Past Present Future

The future is out there somewhere, Of that there is no doubt, The past is tucked inside my head, For me to think about. The future is unknown, The who, the when, the what, The past seems very certain, Though sometimes best forgot! They seem so very different, Things that were or are to be, […]

Origami

You start with a plain sheet of uncrumpled A4, Make the first fold and then make some more, Then an awkward tuck, And with a bit of luck, You have the paper boat you’ve been aiming for. More limericks at musing75.com/limericks

Hectic

Things seem rather hectic, As events go rushing past, I need to find a better way, To make the moment last. The pace of time does vary, (said Einstein) with your speed, I find it also often alters, Just to frustrate my need, A quiet schedule slows time down, To the pace of an elderly […]

Cyclist

A cyclist from London pedalled on until, He finally reached the brow of the hill, Then he free-wheeled down, To a pub in the town, Where he stopped and is said to be drinking there still. More limericks at musing75.com/limericks

Attic

There’s lots and lots of stuff, All piled within this space, It all looks rather jumbled, Though most things do have a place. Some is packed in boxes, Some of it is bagged, And for basic thermal reasons, The tank and pipes are lagged. It’s always rather chilly, Stacking Christmas bits away, And hot when […]

Up at dawn – Stifle yawn, Cup of tea – Bite of pastry, Catch the train – Late again, Office greeting – In a meeting, Twelve fifteen – Work canteen, Afternoon – Papers strewn, Work computer – Then commuter, Train delay – Like yesterday, Home at eight – Dinner plate, Watch the news – And […]

Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday for some marks the end of Lent, Forty odd days that many people have spent, Missing things they desire, Hoping that will inspire, Their faith in the God of the New Testament. (Other limericks are available here.  This audio file was generated using the Daniel voice of Text2Speech)

Cheese

Its taste is sought by gourmand devotees, Its aroma can be pungent upon the breeze, It is better when ripe, Whatever the type, It’s round, it is square, it is of course cheese.

Weather

Weather comes and weather goes, Sometimes it rains, sometimes it blows, Sometimes there’s a winter freezing chill, Sometimes it’s humid and hot and still, Sometimes the sun is shining bright, Sometimes the clouds are black as night, Sometimes it’s just dull and grey, I wonder what weather we’ll have today? (Other rhymes are available here.  […]

Commute

He used to commute for hours every day, Along a busy and congested motorway, So he changed his career, Took a job that was near, To have time to consider his drop in pay!
