an affair to forget
"cast in amber wax" is beautiful and forever.
I admire the dual accomplishment of brevity and depth in your poem. Nicely done!
Succinct and rich in meaning, like truth but quicker!
There's so much going on here in just seven lines. Bravo!
Pearl, I like that last line -- salted with storm-swept sand! Always good to see you in the "Pantry."
I second Mary's appraisal of that last line. I think it's wondrously wrought.A Little Whirl with Stanley
I want to echo Wabi Sabi! Great depth and brevity!
Powerful writing. Love the last line especially.
Concise piece, Pearl. So few words, that say so much.Pamela
Don't you DARE sell yourself short! This is a great piece of concise writing - very powerful! I am terrible at getting to other people's blogs and commenting lately - I am in the midst of preparing two books, plus trying to keep up with two blogs! My apologies for not dropping by and commenting. Keep writing, wordling, whatever. . .just stay at it! You will be noticed, I guarantee it! I'll sign up and follow you!Paulahttp://paulatohlinecalhoun1951.wordpress.com/2012/12/02/a-grizzly-bit-of-fun-wordle-85/
Oh my thank you so very much Paula - (I was actually named Pauline/Paula for my first day on this spinning blue marble).
Your brevity w/ the wordle words proves your poetic ability, Pearl... you are very talented. I especially like:cast in amber wax theirclash
I particularly like the salted and storm swept sand. Lovely image.
This is so strong even though it is brief. You are without doubt a very talented versifier.
You say so much with so few words. Well done.
straight to the point, without a lot of extraneous words - talk about economy! nicely writ.
Let's try this again ... cut myself off again! This is glorious (and so succinct which always makes me a tad envious) - and I love the photo - was wondering if it's a Sandy "splash"? Very cool poem Pearl.
Posted my feelings over at the Whirl page, but wanted to chime in here at the source. Your work has to be good. We share the same thoughts from time to time. ;) Nicely done, Doctor!
Lost my comments. Trying again. There's no doubt about your skills as I had attested at the Whirl page. Besides, we think the same thoughts at times, so we have this thing covered between us. Nicely done, Doctor!
