Wordle: Nature’s Fury (Entwined)

Broken branches
Thread and wrap themselves around each other
Entwined. Entangled. Enchanted.
Where they touch,
An echo of a tempestuous past
Where apart,
Wind whistles through
And now gnaws at the lifeless bark.
But with the wheel of life
Cobwebs weave and ring
In the oddest places,
Waiting for unsuspecting victims
To fall fowl to their sticky traps
Not a word from the owner of the lair
Patiently waiting, hidden,
Within the prints
Created by Nature’s fury

Debbie’s theme for her One Word Sunday photo prompt this week is ‘Entwined’. I thought it would be fun to entwine this post with Brenda’s Sunday Whirl, and a photo I took as I was out for my scorching walk yesterday. I was also toying the the idea of creating a hybrid button, The One Word Sunday Whirl, but this turned out to be impractical as I needed two links. So, if you’d like to see more takes on both of this week’s themes, the links are in the buttons above.

Wordle: The Miracle Within

Close your eyes
Ignite the power within
Don’t be surprised
As our journey begins
Breathe in and out slowly
Rest and relax
Commit yourself wholly
As we start making tracks
We walk through a wood
All dense and green
And everything’s good
Even those things unseen
We go into a trance
Right where we stand
We stop and give thanks
As we enter dreamland
Through shadow we float
And whisper we rise
Any thoughts we take note
They could be a guide
‘Though rancid thoughts repel
We don’t need them here
And on them don’t dwell
Just to be clear
Now onward we go, away from the crowds
Through vast open skies
Feel the touch of the clouds
Then down into the depths
Of the water below
Feel every ripple, go with the flow
Refreshing and clean
Coolness sharp as a pin
Invigorated and keen
We’ve invoked the miracle within
The power of the mind
Is there to be used
Use it well, use it wisely
It shouldn’t be abused
We’ve now reached the end
Of our meditation
Open your eyes and stretch
And give your thoughts consideration.

Letters to the Universe… The Why Me? Edition!

Dear Self,
Why Me? sounds a lot better than whiney, don’t you think? But even so, don’t you let the rest of these letters turn into a major whine fest.

Dear Health,
I know the changes in the weather and the temperatures can sometimes have a strange affect on your mood and generally how you’re feeling, but could you please clear up this feeling of swarfega I have all over me. I can’t stand up without feeling as though I’m whooshing around.

Dear Mind,
Please pull yourself together. Obviously in the last letter you meant to say vertigo and not swarfega, which as we all know is a strong hand cleaner. Although I probably would still feel as though I’m whooshing around if I did have that all over me.

Dear June,
Hello. Are you here already?

Dear The Police,
Thank you ever so much for returning the bicycle that was stolen from the garden. I hope justice will be served to those who committed the crime.

Dear Bike Thieves,
I hope you learn from this experience after justice has been served, and that you will change your ways, and therefore your lives. It’s actually quite amusing that the bike you attempted to steal, the one that you were filmed trying to damage in the neighbour’s garden, had actually been left out to be collected by the scrap-man.

Dear Poetic Justice,
I love you at times!

Dear Blogland,
I am preparing for my return. I shall be taking a few more days out from blogging, and then I shall recommence. Even if I can’t think of anything to write, it hasn’t stopped me before so I WILL NOT let it stop me again. The break has been wonderful, by the way!

Dear Britain’s Got Talent’s Audley Buckle,
Chicken and Chips! That took a while to get out of my head, I don’t mind telling you. Although I’d best stop now, as I can feel it coming back.

Ulp! And there it is!

Dear Weekend,
I’ve heard that you are planning a rather un-settled time, weather-wise. Please be advised that I shall be a chillin’ out come rain or shine, so you’ll be a gettin’ a no complainin’ from me. n.

And to finish… Dear All,
The temperatures are rising, so keep your cool. (Well, they are here in the UK!)

Thank you for reading!

P.S. Here’s a photograph of an electric butterfly, just because:

Well, they don’t really exist, but anything that fires the imagination is always useful, don’t you think?
