For The Sunday Whirl poetry prompt: Wordle #117
Conscious awareness quickly raises high wall
when false note is detected in everyday conversation,
even between best friends.
Questioning conscience might hope it was all a mistake,
some off element in the air perhaps
that prevented clear and proper translation.
Best if addressed immediately lest friendship
sicken and two who were firmly together
go separate ways, both sick at heart,
neither knowing peaceful rest, again.
