Weekly Wordzzle - a Story and a Poem - Score!
Well, I missed last week (and maybe the week before? I don't remember), but I'm back with some gems this week. Really! Well, maybe not, but I thoroughly enjoyed writing them, so that's the important thing. It's my blog - I can have fun if I want to!
Words for the mini: organism, energy, harmonica, calibration, spread your wings and fly
“Spread your wings and fly,” sang the man with the harmonica. He followed me with his eyes as I crossed the street. The energy of the moment was all wrong – I felt that he wasn’t really a street corner musician. He didn’t even once put his lips to the harmonica. Although he did have a lovely voice. Had the Organism recruited a balladeer to monitor my comings and goings? It didn’t matter – today was my last day in this Godforsaken city. The calibration of my equipment would be completed in a matter of hours.
Abruptly, the music ended. I turned to see that the corner was empty except for a harmonica in the street. And knew that I would not be leaving the city this day.
Word for the 10-worder: wanderlust, wisdom, popcorn, hearts and flowers, melting snow, bank account, chapter, painting, politics, imagination
I used to think I
had the wanderlust.
I thought I needed
to see the painting
and live the chapter -
and leave nothing
to my imagination.
No spectator, popping
popcorn into my
I would live on
hearts and flowers
as my due.
But the politics
of a balanced
showed me the
wisdom of home
and the charm
of a library card.
