Valentine’s Day Verse

My friend Mad Kane of Mad Kane’s Humor Blog fame, enjoys giving poetry writing prompts. Here is her most recent offering:

Valentine’s Day is coming up — an ideal topic for my very overdue limerick and a haiku (senryu) prompt. Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to write some verse about Valentine’s Day. When you’ve posted your poem(s), please return here and add a direct link to your themed poetry, using Mr. Linky. And please post a comment as well.

So, without further ado, here is my limerick:

Some folks don’t like to be mushy.

They love you, but never are gushy.

If treated to dinner

Yourself count a winner

Just give them a kiss when it’s hushy.

Here are a couple haiku stanzas:

Tokens of my love,

Dear Heart, I give you freely,

Openly, often.

 

Many thoughtful deeds

And kind words shared frequently:

Best Valentine’s gifts.


Dental Poetry

This is my first limerick written in response to the prompt given at Mad Kane’s Humor Blog. Please play along, if you are so inclined!

 

The dentist will tell you to floss

But why listen? He’s not your boss.

If you don’t mind decay

You can have it your way;

Your wallet and mouth bear the loss.

 

Here is my haiku, written to the same prompt:

 

Maligned profession:

The doctor of dentistry

Sees nervous patients.
