888 - Less than Radiant

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week are: radiant, painstaking, queasy.

Less than Radiant

Late night souvlaki
An easy meal, going home,
Nothing painstaking.

Three in the morning,
That queasy feeling inside—
A sense of unease.

A white toilet bowl
Being closely examined.
Odd brand: Radiant.

  1. Oh dear. I think most of us have driven that bus.

  2. flush with success in your three word wednesday - wonderful observations succinctly regurgitated

  3. Oh my, I think this is a path we've all travelled -- you do so with brilliance. Thanks for sharing!

  4. It took me a while to figure out what I was seeing in the picture! I think you enjoy delivering the unexpected.

  5. I puzzled over the picture too. All too familiar with that queasy feeling (shouldnt that be a song?) LOL.

  6. The second is so realistically typical for most people!


  7. Yikes! I am a recovering bulimic, so this was too familiar, lol. Cos, the simple truth of indigestion? Yeah, you captured it! Amy

  8. Oh my... I can relate. Great use of three words

  9. Uh oh!
    You know, I find the brand names of bathroom items interesting. So many opportunities to visit the name of the company that makes the toilet paper dispenser, for example. And then (in my case, anyway) the intriguing word is forgotten until the next visit.

  10. You poetize like I felt last night.


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
