MLMM Wordle #245

A Monday challenge I look forward to. To join in, click hereShimmer, Lace, Hollow, Fingernails, Stow, Limp, Flourish, Blue, Transpire, Meander, Never, Caress

The shimmer of light
Kisses a limp hand,
Fingernails free from polish and
Buffed to perfection.
Her head rests
On a lace pillow,
The blue rinse,
So becoming of her white hair,
Borders a face where
The hollow of her cheeks
Stow the tiniest of freckles.
Roses, her favourite,
Flourish at her side,
Their fragrance lost
As she sleeps forever.
Never again will I feel
That hand caress my skin,
Though my thoughts
Will transpire and meander
In dreams when she visits.


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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

    That’s so beautiful, about your Mum?

    A lovely poem Di! I think you wrote it for your mom?

  3. A very touching post, Di.

  4. So educate me a little. What exactly is “Wordle?” Does one have to write a poem using all the words? Is there a specific type of poem they want? I think this looks intriguing, but I don’t know the guidelines, so hoping you’ll help me out! Thanks!

    • It’s a bit like my Take Seven putting the week’s 21 words into a story.
      There are two wordles I participate in, the Sunday Whirl hosted by Brenda Warren, and the MLMM one hosted by Yves on Mondays.
      Both give you a list of 12 words and you try to put them all in a post , be it poetry or a short story, it’s entirely up to you. Sometimes words can have more than one meaning, so you have some flexibility. I love them. Both have the Mr Linky gizmo for adding your URL (you need to ‘visit’ the sites to get there though. Have fun, I know I do!!!

  5. What a beautiful, heartfelt poem.

    Your poem was beautiful and a lovely tribute to your mum! ❤

    • Just read it Melanie, and it’s terrific. The wordles have been around for ages, and it was your suggestion to start my weekly Take Seven!
      Glad you liked my poem.
