Rule of Thumb

Indian Bloggers


Its April of 2017 and Day 18 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Idiom a day and 8 line poem for the idiom.

Idiom: Rule of Thumb

Meaning: broadly accurate guide or principle, based on practice rather than theory

Between he and she,
Amid the fights,
Wrongs and the rights,
Amid the joys,
Hops and the cries,
In a successful marriage,
Rule of thumb is,
Fingers are uneven.

A Tasty Marriage

Indian Bloggers

This poem is written for Limerick Challenge Week 41: Taste. The challenge is hosted by Rashmi and can be reached at: Mind and Life Matters.


He liked it spicy and hot,
She liked sweetness a lot,
Tasty differences,
Varied preferences,
Marriage, a blissful jackpot.

Also tagging for the daily post prompt: Promises. Marriages carry many unsaid promises to agree and settle for all the similarities and differences! That’s how the journey of two gets tastier and delicious.
