EVAPORATED

For A Wordling Whirl of Sundays
This week's words: tugs, seaweed, released, breathes, slides,water, river, supersedes, evaporation, mist, tiny, embroidered


WISH YOU WERE HERE?

Evaporation, condensation
Tiny particles of vapour

Mist, to you and me

Dreams released; truth supersedes them
Picture slides back into focus

Face reality

Your embroidered imagination
River cruising, water splashing

Sun soaked summer leave

Our experience – tug boats, seaweed
Frost bite, seasick and an oil slick

As I live and breathe…!

  3. My favorite stanza is the send one, Stan. If there was only a way dreams could instead supersede truth!

  5. "Dreams released; truth supersedes them
    Picture slides back into focus
    Face reality', I really love that part Stan. Nicely wordled words.

  7. I love the Pink Floyd reference. Easily one of the 10 top bands ever. My favorite song of theirs is Echoes.

  14. Love the irony in the questioning title! A beautiful, sharp contrast of the dream v. the reality!

  15. Stan, I got to the end and with "oil slick" it wasn't just dreams that were released. I like the contrast between the last two stanzas. And you snuck some rhyme in there too. Well done!
