Poet Play and Whispers in the dark






Poet Play

Across the screen in flicks of wonder
swells the spray of poetic play

Born from the grittle of persistent leader
who with due gravity apologized for
a misspoken word this day

Here in land of Wordle where such
anomalies plant low lying trigger relishes
a daisy chain spreads a crack through her and himility 
weaving cool refreshment through this humid way

As all through the forest the queen bird
Wren calls claim in sweet pealed misplaced humility
Having sparked the sweet welcomed echoed refrain 
Tripped the trigger of low lying relishes
springing collective all in joy-full smiling embellishes 








Thanks for the fun :)


or on a bitter-sweet note....







in the flowing dark




With gentle
flicks he slaps her sweet dewy bottom cheek
As passion swells they pull the covers against the spray
Pulled down by gravity and grittle, implanted seed they pray
Hope pulls the trigger on their empassioned relishes
As his chain of stoicism springs a sudden crack spilling
“I love you, I love you, I love you, I am sorry” he whispers in the flowing dark
Himility gushes pouring hot and wet and true dripping in the crook of her neck
A wet refrain as he lays claim to their empty waiting crib
Their world shimmering in tears of impotent regret

  1. Number one is a delightful tease, and number two takes wordling to a new level. Written before the email storm, no doubt.

  2. What creative play! I enjoyed both, the first is full of smiles and the second is delicious with a twist.

  3. Dr. PEARL! Good morning to you. So glad to read you this morning. Thank you for your sweet offerings/wordle pies. The first, funny considering yesterday's grittle gang. The second, sad one but waxed poetic.

  5. Oh my you certainly had a good time with these wordle words. And a tribute to our fearless leader Bren, wonderful. Both pieces are a delightful experience. The first for its remembrance of a laughing fun-loving community, and the second for its playfulness. Thank you,

  9. This was really very good - both held much meaning, but a lightness in the writing that didn't make it heavy to read, simply thought-provoking.

  10. This was really very good - both held so much meaning, yet were written with a lightness that didn't make it a heavy read, just thought-provoking.

  12. Pearl, what fun you had playing - with words and that idea of "anomalies", those fruitful and "joy-full" mistakes. I like "weaving cool refreshment through this humid way".

  13. You capture our morning folly well as we were 'at play'.
    Your second verse was a bit sad though. Perhaps because I knew several couples 'trying' - some went on to adopt. And yet their are others who make different choices.

    I had fun in my own way here:
