The following was written for a Wordle challenge over at Midlovemisery’s Menagerie.
Words for the wordle are as follows:
5. Thersitical- scurrilous; foul-mouthed; grossly abusive.
I had to make a purchase today
but the shop was quite a distance away
In my mind, it was a fantasy
to buy or trade was costly in actuality
Finding the street, I made a bad turn
Step-monster was thersitical, said I’d never learn
Half of me wanted to cry
Thinking I might flail, wither, and die
Would I ever learn the ropes?
Learn to drive, was there any hope?

This post is for Wordle 410.
Words here, words there
Match words in the air
Give and take
Tail the team to the stream
If one falls in, throw them a rope
Let them see that they can cope
The vein that runs through the rock
Will never melt for it is locked
Fill a tank with rainwater
For the days that are hotter

10. Heiligenschein (German for “halo” or “aureola”, pronounced [ˈhaɪlɪɡənˌʃaɪn]) is an optical phenomenon in which a bright spot appears around the shadow of the viewer’s head in the presence of dew. In photogrammetry and remote sensing, it is more commonly known as the hotspot.)
This is also written for Six Sentence Story using the word “CONTEST”.
Back in the 1960s life was not as complex as it is right now, people were not in a rush all the time, speech no matter who was talking, man, woman, or child was a lot easier to understand compared to the unknown language that teens use today.
Back then we played tag, now we tag photo’s, stories, articles, use it quite a bit on social media and so forth.
I’ve many good memories of the ’60s as I lived with my grandparents.
As I look back today my grandmother must have had a heiligenschein around her head as she was the kindest, gentlest, most loving person I’ve ever met. She was a svelte woman with beautiful curls and I’m sure one that could win a beauty contest, hands down.
She was always trying to get me to temporize the death of my mother and she would insert stories of her every chance she got bouncing them off me in many of the conversations we had.
