Wordle #88

With apathy driving through my veins

I raised my head feeling for my throw

My nails snagged on the soft yarn stitches

Dreading the inevitable fanatics in my life

Similar to bloodcrows seeking my weakness

Thoughts narrow like an almost closed aperture

Teaching is my passion but not with them at all

Opinions as restrictive as a whalebone corset

My thoughts track toward the more empyreal

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. I love the way you approached that wordle. I always feel there are two ways to attempt a word prompt, either reach in and make it a personal write or to look outward and create a story and make it fit. You have used to words to look within, in such an effortless manner… I really enjoyed this response. Thank you!
