I enjoyed doing last week’s wordle from The Sunday Whirl http://sundaywhirl.blogspot.com/ yesterday that I took a look at the one for this week, The wordle prompts were: yellow, lull, beneath, angels, gathered, window, flight, absolute, surrender, waned, risk, utter, rearranged. This one got totally out of hand and insisted on turning itself into a sonnet.
As sonnets go, it didn’t turn out very well, seems rather juvenile, but hey, don’t blame me. I don’t control the process.
BENEATH A YELLOW MOON
by Mike Patrick
A yellow moon peeked out beneath the clouds;
a welcome lull between the summer rains.
In silence, angels gathered in small crowds
to watch the birth of love which hate disdains.
Outside a window, in mid-flight, they stayed
to watch the absolute surrender of
a man whose heart, on high, on longer waned,
embracing risk to search for utter love.
In hungry arms he shared his lifelong dream
of finding someone’s love to match his own.
and with the offer of a golden ring,
he merged their lives and laid love’s cornerstone.
Their lonesome nights at last were rearranged;
from emptiness to happiness they’d changed.
