INSPIRATION: MY next goal after putting the sonnet in my closet is to write a #Limerick, challenging myself to to explore the different poetic forms. The biggest challenge is that limerick is a 5-line poem with a rhyme scheme AABBA which has an introduction to a person or character, their battles and a concluding line that shows some sort of triumph or current situation.
This then presents an excellent opportunity to summarize my one-generation on the planet and as a precious clay in the hand of no mean potter in 5 lines.
THIS IS MR.CHRISLOVE™
I know a young man called MR.CHRISLOVE
Born and raised Christian yet without Love
Spent adolescence as an alcoholic
Bullied into low self-esteem, rejection and vitriolic
Grown up to be a teetotaler, community leader, inspired writer, and an ambassador of Love.
