The printed word remains, sunday wordle 55

Sunday Wordle #55align, emerging, print, cobalt, vibrate, contrast, chance, wink, dot, grind, clear, hook

Align this text
with all your dots
you put in there
by mere chance.

Let’s print it clear
in contrast
from the grind
you close in on me
The hook
above the door vibrates
with that perpetual
and cobalt wink

The text is still
on print
though your shadow
and your swiftness

    Nicely done, and I really like the text on print though your shadow and your swiftness faded.

  2. brenda w says:

    This is intriguing. It makes me read it again and again. From start to finish, a strong write.

  3. Marianne says:

    Spectacular wordle! I love the direction the words took you, so different from mine.

  4. margo roby says:

    I particularly like the final stanza with its cautionary reminder that words outlast us.

  5. De Jackson says:

    Liked this very much, Mariya. Tight, and powerful.
    My eyes wanted to remove that “and” at the end of the second stanza, to make it “that perpetual/cobalt wink.” The rest is just so tight, not sure you need it. 😉

  6. pamela says:

    Love that last stanza. Well wordled.


  7. Mary says:

    I like that perpetual and cobalt wink! Can picture that!

  8. laurie kolp says:

    Enjoyed this… especially the ending!

  9. Mark Windham says:

    I agree with Brenda, several readings of this one. Tightly constructed, very nice.

  10. Mariya, I like the ending too. And the beginning. And everything in between, but that’s just me! Nice job!

  11. Misky says:

    Clever girl! 😉

    Mariya- So VERY nice to meet. Your words strain at being well behaved and go off in their own direction. They will outlast us all. Great wordle- see you again next week.

  13. Thanks to:

    annell – sadly, it does.

    brenda w – you are too kind.

    Marianne – that’s a real charm with prompts, every poet goes different way!

    margo – they do, don’t they. At least, the printed ones.

    De – I tried to take the ‘and’ out, but the rhythm needs it. So, I decided in its favour.

    pam – thanks a lot!

    laurie – you are very kind.

    Mary – that made me think when I came up with the phrase. And I liked it, so there it is!

    Mark – thanks a lot.

    Walt – oh, I’m glad you liked it!

    Misky – yeah, *sighs*, that’s me 🙂

    Teri – nice to meet you, too. I enjoy wordles very much, so I’m sure to come back for more!

    To me this captures that mystery I enjoy reading, but then either the story or the book ends…and what I have read gets to fade into my evening dreams. Well wordled. If you care to enjoy my continuing story verse you can find the 3rd (of f4 so far) here (Well two are from a different word list prompt and while they can all be read and stand on their own they did lead to each other…):
