Sunday Whirl (Wordle #93) presents a list of words
that we must incorporate in a writing piece.
The words this week are:
chimes, curved, edge, mirror, mist, raw, scale, scattered, skirted, straw, tattered, vast.
We never really see the good times
Skirted until well past.
Reflections are distorted, curved,
And our memories don’t last.
The clock of life moves on and chimes
To mark the life we’ve cast:
Life is short, as someone observed,
And the scale beyond is vast.
So, in the tattered fragment of life
Given to us to share,
The edge, raw as it draws nearer,
Is a straw that we must bear.
Existence is scattered with strife,
Though hope beats back despair;
And hearts drawn in mist on mirrors,
Are a fleeting sign we care.
