My newest adventure is underway. It has lead me to take up residency in a new blog,
Like the Feathers of an Arrow (affectionately known as LFA).

7 Last Call: HONE


limber fingers move
deftly 'cross wires as
time threatens to detonate

"tedious practice sharpens skills."

I know all of you over at Three Word Wednesday wait with bated breath for the last Wednesday of the month when I attempt to compose a clarity pyramid out of three words [3WW=detonate, limber tedious].  It took a bit of effort, but it did come together in the end.  Part of me was hoping to find a way to incorporate the explosive theme into the last line, but with just eight syllables its not such an easy task.

With the holiday, I've decided to double up this week and so (while not much of a holiday piece)...

This is my offerings for this week's dVerse Poets Pub OpenLinkNight. If you get a chance, check out all of the talented poets who have stepped up into the spotlight.


  1. mess up practice too much with a detonator and you wont have fingers to fiddle with...

  2. definitely enjoy reading these word pyramids..

  3. This is great! I took this as an apt description of playing guitar (or some other stringed instrument) lessons with a metronome, but the image-blending you did with bombs detonating is perfect. Stay in the groove and you'll be alright!

  4. Of all my virtues, and there are at least two, patience isn't one of them. Instead I developed a love of blunt, unsharpened skills.
