the 10 of 12 given words:
process transfix urge twist visitor
profane (deeply offensive and lack of respect for someone's religious beliefs
smirk (smile in an irritating conceited or silly way)
compunction (a feeling of uneasiness or anxiety) .
updraft (the movement upward of air or gas)
Wabi Sabi- In traditional Japanese aesthetics jt is sometimes described
as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete”

a process transfixed
in minds of those who hate
preaching to a selected mix
wishing damage so great

invoked with profane intensity
sporting a smirk so plain
instead not urging common courtesy
brought a twist of expectations in vain

a visitor with compunction
was a better bet to win over
an updraft of sympathetic concern
facilitated a Wabi Sabi of wonder

  1. Yes, abusive hate speech can alienate rather than convince.

  2. I agree, nothing good comes out of hatred!

  3. This was a nice read. About halfway through, "invoked with profane intensity ...", I began to think about my grandfather. He swore like a trouper and said the reason he couldn't go to church was that his back hurt so bad it wouldn't let him sit long enough for the service.

  4. Common courtesy is all too often lacking.

  5. Hate sure can fester all the more and leave one with a slammed door

  6. I like the ending. Sometimes one person can begin to turn the tide

  7. So true! Sorry for the delay
