Sunday Writing Prompt – 30th November – Contest

It was a contest like no other

Other than the one the family’s throwing

Throwing challenges big and small

Small wonder it’s ongoing

A contest we never forget

Forget others, this is what we want

Want stories to tell morning and evening

Evening after the meal with our aunt

Lead us to the contest

Contest of perseverance and how

How well you can lead the horse

Horse to grass we plough

The contest is never black nor white

White or could be narrow or wide

Wide as the valley and the blue sky

Sky as long as we always tried*

  1. How nice for the family in the poem to have the fun of the challenge, but not the competitiveness. “As long as we always tried” is the best way. I know families that take it too seriously.
