blessing for voters, a Wordle

Bless the blue and the red those who tirelessly stump for votes among the hopeful and hopeless grabbing at sticks and straws as they burn bridges behind them and always conceal how they ran the race the votes they cast—win or lose— behind the locked curtain. ©Sometimes, 2017 Wordle #273, November 11, 2016 … by MindLoveMisery the words:   blue, burn, lose, race, red, lock, … Continue reading blessing for voters, a Wordle

Wisteria in silence and sound

A scent of Wisteria if real or fake borne by warm breezes over rippling tidewaters. A ship’s sharp whistle from deep in the gut, as sweet music echoes through silent halls … a faceless, mute bibliotaph, who treasures… within his soul… sounds he cannot experience except in his penetralia. © Sometimes, 2017   This WORDLE #129, has languished in my notebook for months.    I … Continue reading Wisteria in silence and sound

a penny’s worth of death, a poem MindLoveMisery’s Wordle # 166

    a penny worth of death A gun, dark and dreadful, cold steel caressing the unwilling hand seductive music of silence and pain… among bloody ravages of the plague as dancing creatures defy the promise of the Tarot foretelling the kiss that comes forth— levitating, tentatively echoing the sparking retort of the pistol’s release of a penny’s worth of death. ©Sometimes, 2017 Continue reading a penny’s worth of death, a poem MindLoveMisery’s Wordle # 166

swan song, Wordle # 124, MindLoveMisery’sMenagerie

Here’s a scrap of rhyme from one of my notebooks, Wordle #124, from last October’s prompt in MindLoveMisery’s post.    I would apologize for the delay, but here it is anyway….better late than never. https://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/2016/10/10/wordle-124-october-10th-2016 A grey Cygnet has lost its Mum adrift on a branch of fennel.

Scapegrace…MMLM Wordle 137

(Day 16, 2017) Rogue Mayor ever the scapegrace (his position aside) given no quarter of tolerance for sudden nicotine cravings… mealy-mouthed and queasy from years of parapraxis and gelatinous back-bone… he longed for a fusion of wit and wisdom to complement his vast popularity. Then at last came the day that a spark took flare and he enacted a non-smoking law of dubious but far-reaching … Continue reading Scapegrace…MMLM Wordle 137

a walk in the park… a wordle poem

As we walk along the darkened trail pine needles crunch beneath our boots giving pungent aroma into the night. Lanterns glow beyond curtained mist we laugh as  an owl a “good evening” hoots. We take the trail to the river edge where trim gardens hide their colors as they gather rest for tomorrow’s sunlight. The moon parts clouds to reveal the bridge, silhouetted demurely against midnight sky. … Continue reading a walk in the park… a wordle poem
