Lying supine nonchalantly quiet drifting

MLMM's Wordle #77 with the given words:
luminary (a celestial body, as the sun or moon)
apothegm (a short,instructive saying; a terse remark or aphorism.)
sidle (to move sideways or obliquely.)
leopard potency prism hazel mutual
tatterdemalion (a person in tattered clothing)
drape skull grope 

Lying supine nonchalantly quiet drifting
No luminary in the heavens above as companions
That likeness of friendship empty but moving
True to the apothegm that he heard often

'if it can go wrong it will'

Reflecting on the hurried decision made yesterday
He did not think it could turn out all mired with regret
No way to sidle about in the boat but to extend the play
Leopard with potency of strength with much to forget

in pangs of loneliness unfulfilled

Golden hues of the surroundings were all of brilliance
Though unlike the prism of rainbow sprouts of colors
He could just dream of the hazel nut eyes in silence
Girl that he left crying who wanted to be mutual lovers

insolence against karmic vengeance

Tatterdemalion draped now searing his skull apart
Alone to grope along amidst calmness of nature
To make amends to hopefully win back her heart
Insurmountable to say the least with that kind of departure

wisdom came too late!

  1. When you miss your chance, sometimes you never get another one.

  2. Ah.. often the regrets come to late.. but as long as we believe in greener grass.. karma's a bitch

  3. The peaceful scene is offset by the worries of the day.

  4. the karmas never leave us so better we do good karmas!

  5. Nice mashup!
    How much do we love the word "Tatterdemalion?" ;)

  6. Consequences bite. Those were difficult words I thought.

  7. When your skull is seared to splitting, best try to stop the bleeding.

  8. Ah ... this lament is perfectly written ... hasty decisions can mean regretting for a long time. Bastet
