Join Diane, MotherOwl, Mimi, Merry Mae and me as we do what we gotta do with this topic :)
You can leave your poem in the comments, or post on your own blog. If you do the latter, please leave a comment so we can come along and applaud. Use the topic, or choose another; the idea is to have fun and work our brains a little.
And if anyone would like to suggest a topic, please feel free to do so! Diane and I take turns providing the topics but there's lots of room for more suggestions.
There's not much of a preamble this week.
Suffice it to say that I am having to work extra hard lately to encourage myself to do my filial duty in a kindly way.
So I've written a poem to remind myself where to find the grace I need.
Duty alone can be a mean thing
It's only a chore, with a hollow ring
Uplifted by love, any chore can become
A heartening song that we're glad to have sung
And some funnies, because I'm in need of them and I bet you wouldn't say no to them either :)
By the way, they all originated on either Facebook or Twitter. Who says social media is all bad?!
The topic for next week's Poetry Monday will be ..... WATER. Good luck!
Wishing all of you a good week . . . no, a GREAT week. If we're wishing to begin with, let's make it worthwhile :)
