Don’t Marry a Drip

IMG_9804 (2)

A quarrelsome wife is like the dripping 

of a leaky roof in a rainstorm”

It is not about the making up

Rather, about making a wise choice

Irritations wears thin rather quickly

So choose compatibility

when picking a wife

Today at d’Verse, Merril asked us to choose a proverb and write a poem that includes it.   I chose Proverbs 27:15 NIV Bible.

  1. So, so true. This can be a sad reality, especially when people jump in too soon and don’t see the red flags. Compatibility is a must when in a relationship, otherwise it can go downhill. Beautifully said and I love how you were inspired by the proverb.

  2. HA! your title made me laugh.
    But, truth, for sure!
    And I like your painting!
    I’ve known some women AND men who were drippy! 😉
    (((HUGS))) 🙂
    PS…if two people both believe AND live by Matthew 7:12…”treat others the way you want them to treat you…”, life can be pretty great. 🙂
