in the temples of the discreet

In the temples of the discrete, anonymous, hidden in the brume of time, ticks the clock of life.

No matter how aloof, the time-keepers, the life-keepers, bear the emblem of  the throb of humanity.

Some misshapen by the burden of a life-time, use chantage on the keepers, on others, on themselves.

But, it buys no tick on the clock, no extra second, no reprieve.

Written for Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Wordle 39.

A mix of script and freefall – some words lay where they fell from my subconscious creative mind. While this isn’t a message from there, I have been getting some of those lately.

      Thanks — I also was trying to see how many of the words I could use in one sentence, lol.

        I like to challenge myself similarly sometimes – like using the words in alphabetical order haven’t tried to use them all in the same sentence, could be interesting!

          I like the idea of alphabetical order

            It didn’t come out half bad :)

    I like that idea of words landing where they fall. Well done.


    • phylor December 16, 2014 / 11:17 pm

      Sometimes I think of words as leaves — spinning, floating, dancing, pushed and pulled by the wind until they land.


      • summerstommy2 December 16, 2014 / 11:19 pm

        Nice thought hopefully they land where you are heading.

          If not, I rake them up into a big pile, take a running leap into the centre and see what happens then.

              Perfect day to rake up the last of the fall leaves. Or make bubbles.


I love dialogue. Do you?
