WORDS DON'T COME EASY

We’ve been asked to pen one hundred words Perhaps I’ll write about butterflies and birds I must not write a poem about floating turds as words such as turds are used by nerds! The bright sun shines, this idea is much better and when it rains my garden gets wetter When it’s cold I should wear a sweater and I should stay indoors and write a letter To ensure that I’ve got the correct amount It would be wise to check on my word count With every line the word count will mount To write one hundred words is paramount! Any Poem You Want To Write Exactly 100 Words Poetry Contest Sponsored by Caren Krutsinger 9/23/19 33, 34, 33 – Checked on Microsoft Word’s word count

This was a fun read, and not an easy challenge to do, (it reminds me of being in high school and having to turn in reports and essays of a required amount of words - I just used 'very' a lot!)

G'day Jan … writing a verse with exactly one hundred words a real challenge, possibly harder than when at school writing one hundred lines with all starting; I must not etc. - thank you Jan - Lindsay

That was funny and fun Jan. Something is floating in this but I think it is humor more than anything else. Best wishes in the contest
