Friday Five: Silly Sentences

From my dear friend revkjarla, a prompt at RevGalBlogPals:

Because I am feeling silly, or perhaps, just out there, our FF is dedicated to creating silly sentences.  We all need a little meaningless creativity and humour, right?

Use these five words (in any tense) in a sentence:

if you give a mouse a cookie1. pulpit, puppy, wrench, word, mouse.

If you give a mouse a cookie, your puppy will want one, and if you have to go to the store to get it, you can avoid working on your word for the pulpit on Sunday.

2. weep, love, prayer, bassoon, chair

He sat in the chair playing his bassoon with love, like a prayer, and I wept.

3. heart, shutter, wish, turtle, walk

I shuttered my heart even though I wished for more; sometimes healing comes slowly, as a turtle walks.

(Oh, dear. These are getting serious.)

4. howl, worry, window, story, trust

Don’t worry about the howling at the window; trust the story God is telling in your life.

5. garden, hat, shepherd, laugh, sigh.

Like a shepherd with his flock, my garden hat protects from UV rays, whether I rise up and sigh or lie down and laugh.

Maybe that one should be a bonus haiku?

Shepherd’s crook, mother’s
sigh, gardener’s hat, baby’s
laugh: tools of the trade.

  1. pulpit, puppy, wrench, word, mouse:
    If your puppy chases a mouse into the pulpit on Sunday, it will throw a wrench into your sermon and may cause you to say unplanned words. 😉

  2. I swear, you can make the most beautiful sentiments out of randomness. What a gift. I loved it!

  3. Karla’s right. Your ability to take even silliness and produce poetry is a wonderment. I mostly came up with absurd run-on sentences.
