The Sunday Whirl

Wordle 48. The words to play with were: 
 hand gestures delivery follows drama limit carry 
drives sources singing previous inherent hallways

* * * 
Previously, the hallways had been filled with inherent silence. Now, the gestures indicated that silence was no longer an option, and even though there was no sound, hands were flying and messages were delivered. The following drama would not be limited to these hallways, the knowledge would be carried to the ends of the earth. Their followers were driven by a passion that resounded from a source in the depth of their souls, and they would be singing as they went forth.

Inger,
My daughter is hard of hearing and sign language is part of our life....so that is what I brought to your piece. I could see a group of deaf people animated,expressing themselves.I don't know if that's what you were thinking, but that's where I went. :) Thank you for writing at the Whirl. Your work holds promise. It will be fun to get to know you through our writing.

I agree with Brenda, I will be a delight to get to know you through your writing. Monks and other solitary groups have always fascinated me. To live in a closed community, oft protected within the restricted and scheduled way of life. Yet wanting to also bring their beliefs to all of humanity.

Thank you for visiting and commenting on my Wordle. I have a relative in such a situation now. Another oft limited community that tries it's best to care for those that live within - some being much better than others. Cheers - Jules
