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

  1. I very much enjoyed the chuckles. Thanks.


  2. Why waste time on your troubles,
    Try not to think
    About all that ails you
    Over a drinkπŸ˜€

    Troubles do indicate a life being lived
    So smile and cheer up
    Give someone a winkπŸ˜‰


  3. Very nice, Eugenia, I’m enjoying the chuckles! πŸ˜€


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