I've Caught Poetry

I don't know who did this mock-up from Monty Python, but "Brilliant!"

People say things change with the seasons.   If so, this one has been a doozy.  First, we lost my Brother-in-law on Sept. 1st, so there has been much fall-out and flailing about while trying to get things accomplished.  Last week was Wood Badge week 1 with rain  (next week is week 2 with camping out - no rain would be welcome!). I did fine at camp, but upon returning home ended up with a super awful sore throat and a nose that runs like the Amazon river. I think I'd rather have caught poetry or short story again.

This is my second year on staff at Wood Badge and I've been doing the newsletters.  So I have been doing some fun and creative writing (on top of the presentations and other stuff - Have you ever heard of the Darksucker skit?  Too Awesome!).

So, short of posting my Rocket Day blow by blew, or my deeply investigated - "who stole our article for the gazette" piece.  I've not got much today.

I am therefore challenging you - to catch some poetry.  Limericks and Haikus are always fun.

This is one of my favorite limericks - I don't know who created it, but as a nerdy science/science fiction girl, it always struck a cord with me.

There once was a girl named Bright
Whose speed was far faster than light
She left home one day
In a relative way
And returned home the previous night.

Haiku - from me - suitable for today.

Fall day Falls whoo hoo
Kleenex box has no tissues
Sinuses break thru

Feel free to show us what you caught (as long as it's literary or fish).
