hopefully to right human failings

Bjorn's given words:
dyadic  - relating to or based on two; twofold
profess  -  To affirm openly; declare or claim
carnalize - debase through carnal gratification
dingy  - Shabby, drab, or squalid.
holly  -  the foliage and berries, used especially
for Christmas decoration.
alee -  upon or toward the lee side of a vessel;
away from the wind
benison  -   an utterance of good wishes,
a spoken blessing

Is it proper to have a peek into
a dyadic representation of man’s
mind, a mind bifurcated of two
separate wholes but layered?

Professing a stance to carnalize
on banal weaknesses is to stoop
so low on a human frame

Dingy in preference is no 
validation of intentions and no 
amount of holly cheer in any 
direction alee or otherwise  can 
alleviate evil desires of a 
twisted mind

It runs smack against a profusion
of a priest’s gentle benison to remind
and hopefully to right human failings

For Bjorn's hosting at lqw Wordle #13 and
Tess' at Magpie Tales # 248


  1. I love the first stanza. It invites so much though about relationships between one's self and others, too.

  2. Many tend to stoop low indeed, but then all about perception I suppose

  3. I like that your words found their way honorably to Hope

    ALOHA from Honolulu

  4. Love the way you have inter-weaved so many feelings & messages.
    3rd & 4th paras are especially significant.

  5. The darkness of emotions and conventions...thought provoking

  6. Really great use of those 'not so easy' words!

  7. Interesting use of the words...the human mind is intense...

  8. A bifurcated benison indeed ! Nothing banal about it ...well done mate
