Wordle 400 –

Wordle 400 for The Sunday Whirl

I used eight out of twelve prompt words (those in italics)

She crept up slowly to the shack
Wings of her bird flapping wildly.
Hush Bird, you’ll give us away
With your flapping and crap!

Up the stairs she went with bird
Upon her back.
She tiptoed to the window and
peered into the glass,
There sitting on the stool with
His arm around her ass
Was her two-timing BF and BFF.
Gawd!

Stunned and shocked she watched
Them pop their shots, down their
Drinks and lick their salt.
Just then bird pecks on the windowpane,

black crow bird

Gives a couple of caws and flies into a tree.
BF and BFF look up just in time to see
Bird fly off.
Uh oh, me thinks we’ve reached our limit!

And at that she turned and ran as fast
As she could till she reached the spring
Jumped into her car and headed westward
To the mountain ridge of glory.

Alphabet Poem

 

Alright, let’s go,
Before your
Cockamamie idea – which is
Dated,
Even though you think such
Figures of speech seem new, they were
Gestated many moons ago.

However, with new
Intrigue you may
Just create a
Koan which is both
Lousy and ludicrous
Making no sense nor reason
Nor even rhyming, but
Only showing
Preposterous poppycock and posturing
Quixotic viewpoints which when
Reviewed will be laughed and
Scoffed for such
Trivialities and trifle with not an
Utter sense or signal of
Verity to any point of view norIMG_3238
Words of wisdom, and completely
Xerotic in nature,
Yielding complete and utter
Zeugmatic syntax!

The Mind and I

The Mind and I

Like a trap wrapped around a fuzzy piece of yarn,
It engulfs me, holds me tight.
I try to speak but it softly lulls me back into its trap,
Silently holding my tongue ‘til my words disappear
Into a labyrinth of sleep.

Seek not peace, yet seek not strife,
But be assured that all will be
As God has set forth for all destiny.
Come not looking for answers smooth
To questions of life as yet unused.
Live each day knowing that when
The time has come for things undone,
That all will unfold and all will be told,
As those of old have seen and spoken
From days long ago.
                                               L. Grimley

Just Be ~

From whence do I come?
From whence do I go?
Nay, for I say, as surely
As the wind does blow,
As surely as the sun shines,
So then shall I be.

Music of the Spheres

Music of the Spheres

Music sweet, yet be a piece of gossamer wings,
Aflight with angels of love divine,
Winging ‘way across the twilight sky,
Echoing forth the sounds of song
That blissfully fill all the air
With a rapture of romance and soarful fare.

Glorious tunes fill far and wide
The epigenic entire of paths inside
The everlasting auras of those aglow
With light upon light of heavenly flow.

The music compleat is nary complete
Till time is stood still fourfold upon time,
And all that resounds can then be abound
With light and love that produces a sound
Of clarions complete upon heavenly seats.

For all colors of candles that burn with a light
Of purity pure and heavenly might
Will then be poised and perfectly pleased,
To stay awhile upon flowered knees.
L. Grimley ‘75

If you should be visiting Scotland do try to see the Iona Abbey on the Inner Hebrides Islands. It is place where many go for spiritual retreats or just to find peace and quiet – a lovely feeling of tranquility washes over one just sitting or walking over the beautiful landscape.

 Up high in the sky
Beaming smile for all to see
Once in a blue moon

First I painted Mr. Moon on yupo paper with alcohol inks,  then uploaded to computer and worked a little digital magic.
