Avoid Muddy Puddles


 Fumbles, bumbles, turmoil and troubles

Slapdash ideas resulting in struggles

No sense dwelling on words that crumble

 Avoid woebegone faces and those that grumble

Retreat to the glade and enjoy the chuckles




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



Please stop in and visit my other blog ThusNSuch, dedicated to poetry –  ThusNSuch

    Why waste time on your troubles,
    Try not to think
    About all that ails you
    Over a drink😀

    Troubles do indicate a life being lived
    So smile and cheer up
    Give someone a wink😉

    Thanks for the poetry and smile Eugenia. For some reason this brought back childhood memories of jumping in puddles with wellington boots on.

      I’m glad my poem brought back a fun memory, Davy.

    Perspective is everything, and humour is essential.
