"Homecoming" (wordle poem)

The Sunday Whirl:




~ Homecoming ~

When solitude drives you insane,
Carry on singing:
Rejection is inherent
To life’s drama.

When it pushes you to the limit,
Keep on going,
Ignore the foul play
Of glad-handers.

Follow my voice, not their gestures,
I will guide you back
Through the dim hallways,
Beyond the past echoes,

Beyond the previous pain of your own
Delivery -
To the source of truth
And acceptance.



Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur

  7. Oh, very nice, Sasha. These are not easy words to use in the same poem and have them not stand out, but you managed. The poem is lovely.

  9. I am enchanted to reach into the ether and grab hold, like Wendy to Peter Pan, and fly away with you. I have not forgotten that 'Tag' Thingy... I have a plan forming of what to do... just needing to find the time :)
