Every day visits*
From Moose, Goose, and Orb Weaver
All seized by Haiku

"Why moose and goose?" you may ask. Back on 2/04/13 Pirate wrote a haiku with an elk in it, and I responded with
one with a moose and then included him every day. A few days later in comments Mystic asked "Where's the goose?"
So I started including her with this post on 2/07. A week later on the 14th, Mark Readfern
asked for and received a spider. The rest is history.

*Well, most days, anyway. Grant me a bit of poetic license.

The Sunday Whirl - Wordle 64

Gazing into her crystal ball, The Seer discovers this future news flash.

Later this year, certain housewives will, as Rind did to Odin*, spurn balls in drawers.

To the ignorant, this sting will feel like conjugal subtracting for eternity; though it is only a few months until they desist in the Fall

[Somehow, I feel as though I should apologize for this, but I'm not going to.]

* I am not making this up

  1. Never apologize! Use your muse as wildly or wonderfully as it allows. Whimzical and good use of the wordle.

  2. Walt -

    Like John Wayne says in an old movie: "Never apologize, it's a sign of weakness."

    But it's one thing to unchain the muse, and another to put the results out here in front of God and all these people, potentially even including my grandchildren [gasp!]

    Thanks for the constructive comment.


  3. Very interesting. Thanks for the link - So now that's what they were calling 'it' magic. Hmm. Kind of like revenge being taken out on the next generation that had nothing to do with the crime. Only in this case the it was next generation that exacted revenge. I didn't know the Odin story. It seems like something worth investigating. Well then anything mystical really. Interesting to how the men practitioners were segregated or ostracized - got that from another link in the article wondering what that word was that meant magic in Odin's world.

    By the way, well Wordled! Thanks, again.

    My character only thinks of revenge...and that is enough...:

  4. Spurn balls in drawers. I liked that line. I have a tendency to apologize for the things I write, but was told that it was a bad habit that needed broken.

  5. My "apologize" comment was a bit tongue in cheek.

    I did feel a bit of temerity, but as Ned Stark told his son Bran, the only time you can be brave is when you are afraid.

    And poetry takes real courage.


  6. Poetry does take courage....thank you for sharing yours with us at The Whirl. It's great to have you on board. I also appreciate the Odin reference...

  7. Really? You didn't make this up? Well then, sir, who did? :)
