His resolve was not broken the very least

Sunday's Whirligig 12 given words:
chasing jagged remains sheared swims missing 
wise keep basket broken pilgrim sorrow 

Excitement of chasing a dream
Jagged as it might seem
But it remained with a flourish
Sheared of glamour that he had wished

Still getting in the drink
Was not a whim
He took to water for lots of swims
A skilled life-saver nothing was missing

Wise move to be a kayaker playboating
One of the ways to keep himself trim
Enhanced his prowess in his basket of fancies
His resolve was not broken the very least

A pilgrim of his desires he chose to undergo
To be a fresh-water sportsman to discard the sorrow

  1. Keeping at it no matter the challenge, a good way to be.

  2. Ha, we all need to find a way to keep ourselves fit. Kayaking sounds like a good plan!

  3. Tenacity is a wonderful way to succeed.
    Well written Hank.

  4. I love kayaking... but I feel that I'm more for the sea than the whitewater rapids... :-)

  5. Tumbling can't break us if we are willing to keep on paddling on!

  6. Very nice. I think your words would have conjured the accompanying picture even if you hadn't provided it. Peace, Linda

  7. What a challenge that would be ~ But good for him to be a good sport in that Hank ~


  8. Great lesson in this to keep on trying. I spend most of the year near the Truckee River where we have a run for Kayaking.

  9. This is my favorite line: "Enhanced his prowess in his basket of fancies"

  10. Exciting! I felt myself urging him on to success.

  11. This gave me a wonderful feeling...nice Hank!

  12. Great use of the words. A picture of perseverance at its finest.

  13. If you hadn't told me I wouldn't of known you used those words. Haven't seem much of you lately Hank. A strong write!
