Wordle Heads for the Bar


For the latest Wordle (352) I got too big for my boots and decided to break away entirely from the obvious pointers to a pub scene. However, my alternative of the Bar at the entrance to the Knysna Heads estuary wasn’t very successful, so I returned to the pub. That got a bit blurred after a few drinks, too. Maybe I should have included a cheetah picture! 

 

A tall ship off Knysna Heads

The Bar at the Heads we would check,
And wait while loud breakers were
animated;
Laugh when passengers staggered on deck
As if drunkness from toasting the queen’d been created;
Above, eagles watch their family on their crag —
They win our hearts and are placed on our flag.

 

At bar, check we wait for;

Loud animated laugh from a drunk starts;

Queen – eagleseyes see fall from sleeve to floor;

Part of card family to win with flush of hearts.

  3. hypercryptical says:

    Drink has the power to make us creative, or think we are creative, until we read our words the morning after…
    That said, it doesn’t always follow that this is always the case. After all some of the best writers find their words in a glass (hic, hic) :o]
