Cartography of Depression

I managed particular economy of added words in doing Wordle 253 in the order given, but then had to tack on another ten to complete it with a rhyme scheme of ABACBC, and also add the above heading of three to make complete sense of it :


Draw maps of howling wilderness:

No cover, break or food,

And split with places of still less,

Where, lost, to front or rear a move

Maintains that hopeless mood

No change of vantage can improve.

  1. Very emotional.
    I’ve written an article myself on my own depression and history – and how I believe writing helps us and can help us to combat this. Check it out if you like.

  2. I love the combination of creativity and depression. I’m creative and have had bouts of depression throughout my life, so I believe that they go together.


  3. You are definitely a wizard with wordles. 🙂

    Your economy of words worked a treat – almost like a swift ‘check-mate’ – sometimes when we are stuck..we are stuck..

    Oh, rhyming. Not my strong suit. Like the others have said economy and rhyme, nicely done.

    I can only second what De has already said. An economy of words plus a rhyme scheme. Beautiful work.

    Just excellent. I am fond of an economy of added words when using a word list. And to have done so with some meter and rhyme thrown in is just fantastic.
