None to merit the desired attributes

the 12 given words:
bind cost empty forever groove sign gift spare jar free mercy 
flighty (slightly delirious, mildly crazy.)

He was in a bind
Not forgetting the good times
They used to be together
It had cost him plenty of bother

His life was empty without her
Should not be allowed to go on forever
He was dangerously getting into the groove
Looking for signs to invoke and prove

A gift should do the trick it would seem
Could not spare a thought in the interim
The inability of getting a good idea
Was too flighty to make him think proper

Probabilities all in a jar of junk inputs
None too free to merit the desired attributes
Should act fast on the redemption of mercy
For she was expected at the airport in a jiffy

Could there be a compromise
On all things nice
Or would there be a semblance of turbulence
With the meeting of two hard-headed elements

Perhaps the long absence
Would be ideal as a test of patience
Enhancing compassion and charm
It could very well be a false alarm

  1. Well, it looks in the picture as if she was well pleased to see him again, lol. Good one, Hank.

  2. One hopes the outcome was a refilled life, as the illustration suggests!

  3. All this for that. Good one, Hank.

  4. Sure seems like they are back to being as happy as can be with plenty of glee

  5. Perhaps, now was the time to re-bond.

  6. A very well written piece, greetings.

  7. Great poem. I like it. Let's hope it is the good ending he is hoping for that he gets.
