"Dreams of Forever" NaPoWriMo #20-Wordle from Brenda @ Beyond the Bozone

Recall days of spilt perfume on silver trays,
fragrances hung in the mood
as shattered dreams hit a crescendo
She believed in forever like sprouting angel wings
carrying messages of flattery and love …
reality’s recollection of crude phrases accompanying
inept attitudes, she recounts how many scars were
left behind from living in a fantasy

  1. Even if you have it all, it doesn't last forever.
    Great job keeping it so compact?

  3. "She believed in forever like sprouting angel wings" - that truly is a great line!

    Excellent work from those words.

  4. This is my favourite part:

    many scars were
    left behind from living in a fantasy


    Wonderful image.

  5. I (almost) never attempt these wordle deals; too arbitrary for me. You've done very well with this particular collection. Congrats.

  7. I love the bit about angel wings, too. What a cool thing to sprout (although they likely aren't coming my way any time soon)! This is strong writing Pamela. You never fail to impress me. Your work is part of my day. Thank you.

  8. Pamela, a great job with those wordle words. I hope the fantasy is an escape from the "crude phrases accompanying / inept attitudes". I really like that line.

  9. "Recall days of spilt perfume on silver trays,
    fragrances hung in the mood as shattered dreams hit a crescendo." What a stellar opening. This wordle is a masterpiece! I tried it and failed miserably. I LOVE this!!!

  10. My favorite line...shattered dreams hit a crescendo. Maybe because I relate so closely to shattered dreams.

    I agree with Gloria...I, too, must find those wordle lists. I do the Three Word Wednesday prompt...I'd like to try the longer list. But I cannot do any of the prompts after reading others' offerings. I get too sidetracked by the verses already written.

    Great job.

  11. Pamelita, a beautiful use of the prompt words. Separating dreams from the cruel reality, an inspired concept. A really lovely read (and you know, I read them all aloud, here at my computer).

  13. Ron, I always give them a try, and sometimes not with very good results.
