10 of 11 given words:
kicked bloated bathed leaned 
stuffed poems noon moon
alabaster (pale mineral for carving of statues and vases)
ambled (leisurely, pleasurable walk)

3WW given words:
high-pitched impish 
languid (relaxed, unhurried,leisurely)

Midweek Motif  -  nostalgia

It was a nostalgia of sorts
Had as yet not kicked a bother
Bloated with ideas set for release
Bathed in unpretentious garb
But seemed to be wrought with sins

Leaned on impish tendencies
Playful got stuffed at times
Traumatic but a trite too languid

How he wished for a high-pitched
entry not unlike an alabaster's but
soft enough just as much

Toying with poems at noon
at a moon's pace of progress
he ambled along
He had wished for a semblance
of order and fullness of purpose
Sadly though what transpired
was just a pittance

  1. I like "toying with poems at noon at a moon's pace of progress". This sounds like me.

  2. "He had wished for a semblance
    of order and fullness of purpose" everyone's wish :)

  3. Ah, toying with poems at noon, or (in my case) at midnight! Great use of the given words!

  4. Laughed at the end--the poor poet's pittance. Great job fitting in all those words so eloquently!

  5. Wow! Those were not the easiest words this week, good job at putting them together. Have a good weekend!

  6. I liked best the lines quoted by Myrna. Good one, HanK!

  7. What fun you've had with this one! Which made it fun to read, too.

  8. Sometimes order just won't come, no matter how much you beat its drum.

  9. An ingenious meld of all themes and given words! :-)
