Yesterday I learned how to shave.
Today, thinning hair I would save.
Years, they pelt past;
It all flies so fast.
This journey from cradle to grave.

Writing 201: Poetry
Assignment — Day 2:

Prompt: Journey
Form: Limerick
Device: Alliteration

Personal note:
THIS was a challenge of note!  Journey — tick.
Limerick — tick.  Alliteration — really?  🙂
I managed to get a tiny bit of alliteration in the 3rd and 4th lines.
(I am actually quite mad for alliteration and use it most meticulously, but here I felt my metacarpals were manacled by the multiplex mission.  *rolls eyes*)
