Sunday Whirl (Wordle #101) presents a list of words
that we must incorporate in a writing piece.
The words this week are:
disguised, forgotten, country, hurry, tree, wound,
mind, sand, stirred, jar, across, yesterday
We let yesterday control us,
Determine who we are;
Our mind’s forgotten how to try
To look forward very far.
The future’s always disguised thus,
Avoiding wounds that scar,
Like a pretty little butterfly
Kept safely in a jar.
It is a very scary place,
A country that is vast,
The sands of time, once they are stirred,
Fall, relentless and too fast.
And should we find a tree through space,
That can lead across, if asked,
We grasp the safety of the herd,
And head down, hurry past.
