While we were working on Colleen’s Poetry Challenge last week, Anita remarked that it was a pity to waste all the synonyms I had given her.
Colleen gives us two words for her challenge, but we cannot use them. We must find synonyms instead. Colleen’s words were mystery and attract. It is my job to find these synonyms, and I always give Anita a list to choose from. She decided to create a poem using all twenty of the synonyms I gave her!
A mystery wrapped in an enigma
One question lay shrouded in darkness
I need the charm to break the spell
Held in secrecy, the allure
The sound of sweet music
Drew me in, I let it seduce my mind
With a whispered secret
I feel myself engage with the riddle
The words tempt me in
Invite me to solve the puzzle
Entice me to see there is no problem
Have I let myself be led down a crooked path?
To enchant, to attract me with the promise of gold
By default, I am led further on
The castle stands alone
Its walls are made of words that
Fascinate and terrify my mind…
