SECOND POST FOR WFW

WORDS FOR WEDNESDAY  selected from group offered on Elephant Child's each week to write a story or a poem.  Try your way with the words and post on her blog and on your blog if you want.  

I picked the first group of words offered again by Mark Koopmans:



  1. Ireland
  2. Treacle
  3. Palatial
  4. Harry
  5. Over-55
  6. Ballistic


I was once a lass of IRELAND.
Like thick TREACLE in my soul
The memories of my PALATIAL home
Cause returning as my goal.

Just don't make me take HARRY
I am barely OVER 55
And he is almost 100.
It is not likely he'll survive.

If I go without him
He will surely go BALLISTIC.
To find an answer for the dilemma
Guess I must seek out a mystic.
