Poetry Monday

Poetry Monday was imagined by Diane of On The Alberta Montana Border (you can find her in my sidebar).  Procrastinating Donkey joined in as did I.  We could use more joiners.  If you decide to write let us know so we can come read.
Each week Diane provides us with a prompt.  This week the prompt is 'sports'.  It's not necessary to use the prompt, it's just there for inspiration.
So...'sport'....I have procrastinated ever since I found out what the topic was.  'Sport'...a bunch of sweaty people running around a field or rink after a moving object of some sort.  Hmmm....   nope.... nothin'.

It's Poetry Monday
dontcha know.
The topic is sports.
I'm feelin' low.

No word of joy
I'm able to bring
to this frustrating topic,
this 'sportie' thing.

I asked the hubs
what did HE think
when I said I think
all sports stink.

Well, said he,
"You like to knit.
Can a sport be something
where you sit?"

So I decree
and I declare
knitting IS a sport
so there.


  1. hooray! Knitting is a sport and so is crocheting.

  2. There you go, it's official now ;-)

  3. It is ok to not like sports, but I never understand why women HATE sports. My ex-wife would actually get angry when there was a sporting event on TV. I don't like knitting, opera, Broadway musicals, figure skating and shopping, but I don't hate them...ok maybe I hate opera.

    1. I don't hate sports Joeh......I dislike them intensely...also Broadway musicals, opera, figure skating and shopping, cooking and cleaning....

  4. I'll drink to that, Delores! *raises mug of hot milk in salute*

  5. Definitely joining the choir here.

  6. I enjoy watching many sports. I no longer partake in sport of any kind. The last such activity I partook was golf...and I really enjoyed the game.

    And I enjoyed your poem. :)

  7. I don't like sports either. If knitting is declared a sport I know a few people who could "win gold". I am not one of them.

  8. I'm with you! I would add cross-stitching and writing. (Watch those fingers fly!)

  9. Loved reading this and I'd just been over at your Knitting Blog too!

    All the best Jan
