Weekend Writing Prompt #116 – Amateur

Every Saturday, Sammi Cox challenges us to write a post or poem using a giving word, but with a restricted word count.

They say I am happiest
Helping out when needed,
Ever ready to lend a supporting hand.

Ask me if I am skilled,
My response will no doubt be
At what? I have no qualifications:
Time will tell if my
Efforts lead to experience or
Utter chaos of this
Rollercoaster called Life.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  3. Life is certainly a rollercoaster. Nicely done.

    No one starts out as a pro. Love the acrostic.
