A Stranger Returns (limerick)

Updated on March 7, 2016

One day something strange came to me

My head filled with this mystery

Wife’s counsel I sought

My answer I got

So that’s what a thought used to be

      MH, I like stopping by to visit. I am always enchanted by how you are able to put words together and create a finished picture so concisely.

      This is just one more example of how you do it. Voted up. Thank you for sharing with us.

      Mh, I know I will have no choice but to smile every night when I stop by your way. Then, along with your other hub of sheer beauty in words, you are just spoiling us all dear one. This one, I am sure, is a very familiar scenario in pretty much every married household. LOL Voted Up and funny - of course! God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      I thought a thought into the air,

      It came to earth I know not where.

      But someday I know that I will find,

      That one single thought that was in my mind.
