Borrowed Sweetness


                                      the woman next door
                                      asked for a cup of sugar
                                      shoes and socks on floor

(Hai's Challenge)

    ooh lalala What a SWEET one. Yeah, I haven't seen you here in a while so I have posted a lot of stuff in a week. I would not say I am prolific, just getting OLD. hahaha. Ten years doing this now and it starts to add up. And doing challenges keeps me at it too. I am sure I have over a thousand poems now. maybe you do too. I just wait for a contest that applies and then pop over something from my files. hahaha (except lately, I've been having to write lots of NEWBIES) LUv ya, Andrea

    Oh, you're a devil for peaches, Ruben! at 14??? Glad you like George Clooney, this is a real story. My daughter's always been a bit weird ... I'm still trying to get some serious stuff on, but these keep popping up! Think you must have the same problem!

    Hmmm, Ruben. Makes me wonder if you received more than a cup of sugar, what with the shoes and socks scattered on the floor. And "Borrowed Sweetness" is a great title, too! Well done, Ruben! Love, Carolyn
