For a Whirling Wordle of Sundays
Words for today are stop, substituted, textured, rural, brandishing, slurping, bridge, salty, filtered, infusion, eke, chimney.
Inhale Then Sigh
Infuse Brenda’s words
into conscious awareness,
Leave them to soak
over night, to macerate,
while I dream of escaping
through gate in rural landscape,
where slate bridge curves
above slurping turgid waters.
No substitutions will be accepted,
as I valiantly brandish pen. But,
these strange textures refuse to filter
through chimney of imagination,
and salty tears of frustration leak,
as I eke out a path in mind field
of obstacles she has created.

Notes: True experience, except I exaggerated about the tears just to get the word salty in here, lol. Are you feeling just a bit guilty Brenda? Hope so. The words wouldn’t come together for me today, except in protest form. Sorry.
