesting. Unknown powers of the Blarney Stone?

        Haha! I think it had more to do with entering into a toxic marriage and not daring to speak for some years and coming out of it rather more measured in my approach than I went in …. 😉

    Sounds like all those kisses failed to win him any hearts! 🙂

    I love whimsy. Well, he certainly lost his gift of sweet mouth talking. I hope the stone kept him quiet for a long time 🙂
