Been days, yet to get a decent bite what a bungle!

11 of 12 given words:
bed mice nose grab collect image pin
pupa (insect in the transformation stage following the larva stage)
sear (cook or burn by applying intense heat)
triptych (hinged, three-leaved tablet, written on, in ancient times)
pleonasm (use of more words than necessary;redundancy)

Embedded as a jailbird behind closed doors
Much like a big pupa rolled up in a bundle
Seared by the heater immobilized at the ground floor
Been days, yet to get a decent bite what a bungle

Should  have stocked up for the winter
Like all small creatures mice squirrels and more
A nose for some steak to be downed with beer
Whatever he could grab at the downtown store

Worked on the tablet like a triptych for his poems
He then got behind the wheel but ended looking dumb
His works earlier had already showed lots of pleonasm
Now thick snow along the driveway added to the glum

Had to collect some grub his tummy noise was a bother
The image otherwise was not looking good for him
Pinned his hopes on the weather turning out for the better
Taught him a bitter lesson or he would end up on the brink

  1. One should be prepared and avoid the snow. Not out the door one wants to go.

  2. Winter has been unusually mild for us but there is still plenty of time. The darkness is the worst I just want to get fat and sleep lol I haven't done so but the desire is strong


  3. Winter can be a terrible reminder of the horrors birthed by unpreparedness. And the cold one doesn't care if one goes out into the chill because one is irresponsible, or because one can't afford the warmth...

  4. That idea of a tablet like a triptych is very nice. Makes it seem holy somehow.

  5. I like how thick snow along the driveway "added to the glum". Good one, Hank!

  6. The difficulties of poetry when the sky says it all.. Personally snow would not be glum.

  7. Impressive maneuvering through the poetry challenge.

  8. pupa rolled up in a bundle.l.great description of being snowed in.

  9. When the weather is bad, I stay inside
    like today I did hide...

  10. Enjoyable reading, Hank. You did well with the word list. My favorite phrase, "a jailbird behind closed doors" shows a stay-at-home for sure. I did hear echoes of Grimm's "Ant and the Grasshopper".

  11. Yeah, I like this too, love that title. Be prepared for the long slog!

  12. It is really that time of year. Ready to settle in and hope the stores last.

  13. Yes, be prepared... Great poem and creative, poetic artistry in using the word list.
