Resignation – Wordle 169

One lacklustre morning,
the sun eclipsed by millions of pewter clouds,
I sulked in my room.
A manufactured collection of heterogeneous words
grabbed me by the throat and squeezed.
Euterpe, the cheeky muse of lyric poetry,
took a hike – shot off her mouth
to the first sympathetic person she met,
complaining that I wouldn’t come out to play.
I sighed (side, geddit?)
and gave honours to the wordle maker.

    Concise, Viv. Yes, sometimes the words do leave us feeling that way.

    I am beginning to wonder if the words were easy, if we’d even bother anymore…I think we do enjoy the battle on some level. I like what you accomplished,



  8. Nara Malone says:

    Loved this. I took my poetic frustrations on a waltz with the muse too.


  9. The giver of delight blended disparate wordles minus muse, leaving those of perusing pleased and amused. Thank you 🙂

    But how wonderfully those heterogeneous words fell together…

    At the end, there, you were just putting on side. 🙂


  12. Ha! Cute twist. Thank you.

    You make it seem like a battle with the word maker but in composing your piece you showed that undaunted you could front up and give us a laugh.
