That Path of Least Resistance


Bone, the moderator of Three Word Wednesday says: each week, I post some words. People write things using the words. Then they comment here. Feel free to join in this energetic meme!





like a wrap-around porch
a frown follows her forehead

rumors released as fact
shake her to the core

~ spontaneous belief ~
flings wisdom to the wind






This is one of my earliest Bamboo Fun pieces.

Dear Sue,
Very true. Your images are so vivid.
Thank you!
Hope you are feeling better each day.
Hot and humid here. I retreat in the afternoons to my desk and the ac. Good time for me to visit.

Hi Sue,
I have not seen you about, I hope you are well. Enjoyed your art and poem, as always. Wrap-around porch made me chuckle at my wrinkles. ;)

I love your opening stanza. Great imagery relating a porch to a frown.

Beautifully put. I keep thinking of village gossips.
Keep well.

Interesting comment suggesting that belief and wisdom are not necessarily harmonious ideas.

Love the poem and the art. 'Wrap round porch' is a great image.

I love, love, love the idea of flinging wisdom to the wind.
