Pensieve's Poetic License Challenge

While I don't technically have to post this until tomorrow, I thought I'd get it down now before my ISP goes all wonky AGAIN! *sigh*

Form for January: terza rima
Topic: beginnings OR fave snack food! (LOL)

And, I give you....mine! *wink*

A brave and bright new year has started
New habits begun with fresh pluck
Old habits and junk food have parted

New foods which offer less yuck
A walking routine will begin
A bargain with self has been struck

Weight gain while not really a sin
But a temple God gave me neglected
Weight loss is a battle I’ll win

A healthier lifestyle selected!

Great job, I still don't think I get it! LOL. You have inspired me to at least have a go.

Ha! I love it. You sort of combined the two topics! I'm jealous of your writing skill.

Shazaam! Wahooo!!! You combined the two!

Color me impressed, Beth :).

Gosh...I'm visiting everyone who's linked so far and I'm wowed with how WELL these are written. I don't know what I expected, but the poems have blown my expectations out of the water.

See? There is so much talent just waiting to be unleashed!! Thanks for joining in this month :).

Cool! I liked this one -- I can't believe you found a way to combine both themes!

LOL -- I got so into it that I completely forgot there were themes assigned. Oh, well. I don't have the energy to go back and do it again.

Snacks and new beginnings. Very well integrated. You must stop snacks before they begin!

you should add a second line to make a couplet at the end:

"And, so a bar she erected"
