Pensieve's Poetic License-November

Mid-month Every Month at PENSIEVE
Want this button?

Robin started a group called Pensieve's Poetic License. I joined to try out my creativeness. I have written a few poems before, not many, but I'm going to give it a try. Here are the rules:
So, ready to write your own? You have a week to complete it, but PLEASE don't make this more difficult than it is--Pensieve's Poetic License is intended to be a fun exercise in linguistic creativity! This month's theme is "Thanksgiving"; broad enough to go in a thousand directions, but remember, since PPL's motto is "No Rules. Just WRITE!" you're pretty much free to do as you please.

For the month of November we are to write a limerick for Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving can bring out the best
For those who are thankful and blest.

For those who have need
Are those we can feed.

We invite them to be our guest!

We wonder why God does not see
Cruelty, injustice, poverty.

Since the fall of man
Darkness is at hand.

That's why God has called you and me.
Please go over to Robin's for more poems.

Oooo, Junebug, these are both GREAT submissions. I'm glad you took your time because they turned out wonderfully :).

Thanks, too, for encouraging others to have FUN with this. I know poetry can be daunting--I love to write it, but sometimes I can get bogged down--and hopefully, PPL will help others get over their fear of writing.

Thank you, I was up late last night. But I did enjoy it.
