wordle 68

Dear Wordlers,

Here’s your list for the week.  Can you tell I spent some time on a houseboat?  We are still on vacation…but will be heading home today.  I’ll start making my rounds of your work on Tuesday. 

Write in good health,

    I’m back and posted something! My apologies for not tending to things here very well. The rest was enjoyed, and I have no plans for a absence for some time.

    It;s nice to see so many new faces. Welcome.

    I’ve never done this before, but it was super fun! I did the Mister Linky thing (which was also new to me), but I’ll post the URL here, too, just in case.

    First Wordle for me. Just found you today with help from friends in Poetic Blooms.
    Helpful that I am planning a seven day Ferry Boat ride very soon to Skagway, AK.
    I do not have a blog or web.

    On ship just as the ‘marrow’s here,
    Waiting, ‘hoist anchor’ will I hear,
    then stand beside the long port rail
    (As motor moves the ship, not sail,)
    and watch the shoreline sink away
    while wake spreads out over the bay.
    With born sea-legs, rough sea’s no hitch
    can easy flow with roll and pitch.
    Deck navigate without concern
    as moving first to bow then stern.
    No cell phone ring, so time to think,
    no computer, no WiFi link.
    A week of memories I’ll store,
    and if we sink, worry no more.

    Great words, thanks Brenda – hope your vacation is going well … but for me, even on holiday sometime the darkness demands the page and so it goes …

    Tried 17 times but the poem really, really wanted to be nautical! What’s a girl to do? 🙂

    I’m finally getting a few minutes to read a few of the wordles…my apologies for being so absent the past couple weeks.

    (I do not have a Blog, so, if I may, I will post this prose piece here)

    I sink to my marrow when you touch my space and wake me. Nothing stern about it, just a lovely link holding me steady, as I navigate the day’s challenges and rail against all negativity threatening to pitch my boat here and there as I search for a port in life’s storm, and, finding it in the distance, I stand atop the deck preparing to sink my anchor and climb up on land to go in search of what next is in store.

    The maggots stirred in marrow

    store, to wake through rotting

    flesh, and link the hands

    of life and death upon

    the pitch of life.

    To navigate the ship of time,

    to sand on Soul’s port deck,

    and hold the rail of conscience,

    or sink on stern’s regret,

    before we do drop anchor,

    and ring the bell of death.
