I did not know the Skinny Poem form. So glad you are sharing it and your wonderful poem. I will definitely try this. I bet it is deceptive but it is something I think that I could practice and get a better feel for a poem that would work.
Thanks! Janet Clare F.

I love the metaphor, Bridget. Some commenters & I exchanged words about "rolling by" this past week, Ingrid's birthday!

Thanks, Janet Clare! The Skinny Poem form is fun to play with, but yes, deceptively challenging. Not sure I did it justice, but I wanted to give a shout out to my hubs. :)

Bridget Magee said...

Great minds think alike, Linda, as we "roll by" similar metaphors! hee hee :)

I really like this one, Bridget! I may have to give it to my hubby for our forthcoming 25th anniversary since he's a cyclist. :)

Congratulation on 'rolling by' with your fella for 25 years! I love that you'd even consider sharing this poem with him. :)

Another fun form I want to give a try ... The way you guys roll through the years together is inspiring :-).
