Reprise – Wordle 241

 Diminuendo of strength
rallentando of spirit

Darkness, silence, oblivion,
is that all that awaits?

Will spirit be extinguished,
ancient story forgotten?

When the game is over
does the music stop?

Or does the conductor raise his baton,
strike sparks from the ground?

Does the glory that is music
give an encore?


Wordle words:  Strength   hearth   spirit   story   darkness  oblivion   game   amethyst   ancient sparks ground


Do go and see what others have done with these at Brenda’s Sunday Whirl

  5. A question we all ask ourselves–I’ll go with the second choice, thank you. And if I’m wrong, I won’t know the difference.

    This one sort of sings its own melody. I too, hope the music never stops,

    I hope not..but i also hope the music is soothing and birds and sea..and kind words wrapping us up and keeping us safe on the next art of our journey – a wonderful poem – with a clever use of musical metaphor
