Yves is our host for the Monday MLMM Wordle. You can read other entries or join in here

Words for today are: basking, crumbs, tongue, maybe, lifetime, last, luminous, original, mix, pretend, cicatrix, proprioception (definitions at end)


I am soft, no longer resilient

Basking. My country safe. Protected by law; manners.

A luminous lifetime playing pretend

I presumed to be unmarked by cicatrix.

Proprioception in play, surefooted in the world

Into the mix came pandemic.

My sense of the original, became the maybe

Freedoms cut; tongue licking for crumbs.

At last, I dreamed to once again travel

One more year; I look to the horizon.

I’ve been kept safe. My country strong

Courage departed, I’m now the fainthearted.

Visions of hell coalesce

 Dream of travel, less and less

Psyche doomed, coward looms.

No joie de vie is left to me.

Sunday Whirl Wordle #518 – Arise

Use some or all of the following words in a piece of writing. Forms of words are fine. The challenge is to use as many of the words as possible. 


Snow carpets the land where roost, pink footed geese.

Kneeling, touching, shoulder to shoulder, living the cycle.

Down the line, arriving late, tears flow and wheels turn.

Winter to spring, candlelight to sunrise, flowers bloom.

Too many are lost on this annual trek.

Breathe, lift, rise. Move forward with joy, survive for the rest.

The Sunday Whirl – Wordle 474

How sad is it that a President of the United States of America named Trump embodies a word that means ‘to outrank or defeat’ ‘in a highly public way’ whose desires are paramount and may end any hope that you have to justice.

The sorrow that one feels; that the dream of a democratic process is dead, due to the hypocrite in power.

When you can’t deny the ruthless power the POTUS and his sycophants in waiting employ, you might as well react as the turtle; retreat into your shell and let the world pass you by. It will anyway.
