Instant Romance – Wordle 166, Napo Day 13

I swear the gaudy girl tumbled
briefly, deeply in love with him
that moonlit night in May.
I love you, I love you, I love you she chanted,
her porcelain wrists wrapped around his head
as they limbo-danced  under the post.
But passion turns sour by daylight.
Such instant love could not endure.
He served  separation papers
before the moon could rise once more.

For Brenda’s Sunday Whirl

  1. Nice rhythm moved me through this one, Viv. It added to the dance.

    There should be a poster somewhere that reads: A May frolic does not always end in a June wedding. Really like your light hearted approach to the wordle words. Could see you grinning while creating it. Thank you,

    Haha…. you got me on this one – I was questioning the romance-novel “porcelain wrists” and then as though you reached through the screen and smacked me in the head with a quick chastisement … came those last three lines! Thanks for the lovely and thanks for the laugh! 🙂

    Perhaps the ending would have been different if the moon were never to rise again?

    It is being in love that is important not the length of time it lasts. A moment of bliss is worth a month of misery. It is much better remembered.
