Ten Ways to Diffuse the January Blues

January 27, 2017

Learn a new skill, say, French knitting or origami.
Play hide-and-seek till it drives you barmy!

Teach yourself to count in German, Hindi or Spanish.
Master some conjuring tricks and make things vanish.

Try writing your name with three taped-together pens.
Ask folks to tell you jokes and try them out on friends.

Make puppets from old socks and put on a play.
Draw six things beginning with K.

Paint a pebble, a stone or a cork.
Find five different leaves when you’re out for a walk.

Then, if you’re still bored, think up yet more ways
To diffuse the blues of February days

You might write two ideas in two lines that end in a rhyme  – that’s a rhyming couplet.
Then you’ll have written a short poem!
