Another Ordered Wordle Really Awfully Rhyming

Wordle 270314

A cynical little piece which follows my personal rhyming/strict-word-order challenge, thrown together hastily in between all the dramas of the house-moving scene:

As crooked wisps of smoke, the same,

Words shimmer like reflected moon seen in a water frame;

Three times God called on, by each name;

Light pleas, as one might pebbles, to counter phantoms, aim …

Lead back to void from whence they came.

    Haunting. More. Please.


  2. Bloody-minded brilliance! Anyone would think words were rationed!

    I don’t know how you do it, Col, in so few words – and it makes sense!
    I wrote my entry earlier today, only for it to be deleted by a glitch this evening, so I had to hastily re-write mine from memory. I’ve got most of it, but it doesn’t feel the same to me now…

      Another part of my self-challenge is to write the poem as succinctly as possible.
      I know the feeling of a lost version (like whole chapters!) – and one is generally convinced that it was better than the replacement. I have found, on the rare occasions where I was subsequently able to recover the first version, that such conviction is usually correct.
