My word for 2018:
My Choice

In the darkness

In the darkness 
we are filled with 
spastic sobbing 
and through clenched teeth 
we throw our accusations at 
whoever might be listening.

Life's enigma 
spreads out before us
a dark treacherous sea of reeds
rustling in the storm bursts
it's path never more hidden.

As we watch 
the sea turns into white rapids
and we are hurled into them
the surge pulling us down to 
where we find rare calm spaces
where we can breathe.

It seems like eternity insists on 
waiting for us.

Wordle 88
The words to play with were:
rapid spacious enigma clench spasm burst
insistent hurl seemed rustle rare through

Really like your opening stanza. The portrayal of human emotions is palpable. Hope your holidays are happy ones,

Thank you for visiting both of my Whirl contributions.

I like your line that eternity waits for us... I also like the sea finding us calm spaces. I dream of Atlantis and that perhaps it does exist...

Cheers - Happy New Year too!

Well done. An awkward group, well handled.

I ducked this weeks wordle (A chicken? Or an owl?) and went off to write a pantomime instead. (Well that wasn't initially my intent but...)
