Writing can certainly take one in varied directions!

Sometimes, I look for prompts at favourite sites, one being titled Imaginary Garden with Real Toads.

This site provides prompts by and for a cast of regulars plus, they encourage passers-by to comment and create poems, themselves.

I am one of the visitors who has been inspired, several times, by the prompts and the poets. Sometimes I write a poem; other times I comment.

This week’s inspiration was a challenging one for me and for others, as well. The poetry prompt is based on movie clip from Holy

Motors, a French fantasy film I have not seen. Having viewed the 5-minute clip, I decided to write a limerick that I have pasted below for a read.

2013 Limerick

 There once was a short man in green

Who climbed out of a hole to be seen

Running past monuments grey

Munching red funeral lei

Then he reached for the svelte movie queen. 


Thanks for taking a moment to read my limerick.

Now, you may be wondering about the meaning of my wee poem; or, you may indeed think that the meaning is as clear as this blanket of cumulus clouds that covered our southern Ontario skies on the weekend.

Well, perhaps due to the fact that I have not seen the entire movie, this is the way I was impacted by the clip.

I am an avid fan of clouds in their many variations. This photo I took seemed like a great image to share along with my words.

Enjoy the rest of this week! 🙂
