Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge # 33 – CLEAN & SHARP


For this week’s poetry challenge Colleen has given us a tricky prompt – clean and sharp. Clean isn’t exactly my favourite word and neither is sharp! I suppose both of them coupled together conjure up moments in our household where my hubby gets a bit cross with me for spending so much time blogging and writing and so little time cleaning the house! Lol… I’ve never been terribly domesticated… Well, he knew that before he married me so surely he can’t complain…

So perhaps a little humour is the way to go…

About Marje @ Kyrosmagica

Hi. Welcome to my blog, Kyrosmagica. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer in the process of finishing my first YA fantasy novel, set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on Net Galley and Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.

  1. Clearly, your husband needs to start doing some cleaning and tidying up. And you can him that from me!

  2. LOL! You did fabulous, Marje. Shhh, don’t tell, but I haven’t mopped my kitchen floor in 6 months! Yikes. I don’t want to clean, either. I want to write! Well done my friend. ❤

  3. Husband does the heavy stuff, cleaning wise and I do the spot cleaning. My weak muscles, you see…

  4. Nice approach to the challenge, Marje! I hate cleaning too, so many better things to do, like writing and reading. I also hate a dirty, unorganized house though, and there lies the predicament. Most of the time I can entice my hubby to do the major cleaning but other times I just have to put on those rubber gloves and get to it. Ha, ha. Great poem! 😀 xx
