my foolish blunder
begs for sweet mercy
to swipe its great eraser
"relish learning from your mistakes."
ahh...the clarity poem tradition lives on... for a short time, i was not sure i'd be able to manage it with this weeks Three Word Wednesday [3WW=>foolish, mercy, relish]. first it was an insanely busy day and my brain was not in the right frame of mind. i stared at the words for a while trying to make a connection...something...anything... finally i ask someone what the three words reminded them of. first i got 'love'...sweet, but it didn't really do anything for me. then i got squander. i toyed with that for a while, 'cause well...squander just sounds like a cool word. but trying to figure out how to put the 3WW together in a clarity poem with 'waste/squander' a third long forgotten word was next to impossible.
like always though, my best thinking happens in the car after i leave work. i'm not sure the exact train of thought, but the word, mistake, came to mind...and from there...well you've already read what that inspiration wrought. in the end, i think it came out okay...
