DP Challenge: Time for Poetry

Wooden wishes wither,

Wringing wisps of whispers,

Worthless words,

Wasted on waxen wives

Whittled white with worry,

Weeping wilted weeds,

We wave washrags

wet with whiskey,

Waging war

Within white walls

Without windows,

Wondering why in a world

Where wonder is wreaked,

Waltzing widows whirl

in the Western wind

Among winged wanderers

wishing for welcomed warmth,

Withdrawn from the womb

Waxing wicked

Waning wishes

The wraith whispers.

  2. Set it to a strumming acoustic guitar and wailing harmonica, and you have the equal to Bob Dylan’s “It’s Alright Ma, I’m Only Bleeding”…..
