He ought to be forgiven he thought

12 given words:
bread butter ferocity gray feed 
home hidden holiness forgiven gutted
burlap (coarse jute fabric)
grained (of textures that are rough to the touch)

3WW given words:
bare crave
asymmetrical (has two sides that don't match - it's uneven)

Midweek Motif  -  space

Bread and butter issues with such
ferocity raced through his gray matter
It's to feed home a crave bare with
emotions but hidden from the likes of
his holiness' guidance that he sought

He ought to be forgiven he thought
He needed space to think clear of grained
ideas already gutted to be best stored
in a burlap now drained of energy

He was still troubled by his asymmetrical
brain that went in many directions and he
was literally stumped for good answers

  1. This was so good Hank, it amazes me how you uses 12 given words to your advantage,


  2. "He needed space to think"...oh, so many are in this position..

  3. wonderful done the way you use words amazes me Hank

  4. Space to think should be added to the list of basic human needs! Thank you for your great comment on my new poem.

  5. Makes me wonder why he's seeking forgiveness.

  6. Quite a prompt mashup you have here, Sir. ;)

  7. We all need space to think and our minds may go in a million different directions.

  8. An unbalanced brain can be such a burden...

  9. Sometimes going this way and that can sure make you go splat

  10. Space to think, on a physical, spiritual and emotional level is so lacking for so many of us... Nice one!
