Mount Franklin's Peak;
fun mountain climb memories

I'm having memories again this day
Memories of El Paso and it's hill
Mount Franklin beckoned me oft before
I would climb the mountain, rocks and all
Then the cable car I'd ride back down
I'll climb no more though return I might
Will be in the little orange cage
Up and down, this time I'll ride both ways,
Titanium knee, creaking joints, they beg
Please do leave the climb for younger folk

She's a Bit Weird? -- A Limerick

She picks up quarters with her toes
Has followings where ere she goes
Her friends are getting skeered*
They say she's a bit weird
Think not, my tongue touches my nose

Today I'm linked with Mama Z. at the Real Toads, Words Count (Link)

She  said, "The older I get, the easier it is for me to admit that I'm a little weird. Yes, I can pick up a quarter using only my toes. Yes, I'm a water sign that hates the water. And, yes, I do watch Fox News just to ...  See?  A little weird."
"What about you?  Are you a little weird, too?  Do tell . . . in 46 words or less."

My little Limerick has 31 words plus four in the title (post header). Guess I made under 46.

*  Skeered, '"It's the writer's way of imitating the strange accent of one of his characters. "Skeered" = "scared".' (Google Search)

A Fib(onacci) Poem

Meet you at ...

At the
Melon patch
Bring your spoon, some salt
We'll eat our fill, go for a dip
Then we'll dress and go to a show
When things start to slow
Pucker up

Today I'm linked with Margaret at the Real Toads, Play it Again (link)
And now on Monday I'm linked with Kerry at the Real Toads, Open Link Monday (link)
-  like to "Play it Again, Toads!" where one may select a challenge from the three (prior challenges that Margaret has selected). 
- I chose # 2 (link) which says, "The Fib(onacci) - imagined by Hedgewitch."  Syllable length is based on the Fibonacci Sequence (math majors love these, I have a math minor with 21 college hours of math.  Differential Equations was my final course [that I passed]). 
- My "Fib" poem today is 1/1/2/3/5/8 syllables, then I reversed the number sequence after 8 syllables for a 12-line 'poem'.
