Poetry 101 Rehab offers a great way to keep up with your poetry composing skills and get samples of great poetry from other contributors on a weekly basis. The prompt changes each week and it is a challenge to compose something to match.
This week’s prompt is “Couple” and, while anyone who cares to read this blog will clearly see that I am all for “L’AMOUR!” you do sometimes run into a couple who are so saccharine sweet in their relationship it does rather put one off.
Anyway here is my contribution in free verse entitled…
The Most Charming Couple
I met the most charming couple,
So wrapped up in each other that they were like a perpetual pass the parcel,
With delightful little surprises under every layer
With little secret smiles for their little secret jokes.
With little kisses, grabbings and pattings.
With quaintly matching outfits.
So eager to share their happiness;
Such lovely stories of their adventures,
The hilarious picnic where the bird stole the cheese.
How they almost didn’t get to the concert because the tandem bicycle’s tyre burst.
That time that he bought her a kitten and how sweetly it drank the milk.
How they just loved the same television shows/music/tapas bar…
So thoughtful to others.
Always of one mind,
Such lovely little projects for helping their single friends find happiness.
