Within 24 hours, the humidity and temperature have moderated to a comfortable level. It is amazing how fast things can change in the weather and in the world.

The survival of many species is seriously at risk. Today’s poem was inspired by a true “lion” of a poetry prompt at IGWRT. I encourage you to click here and check out the link to learn more about white lions.

I was amazed by what I read, previously unknown to me.

Then, I decided to write a small poem for our small dog.

Limerick for Cody

There once was a puppy named Cody

a cock-a-poo creamy was he

he played in the yard

swam in the pool 

did all o’ the things that sweet puppies do.

Today is a beautiful sunny Sunday in this part of the world!

These birthday blooms are a bright spot in the dining room, true harbingers of spring.

Poetry Month  is proceeding with many poems and prompts emerging.

One prompt at IGWRT, is calling for new poems that focus on a “Sunday” theme. That took me back to 50 years ago when a particular Sunday

— February 9, 1964–

brought a whole new musical sound into our lives with the arrival in North America of John, Paul, George and Ringo! Whether you lived in Canada or the United States, The Beatles and the subsequent British Invasion changed everything!

Here is a wee limerick that I wrote for that Sunday prompt.


There once was a group named The Beatles

Who appeared on Ed Sullivan’s Show

While they were mopheads to Dad

To us, much more than a fad

That special Sunday was ever so fab!
