      @w-o-holmes ย That’s a tough one. ย I’m thinking lamplighter maybe? ย IDK. ๐Ÿ˜…

      Also, ย another couplet for ya, taken from a longer poem also written in couplets:

      A good idea flitted by

      Like a golden butterfly.

      "Atticus, he was real nice. . . .โ€
      โ€œMost people are, Scout, when you finally see them.โ€

      That one’s nice; I like the simile and the freeness of thought.

      Maybe, cool. But really, it could mean this: When you’re thinking, your mind goes off into rabbit trails and you think of ideas and it’s all a jumble. Then…light bulb.

      @w-o-holmes I’ve been pampered–my family has been making me so much good food that I can eat. <3 I’m on the mend!

      Somehow I wasn’t loopy at all! My family said maybe the medicine made me normal because I’m always silly. ;P

      @w-o-holmes I have discovered that I am *very* bad at writing couplets, so I will be back with some decent ones. ๐Ÿ˜€ They are my new improvement goal!

      Yeah! I was watching this show where this brother and sister got their wisdom teeth pulled – the sister is usually the loud one and the brother, the quiet one. It was switched. He was loud and talking about Bumble Bee Tuna all the time and she just sat there quietly sipping her milkshake. It was hilarious!

      Ah this is a fun idea, I don’t think I’ve ever really worked with couplets, lets see…

      Picture my soul as a yellow wildflower,

      Smiling even as the rain showers.

      That was fun, I should try this more! Thanks @w-o-holmes for the idea. ๐Ÿ˜€

      It took a litlle bit to get it, but it’s amazing! I like the “shade vs light” theme. It’s like a writer’s vow.

      Very well done.

      Casting words about like candles

      Shades the shadow for lighting handles.

      @candide

      You mean this?

      Yeah; that’s an ‘umongously decorative title. I like it!

      What kind of poetry do you write?

      There lives a little butterfly

      Within the melted yellow dew.

      That’s nice. I’ll get a new stick of butter.
