Longing for Change

100 Wordle~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wordle 100 at Sunday Whirl and the words are master, street, change, share, train, die, calls, stretch, march, words, places, create, and faint.

With these words I wrote the following:

Longing for Change

A train’s calls grow faint

and die in the woods.

March winds howl

down the street.

Words stretch across the page.

I long for change…new places

in which to create, share, and master

myself.

    Concise and full. I love it when I read a poem where the writer paired words in similar patterns that emerged for me too. March winds… down the street. Mastering oneself. Cool.

    • Sabra Bowers says:

      Concise is usual for me. Thank you for full. Glad I posted before you because I wouldn’t want to worry that you thought I copied your phrases. 🙂 Ideas are in the air and we were tuned to the same station, I’d say. Cool, I agree.

    Maybe even a changed word changes the world..like a butterfly effect..

  8. Cathy says:

    I know that feeling sometimes and sometimes I just want to just stay put.

  9. I know this longing well. I’d like to think its a touch of Spring fever getting the best of me.

    No matter how much you change there will always be part of the old you there as well…get used to her, she is your best friend.

  11. I appreciate the concise use of the words, Sabra. A well-woven work!

  12. Carol Steel says:

    I too appreciate the concise use of words. You have captured so well the longing we share.

  13. Hi Sabra. Decided to come by for a visit. What a wonderfully concise and thoughtful wordle!

    Hi Sabra,
    I’m so sorry I’m reading this so very late. I love the poem. Read it and now want to get out of here and find a new place with new inspiration…lol! I never got around to the 100th whirl but I’m already a bit into the 101! Much love to you my friend, starting your forsythia Monday. 🙂

  15. Sabra Bowers says:

    You are right on time. I needed to hear from my blog. So glad you liked the poem. Much love back at you and I can not wait for my forsythia! 🙂
