Sent for Sunday Whirl #63

Thanks, Brenda, for this week's Wordle prompt!


like a layout
of Tarot cards
tableau'd in reverse
snapshots curl
under her thin touch
old acts easily hung
by one upon the other
in utter silence
when gestures of pain
stood between their skin
their lips soon pursed
with done

A friend (and her mum) read my Tarot cards a couple of times. They were both pretty accurate with what they had to say too.
This is lovely use of the worlde words :)

Does it take very long to do these? It looks very hard.

Didn't pay any attention to the wordle words, got caught up the images you built with them. I collect Tarot Cards and often use them for inspiration. Wonderful Write,

You say so much in a concise, evocative poem! This is great. I really like the image, "old acts easily hung by one upon the other."

This reminds me of a conversation I had with my mom, after dad passed. She was going through old photos and saying to herself - I can't keep these I don't even know who these people are. She had boxes of photos to go through. Ack ...I have boxes of photos to go through.
