Old vs New – Crimson’s Creative Challenge #59

Crispina‘s challenge is always a fun one for me to attempt. I like to find a photo to match or go with and I can’t believe I did find one – kinda/sorta πŸ˜‰


Old vs New

You’re so old-fashioned and much outdated

You really ought to modernize

Each candle must be manipulated

Your light so dim, they strain their eyes


Look at me, you can see how far I’ve come

Their lives have become so easy

With a mere flick of the switch, I turn on

And it matters not if it’s breezy!

  1. Q,

    Not only did you accept the challenge, you nailed challenge. Agin. πŸ˜‰

    And not only did you accept and nail this particular challenge, but you did what we talk about with poetry all the time. You mixed and stirred and edited out and edited in and got to where it was the kind of rhyming poetry that isn’t kitschy. That ain’t a small feat, by any stretch.

    The only rhyming poetry I could do would be Jack and Jill. And that ain’t even mine so there’s that! πŸ˜‰

    You did it. Again. And agin!

  2. Sorryless has already said, yet I will repeat… you’ve nailed it. Wow, that photo of yours really does do it. Then you add a poem, like the icing upon the already rich and fruity Christmas cake. Nice one, Dale. πŸ™‚

  3. beautiful photo and clever verse. I am guilty of preferring ease over beauty when it comes to life’s ‘essential’ utilities although I do plan at least a summers stay in a dry cabin, which up here means no indoor privvy and no running water.. I’m sure my escapade will be fodder for my writing when I do.

    • Thank you, Violet. I must admit the rustic charm can only go so far or for so long…
      We used to go camping – from tent, to pop-up to trailer – you couldn’t get me to go back to a tent – I guess I’m limited to how far I’m willing to go without!

  4. Keep on blushing, darlin’ … because this is somethin’! πŸ™‚
    Love it!
    And it is very fun and very true! (personally, after the eight days of candling, I’m pretty happy with not having to rely on those for lightin’) πŸ˜‰
    Progress is good!

    This is the 2020 hair, all free and flippant. I can’t wait to draw it!
