Again, the Sunday Whirl, http://sundaywhirl.wordpress.com/, came up with a wonderful set of words for Wordle #31. The words are: diamond, mindless, spark, fires, ice, smolder, oblivious, sky, silence, planet, trapped and drowned.
It was pleasant to write on a lighter subject and a different passion. For a model, I had Sandy’s stories of her son in his youth.
To cheers he walked across the diamond,
mindless of the adoring crowd,
oblivious to the darkening sky,
trapped in a planet of silence.
For the next two hours he stayed submerged,
drowned in concentration.
Only beneath the ice in his eyes
could a single spark be found:
a reflection of the competitive fires
smoldering just below
as he pitched his first no-hitter.
