Sunday Whirl (Wordle #91) presents a list of words
that we must incorporate in a writing piece.
The words this week are:
bends, breaks, burden, diminishing, ditch, drunk,
palace, poetry, room, steps, virtue, wish
No Need for Stars.
In the dark palace of my mind
There is a room for you;
Where, unburdened by our duties,
Our wishes can run true.
Where poetry breaks the confines
And steps where few folk do,
Where inner and outer beauty
Are seen as a virtue.
The diminishing urge for flight
Reveals just who we are—
Lets us ditch a pretence or two
And bend the cage’s bars.
The heavens are a marvellous sight
And sparkle from afar
But ‘til I’ve drunk my fill of you
I’ll have no need for stars.
