Naisaiku for 3Word Wednesday

ThomG, moderator of 3 Word Wednesday offers these words as prompt:  Ideal, Measure, Teeter






teetering ideals
measure the angst of the day
memory is small
the past decade fades away
memory is small
angst measures another day
ideals a-teeter

 
 
Rules for Naisaiku can be found here

WonderfulWords, I can hardly remember what happened yesterday, and the more I try to recall the further I fall..

Thanks for posting this!

Sounds like somebody is under a bit of pressure and trying to sweep the past under the carpet - it must be aimed at a polititian(s).

So cleverly done...a swapping of the words evolves the poem and its meaning. Wonderful!

I adored how you phrased this... I could almost feel my own memory slipping as each moment winked out of existence...

I like the repetition of "memory is small." So true of human nature. Or perhaps it would be more appropriate to say we remember the wrong things. Teetering ideals, indeed.

Loved the rhythm of this. I will take a look at Naisaiku rules. I learn something everytime I visit here.

I like the symmetry of this poetry format. Well written... and creating use of the words!

I love that your poem is all about ideals, memory, angst - and your fractal looks like a brain :)
