Writer’s Island: Quest

5 Dec

A bit of fluff for a Sunday morning.  Thanks for the fun, Writer’s Island; and thanks to my editor, Vivinfrance.


Mission: Improbable

You suggest
a quest is best –
some sort of test –
to prove my love and devotion.

I respectfully suggest
you retract your request,
lest I reach a
why-not-push-you-in ocean.

Hmm.  I like that notion.

    I enjoy your bits of fluff! Suggestion: ‘why-not-push-YOU-in ocean’ – forget the question mark as it interrupts the flow. You start with YOU, so why not finish in the same person?

      YOU are a genius! Thanks Viv; I’ll change it now.

        Oops. I should have done that on fbf. But thanks for the credit!

          No, it’s fine. You know I have no problem with helpful critiquing. 🙂 I didn’t post it on there anyway, so you couldn’t have.

          Have another smile 🙂

      I swear it’s not autobiographical. Much. 🙂

    I had to laugh out loud this is very cute! Have we all been in this place before? I wonder….


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
