A serious limerick
Having never before experienced the seas, The tykes feared going in past their knees; Leery of foamy waves, They waded, trying to be brave, T'wards their folks' mirthful hoots in the breeze.
A silly limerick
Seeing only the adults' bobbing heads, The tykes took their parents for dead; 'Oh, gosh golly!' they thought, 'But, let's not get overwrought... We could still use 'em as buoys instead!'
d’Verse Poetics: Summer Ekphrastic

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
