Five Sentence Fiction – Purple

11 February, 2013

I was saying yesterday how i put pressure on myself, and this is a good example. I struggled for a couple of days with this, but found no inspiration. Until yesterday when the first line hit me, and I made the connection that a limerick has five lines. It then took me till today to come up with anything more, which is stupid as I’d clearly painted myself into a corner, but having found the first line, nothing else would do. So here is my poor effort in response to Lillie’s prompt. I know it’s not strictly five sentences, but it’s all I’ve got. As always, comments and criticisms are welcome and encouraged.


A poet who tried to rhyme purple
Thought “is it ok to use turtle?
Although it sounds shit
I guess it’ll fit –
I’ll use it if no other word’ll.”




  1. Lol. An enjoyable effort. Made me chuckle if nothing else

  2. Love it. Poetry is just that awesome. Need a new war pored BAM!

  3. Yeah, that’s usually how it works… out of the blue. I think this is a great limerick… maybe not 5 sentences, I’ll agree, but I wouldn’t say poor effort.

  4. I’ve written poetry once, and only because it was a requirement for a good grade in English class. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do, so I give props to anyone who can do it just out of the blue or for fun. I only wrote one or two decent poems for the entire unit, everything else was shit. 😉

  5. PERFECT! you are a poet silly
