S for Salubrious in the Quest to be Healthy

the 9 of 12 given words:
soft, blind, peacetime midnight 
lilting (to sing or play in a light, tripping manner)
seldom maidens candy moon
salubrious (health-giving)

soft landing blind to any compromise
peacetime culture that creeps in at midnight
playing to a lilting rhythm that seldom varies
salacious in a form as maidens do trite

to knock a salubrious bash in guarded ways
akin to taking candy from a kid that easy
not a sentinel on guard duties like the old days
but very much a dignified soul forthrightly

moon's glow lighting the path to freedom
sensational dancing gyrating true to form

  1. Letting yourself free can sure be the way to be

  2. Excellent use of the words. Pleased to see you left out the naughty ones!

    Another day in Amble Bay!

    1. Hank avoids such words as far as possible. Why some insist on the 4-letter word in their poems? Have seen it! It'll not make it any better with it nor any worse off without it. Beats me!


  3. I liked the phrase "gyrating true to form". That would seem to be a good way to describe what the dancer is doing.

  4. Hank, you reached new heights! Well Written wonder. Challenges met. Plus a compliment to the inspiration of a marvelous writer (Nilanjiana).

    1. Nilan certainly writes lots of factual info through her own experiences not easily available elsewhere. You, noticed it too!


  5. Nice sensational dancing Hank ~ Have a good weekend ~

  6. Man, belly dancing is the best exercise ... so much fun!
