This is in response to Amy Blount’s blog from yesterday – a challenge to use idioms in a story or a poem.  Then I am to challenge some of my friends to do the same.  I challenge:






Here’s my poem using as many idioms as I could think of:


You can’t teach your old dog new tricks, that’s what the experts say,

But my old dog is different, he sees things his own way,

He’s stubborn as a mule at times, he never makes his bed,

And when I tell him what to do, he simply shakes his head,

He explains I’ve made my own bed and I should lie in it,

I try to understand his moods, but he just has a fit,

He says I’m barking up the wrong tree, the ball is in my court,

He says that sleeping dogs should lie, he thinks of it as sport,

Curiosity killed the cat, but what about the dog,

He keeps telling me what to do, I’m sort of in a fog,

I wish I could communicate, as perfectly as him,

Instead I’ll cry over spilled milk, and go way out on a limb.




About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
