MLMM Wordle #189

Here are our word choices today…………… tough or what?

Withershins– in a direction contrary to the natural one, especially contrary to the apparent course of the sun or counterclockwise: considered as unlucky or causing disaster.
Brouhaha– excited public interest, discussion, or the like, as the clamor attending some sensational event; hullabaloo: an episode involving excitement, confusion, turmoil, etc., especially a broil over a minor or ridiculous cause:
Competition
Yesterday
Ceiling
Shoes
Feather
Scurry
Tentacle
Grief
Tea
Engine

The engine of life falters,
Scurry away and hide in fear and solitude.
This is no competition
To reach a ceiling of statistics:
The withershins are scary,
A brouhaha results of conflicting messages
To placate the tentacle of greed
To feather one’s nest.
Shoes once shiny and gleaming,
Now dull and worn,
Like the eyes and faces of those left:
Yesterday life was simple,
Tea on the lawn and picnics,
Love, laughter and merriment.
Today it is full of grief.

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.
