I won a prize for a limerick

At the height of COVID-19 restrictions, short story magazine On The Premises held a contest. The challenge: to write a limerick reflecting on one’s own experience of the times. Out of 377 entries, 10 winners were chosen, and one of them was me :-). Here’s my entry:

I was feeling quite sick with frustration
At this lengthy enforced hibernation
But an hour of stillness
Cured me of my illness
I’m so glad I tried meditation!

You can read the other winning entries at the On The Premises website.
