wordle12_31march(a Gargleblaster/We Write Poems Wordle Mashup)

You sigh to sky,
swearing melting blue
wind will smile us whole again.

Me? I rain stars, tease
teacake islands too high to palm;
churches of bright rain,
bread, madness.

This pin-pricked window says keep
searching. Morning sticks her
neck out anyway.

    Beautiful, De! I loved “wind will smile us whole again.” Thanks so much for trying out the gargleblaster. I know April is a busy month for you poets, but I hope we see you again! 🙂

  9. This reminds me of a short story I read today, where the wife was always searching for the greener grass and saw her husband as too complacent. Sounds not so exciting, but it was really good and a very good insight into her mad thinking – which the final stanza reflects!
    Anyway, obviously two people approaching the problem in two different ways!
    Now, Mockingbird has me puzzled; perhaps one sees the other as just a copycat.
    Isn’t it the mockingbird who drops her eggs off into other birds’ nests? Quite ingenious, if I do say so myself 🙂

    Lovely! I’m enamoured with: “wind will smile us whole again”. I think you know it’s good when everyone has a different favourite line! 🙂

  11. I’m with Stacy, love ” morning sticking her neck out anyway!
