Worth A Shot?

Take a hike
outside lackluster room,
manufactured honors,
cheeky asides,
millions of pieces
of throaty drivel.

Total eclipse of soul
might bring
single burst of sunlight,
or maybe an idea?

Elizabeth Crawford  7/13/14

Notes: These words just wouldn’t come together and make any sense. So I finally decided to just pair them up arbitrarily and got that first verse. Then had to take it somewhere, realizing I was having another one of those stiff upper lip conversations with myself. At the very least, I did use all of the words.

  1. Definitely worth a shot.


  2. I think we’re on the same wavelength, Elizabeth – as happens more often than not! The words were the pits today.

    I chuckled at the “throaty drivel” and the “or maybe an idea” was a laugh too.

    Yes throaty drivel…what a great pairing..i think it made perfect sense..you need a shot of light to disperse that soul eclipse and words make great bullets

    I’m trying to imagine the sounds of throaty drivel—and having a great time doing it, thanks to your vivid image! 😉

  6. Ouch! You are being so stern with my friend, Elizabeth. “millions of pieces of throaty drivel” – not! I love the total eclipse of the soul……

    Chuckles! It turned out to be layered with lots of humor too, Elizabeth! Just as well! Great!



  8. Surprises coming from last ditch ideas are the best ones sometimes;_)

    lol … got some great images out of the wordle! Georgia


  10. I hear lots of throaty drivel these days. In fact, it comes at me from every direction like it’s manure passing through a spreader. Sigh! I think what you’ve put together here makes perfect sense. I love the bonfire kaleidoscope too!
