WORDLE #129

For The Sunday Whirl: Clever, Chance, Flesh, Ripe, Secret, Nest, Basket, Blinked, Stars, Saw, Hand, Swept.


BRUSH OFF


He was ripe for the picking

She was clever; took her chance
Offered pleasures of the flesh

Inside her secret love nest
A basket of broken hearts

He saw the light; raised his hand
Blinked those stars out of his eyes
Swept her under the carpet...

  2. Gosh this really flows well... great images 'basket of broken hearts" "blinked those stars out of his eyes" and then "swept her under the carpet" I do think this is now one of my top favorites of yours...would you consider getting this out there in the larger published world?... I really think it is that good!

  3. What a sad, sad ending...to be swept under the carpet. But there it is, and that's that!
