MLMM Wordle #165

Monday is Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie’s wordle challenge where we have 12 words to fit into a poem or prose.

Fettle- condition: state


You proclaim love amid floral tributes,
Yet you are as unyielding as
Quartz or copper.
A phrase comes to mind as
I wear my heart on my sleeve,
It’s fettle fragile and delicate,
Likely to puff into nothing.
Dog tired, I retreat to lick my wounds,
It was a close shave that I did not succumb
To your empty promises,
My drive to survive
Made me wary and protected me.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
