Mad Kane's Valentine Prompt

Limerick:
The love of my life sent me roses
A gift that he rightly supposes
Would fill me with glee
Were I allergy free
Not sneezing from all of my noses.

Haiku:
In my husband's arms
Seventy years of loving...
Who needs red roses?

Haha! Your limerick made me laugh out loud! Thanks for participating in my latest poetry prompt!

Joyce said...

That is so romantic (the second poem, I mean)!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, too. I checked, and the plural is 'haikus.' :)

Maggie May said...

Hi Granny, Love the Limerick, doesn't get up my nose at all!

Your Haiku is a wonderful love poem, and so true!

THE FAMILY TREE...

"you are what you eat,"
said Granny Smith - the apple
of my granddad's eye...


this one's on me...(I presume you have Granny Smith apples in The States?)

regards, Vincent Hefter
