The mini words this week: house, bow, intern, sewer, import
An Italian IMPORT wine that Claudia wanted to serve her HOUSE guests was not available. Italian friends who had helped her during a low time in her life were to visit and she had wanted to serve this wine, a favorite of theirs--she wanted this to be a visit to remember. She called a wine shop and spoke to an INTERN who recommended another choice. Off she went in a hurried state to pick it up as she had cleaning to do on her return. Imagine her surprise when arriving home she discovered the SEWER had backed up.. well this is just great, she thought...if I can't find a plumber this truly will be a visit to remember..She called her plumber and was thankful he was available to come over. As he left she made a deep BOW to him in appreciation of his solving her problem. Breathing a sigh of relief she hoped nothing else would occur out of the blue as she had a lot to do before her friends arrived the next day. As she bustled about cleaning, the doorbell rang..when she opened the door, barefoot with a dust rag in her hand, she was face-to-face with her friends..they had arrived a day early..
What fun it is to sit,
and create a rhyme or two..
To lend a bit of laughter,
when given 'words' are few..
But, from my house to yours,
these words will come your way..
I can visualize you now,
as you bow your head to pray.
To pray that the one who writes,
is surely an intern,.
One who still has writing skills,
that hopefully, she will learn..
For I know, your first reaction,
is to throw this in the sewer..
Just think how lucky you'd been,
if challenge 'word's were fewer.
For then you wouldn't be forced,
with rhymes from this French import..
Please know the only reason it's been done,
is to lend Wordzzle my support..
So, get on with your day,
have fun and laughter, my friend..
You'll now feel a great relief,
for this poem, has reached its' end...
