Day 5

Haiku and Limerick


Amidst the vast blues

Masked in truce and harmony

Lay stories untold


As I search for tranquillity and peace

I find myself covered all in grease

What did I really expect?

Lounging on the beach in my shirt checked

When you have with you an impish niece

* A limerick must be exactly 5 lines. The lines must follow the AABBA rhyme scheme
