By callous caitiff,
his vessel, once unbroken,
lies scuppered, hapless
sapling of the tree it used to be,
scuttled by unshaven
flotsam now, wincing
in accumulated debris.
Truckloads of this cargo
dumped, his token,
bolus to the bow, hard to swallow,
pithy points of view,
rictus grin was held
till hold was choking,
sunken by canonical
Yves at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie runs a daily writing challenge and I’ve enjoyed taking part in a few. The weekly Wordle challenge suggests twelve words, at least ten of which should be used to write about anything.
I saw the words above and the following is what came to mind.
Engorged on all that junk
each directed needlepoint a fistula
incinerating you from inside out
burning radiated channels
elation to deflation in your
diametric highs and lows
dwindling your stature
estimation in those eyes
watching helplessly your ass
hauled to every cheap bazaar
sick rendezvous to purloin
by all means
to scheme and barter
forgotten all forebodings of disaster
while your cantillations
protest all addiction
and whose eyes weep
in casual indifference,
such fevered souvenirs,
Stone key for love’s
Blocking all traffic
of the heart.
Having another bash at a wordle as outlined here. http://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/2014/12/08/wordle-38-december-8-2014/
Use at least ten of the twelve words selected to create a poem or story. I was stumped to fit ‘hydrogen’ into this one and took ‘chapped’ out when no one answered the door! In ten minutes I’ll probably think of something and want to change it. But I won’t. I only do that sometimes. 😉
It’s fun to try coming up with something from a random selection of words. Have a bash!
Curtsey and debase yourself to master,
Dance and pirouette in shoes too tight,
Play the game and stalk while seeking answers,
Malengine, plum’d spoken has no right.
Swear allegiance to the real world that is owing,
Aftermath of balls, no favours granted, fight good fight.
Minus pumps, at court, they trip self-interest,
Return’d shape-shifters, pumpkins in the night.
Another bash at a Wordle as suggested by http://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/2014/11/03/wordle-33/
I wrote this on the same day but, due to my self-imposed exile during Nanowrimo, I didn’t post it then. But I’m nearly finished now so I can. 🙂
Algae-slimed posts, truncated beams,
one traveller leans,
but for the touch, ooze, an ailing expulsion,
ubiquitous phlegm pitched below to briny lost.
Arched for load till coruscation breaks need.
I’ve wanted to have a bash at one of these for a while, a Wordle, as outlined at
The words offered in this one really appealed.
