Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie – Wordle #12

Though wall of block, a wisp I spied

Through peephole–well not more than crack

Golden hair, skin of ivory eyed

While perched on crate, one two I stacked


Her features shone like porcelain ‘tis true

Vertiginous from height or beauty unsure

From my perch to the ground in a flutter I flew

Regaining my wits was certainly a chore


Meet her I must if the last thing I do

Her door I did charge feeling strangely at ease

I knock with brass knocker not one time but two

To the butler I ask, “fetch my lady if you please”


Loveliest of ladies scent of lilac and fair

Laconic I was in her all consuming presence

My mind like an eddy void of breath and of air

Giddy as most boys in adolescence


Most surely I appeared as the oddity I must be

Arriving at her door unannounced

With grace and with style she greeted me with glee

My fragile heart she cherished not trounced

  1. This is pretty nice, Dom.

    I see you did it on some sort of prompt, but I don’t know quite what the prompt was, or whether this is a particular form that I am not that especially familiar with.

    Nonetheless, I like the emotions, images, and ideas in this poem and think you could make it even better if you wanted to work on it more.

    I continue to be impressed by your persistent experimentation in your poetry.

    • Thank you Elaine. The prompt was to use 10 of 12 words provided in a story or poem and I think I used 11 in this one which can make them rather difficult. I haven’t been feeling very inspired lately so although I love writing from prompts, I used this one to help get me out of my “funk”. Unfortunately I am not quite there yet.

      • Hey Dom,
        Thanks for the rundown on the prompt, and happy rising up out of the funk. Can take time sometimes, but also can happen suddenly.
        All the best to you,

  2. “With grace and with style she greeted me with glee

    My fragile heart she cherished not trounced”
    Great ending — I’m glad she didn’t walk all over your heart!
