Wordle 242



Listen to wise words ─ they can
transform the lives of dreamers
present them with an object, a goal,
until they flower and shine,
water the deserts and other arid places;
bring ease to the troubled,
soothe the sick and energize the weary.

I seem to have lost the knack of wordles, and this was the best I could come up with.  It does at least use all the words!  Do go and see what others have made of it at Brenda’s Sunday Whirl   She herself has contributed an absolute cracker!

    I think you are worrying too much about prompt words for they are just that, a prompt to write and your reaction to them. It is how we react to your writing is far more important than ticking the words! Your piece was cogent and sympathetic and most importantly readable!

    Good one, using all words. I thought you’d left off ‘transform’, but I missed seeing it sneak in in line 2!

    Can’t see anything at all wrong with this! There’s no sense at all that you’ve shoehorned the words together, and the meaning is unforced. Good one!
