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).

...don't open...don't throw away... is not disappearing completely (not yet),
but postings here will be limited.

write off

his terse retort, "lame,"
spoke volumes on how well
he'd cooperate with us

"lack of respect drives in a wedge."

This was an interesting write.  The middle came quite quickly using this week's Three Word Wednesday [3WW=>cooperate, lame, terse] prompt.  Normally it is a simultaneous struggle between the first and middle verse; they tend to go hand in hand.  I get a general idea for the initial word (though it is subject to change) while pulling the middle and end together with the given words.  For this one, the middle came so quickly I was at a complete loss for what the initial word and its followers should be.  The last line is basically impossible to write with out the initial word.  Maybe it is the way this poem unfolded that has me not quite content...ah...but then again, when am I ever content.

On a Side Note:  Recently I posted that I would be limiting my use of this blog.  I feel it has fulfilled its purpose and that it is time for me to move on.  Unfortunately, letting go is not all that easy...or maybe it is fortunate, because I will (at least for a time) be maintaining two things here: my weekly contributions to OpenLinkNight over at dVerse and my last Wednesday of the month "clarity pyramid meets 3WW" for Three Word Wednesday.    I have just recently taken up residency elsewhere in case you care to drop in.


  1. sometimes people's comments can put others off I try to look beyond silly comments.

  2. Can't cooperate with that kind of attitude, that's for sure.

  3. lack of respect is huge...and will def knock that wedge home...

    i am glad to see i will at least see you a couple times a week...smiles.

  4. It's amazing how one can receive five good comments, but if the sixth one is negative, this is what we remember. Well, at least I do. And not so much remember as DWELL, to be honest.

  5. Sorry I haven't been around for a few weeks--I feel like I've missed so much! I'll be keeping up with you both here at at the new place. Glad to read this one--sometimes when the poems come together in an unusual way, they open a little unexpected window of insight. Very nicely done!

  6. Yes, that retort will drive a wedge ~

    Keep in touch ~
