The Sunday Whirl ~ Wordle 565 ~ #Poetry ~ #ASharpSword


No filters from the mind of a child
Truth can stab like a sharp sword
The ground can be swept 
from beneath your feet
Leaving a puzzle for you to think on
The film you watch, all too familiar
The artwork on your wall, stolen
Breeze from the open window
standing the hair on the back of your neck
Judging your own misdemeanours
Mindful now, as if your life feels 
as if you walk on a thin wire
Still, you tell yourself, 
one last job couldn’t hurt…

I see you… #Poetry

I See You


I see a piece of you
like a puzzle that has slipped out of place
it's the reason you are out of step with your life.
I see the chaos in the space between
strange moments that don't fit
that don't belong to you.
As if someone is trying to occupy
the space before it closes.
I hear your voice, the sound belongs to another
harsh, cruel. It scares me as if someone
has taken a piece of my mind.
Does it match your missing part?
Will we find a way to put them back in place?
will life tear more away,
as if we were no more than cardboard cut-outs
from a forgotten jigsaw puzzle...

Did you spot the Hidden Message?

As I sit in front of my pc

Thunder and lightning

try to break through my window

A symphony to the anger of the world

A wake-up call, HELLO from the universe

Thunder cracking TO the beat of my heart

ALL my thoughts spark, arcing

Whispered thoughts from a few of OUR FOLLOWERS,

This lifted the day, the dark mood that came over me

Vanished. I HAVE time for lunch, have a cup of coffee

I could end up having A GOOD DAY!

Did you spot the Hidden Message?

“Hello to all our followers, have a good day!”

P.S.  Audrey Driscoll almost made it with “I hope you did have a good day!”

John Howell said “Comments from followers can alter the day from bad to good…”

So, where were the rest of you?
