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.


  2. Pamela says:

    Everything looks so much different in the daylight, Viv. Love this.

    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,



  4. I love this one. It strikes me as hilarious.

    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?

    Convoluted Whirl


  7. Andy Sewina says:

    Lovely, and the last two lines sum it up nicely.


  8. Misky says:

    That was an unexpected ending!


  9. moonlight madness….and the month of may….I’ve been known to give into them myself


  10. colonialist says:

    A whirl wind romance, indeed!
    Another good example of multi-tasking!


  11. Jae Rose says:

    Ouch..what a succinct and knowing whirl!


  12. oldegg says:

    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.


  13. Daylight’s a real bugger. It always spoils everything.
