A TONGUE IN CHEEK POEM ...BUT ABOUT 2 WEEKS AGO I WROTE A ENTRY FOR NINA'S CONTEST BUT DIDN'T POST IT THEN WENT ON HOLIDAY FOR A FEW DAYS AND I CAN'T LOCATE MY LINES ANYWHERE

I cannot find my contest poem (It would have been a first place winner) Alas, my first thoughts I cannot show em! I scrawled down notes when preparing dinner - perchance they fell in Tiddles litter tray as my loose leaf pad is so much thinner. If I locate my lines by contest day I’ll appeal to our sponsor named Nina then swap my poem, to that which went astray But what if Nina starts acting meaner because I tried to bend her strict rules - my contest wins will be so much leaner... Only time will tell if rules are for fools! Quirky Tercets Poetry Contest Sponsored by Nina Parmenter 4/29/30

Oh I just saw your notes! You really did lose your first entry... oh no! Did Tiddles look guilty??? If you’ll look at the other HMs you’ll see that there was a wonderful group of entries that didn’t quite hit the metre but were fabulous. You are in good company. You must read Emile’s lol! Oh and by the way, for including ME in the rhyme scheme, big points obviously! It’s all about me, right?! XXX

Its perfectly true Nina i wrote a poem a couple of weeks ago, was going to post it and I can't locate it anywhere along with another poem i wrote when i was away... and FYI Tiddles is pure fiction as I'm allergic to animal fur.. but it fitted in with the rhyme lol:-) thanks for being a good sport:-) hugs jan xx

I'm just happy to be on the winner's list Michelle and I couldn't resist rhyming Nina with meaner and she has a great sense of humour which helps:-) hugs jan xx

I'm now at a point where I will get up to get or do something, take three steps, and completely forget what it was! At least I've (finally) put a small notepad next to my nightstand so I can scribble my thoughts while I've got them - hope you find your poem soon, Jan!

Try a cup of tea and relax; every word is in your brain somewhere although Murphy's Law predicts they won't be forthcoming until after the contest closes. Naught to worry as the exercise is good for you! Aloha! Rico
