Hum," I think I'll just ignore it,"
that what Trixie said as she
tried to think of something,
while words were swirling
in her head.

Writers block for her was not
a frequent situation;
but what on earth could be said
about such a word so void
of imagination?

Hum, like birds or, Hum like bees,
Hum, I sing and slap my knees?
Hum, I wonder what was said?
Hum, a song sung in my head?
Hum, I think this poem is great!

Oh, good grief just look and see
she has used the word repeatedly.
The guidelines say, "Don't do that!"
Write abstractly, not exactly.
Hum, this is too hard for me!

The first three letters of "humble"
give me no thoughts creatively;
I only know that humble is what I
ought to be. Some of my friends
have said it was their best quality.

Now here is my submission
and I hope that you don't mind;
and please, next week will you
give a word of a better kind?
Hum? Take care and I will too.

You had me smiling all the way through. You've got some poetic skills here, so I'll look forward to what you do write next. :)

This is really cute. It made me smile several times. I noticed some rhymes seemed a tad force, but then humble probably doesn't have a great rhyme. Also be careful about mentioning the challenge or the topic since if the entry gets an editor's choice it is published in an anthology where the reader may no nothing about fw. I did think you did a nice job of writing on the topic in a fun and interesting way. You also managed to get a nice message in there too. This is a pleasant read.
