She Versus He

Sunday Whirl  9-15-13

She Versus He

Violet was vibrant and vivacious
short and sassy

Victor was vacuous and manipulative
spread sumptuousness

He slathered until
her single vision doubled


Written for The Sunday Whirl.  Decided not to include the additional word, master.
Thank you Brenda for hosting us each week.

  1. Good morning… ADORABLE 🙂 Thanks for the smile 🙂

  2. Violet’s vibrancy and vivacious nature should clear up her vision in no time. But will she ever see through Victor’s manipulation? 😉

  3. Jae Rose says: writing..i wonder who wins!

    This poem packs the proverbial punch, because of its compactness. Wow!

    Night Class in German

  5. daphnepurpus says:

    Love the compactness and I hope Violet sees through Victor!

  6. I think Violet will see through Victor and she will master the situation in the end.

  7. Interesting ideas here…for new poems…tree of poems…smiles ~ thanks for visiting my blog 🙂

  8. This is absolutely delightful. I couldn’t figure out why everyone was including the word “vacuous” in their poems. I just figured out I missed the bottom two words when I was writing them down. Oh well!

    And when her vision clears.. the lady will see right through his wicked ways! Love succinct storytelling!

    Violets will always win as I too found out and accepted.

    You are amazingly concise! But was he feeding her vodka to bring about that double vision? 😉

  14. Sabra Bowers says:

    Thank you, Ann. I like concise. In my mind, he was violent to Violet.

  15. Kathy says:

    Lovely interaction ~ no shrinking Violet here 😉
