3WW given words:   
blunt drunk lethargic
Poetry Jam:  quiet

Blunt in his retort
Drunk with emotions
Lethargic in thinking
Not about to be quiet

Give it to the world
Anyone cares for keeps
Not opening for others
Just keep to your side

World in conflict
Enough bother to date
Set in his thinking
Not in many forms

Just within sights
Keeping it simple
Trumpeting thoughts
All in earnest!

For Thomg's 3WW week #405 and
Peggy's at Poetry Jam

  6. "Not about to be quiet" Trumpet is not the quietest of instruments, that's for sure.

  8. "Trumpeting thoughts" - not a quiet place for me, but perhaps for the trumpeter it is the refuge - a special peace and quiet for thoughts. Well-trumpeted!

  11. Hank,

    Music can often be a great communicator, while also drawing silence to a room..A fine way of reaching a quiet note!!
