For Sunday Whirl: Yield, Current, Phrase, Shift, Beam, Heart, Range, Fertile, Close, Anchor, Connect, Layers.


Don't yield to the temptation
Of drifting with the current
Re-phrase your definition
Shift up to Warp Factor Nine
And follow that pulsing beam
Beating in time with your heart
Stay in range of fertile thought
Get close enough to anchor
Until at last you connect
With new layers of knowledge

For Sunday Whirl: Dressing, Thousand, Messages, Count, Spit, Front, Pulsing, Charm, Thunderous, Dish, Soup, Red.


Overdue a dressing-down
A thousand text messages
(At the very latest count)
Spit their angry words at him
While he stands at front of house
Pulsing with offensive charm
Receives thunderous applause
For serving Dish of the Day
In this jumped-up Soup Kitchen!

You could say I'm seeing red...
